Impact and management of ventricular tachycardia on patients.
Ventricular tachycardia is an important cause of sudden death. Risks and treatment approaches are determined by the underlying heart disease. Ventricular tachycardia is most commonly associated with ischemic heart disease or other forms of structural heart disease that are associated with the risk of sudden cardiac death. Several patient groups at high risk of sudden death from VT have been identified and benefit from ICD. It is important to distinguish between high-risk groups and idiopathic VT patients without structural heart disease who have a better prognosis.Author(s): Hilliard Morita
