Barsheshet A et al. – These findings suggest that a simple risk score can identify patients who derive significant long–term benefit from primary implantable cardioverter–defibrillator (ICD) therapy. High–risk patients with multiple comorbidities composed 17% of the MADIT–II population and did not derive long–term benefit from nonresynchronization device therapy.
