Abstract

The occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) in ischemic heart disease (IHD) patients is related to the presence and extent of fibrotic/scar tissue. As coronary atherosclerosis is the underlying cause of myocardial ischemia and fibrosis, in IHD patients implanted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) we investigated the relation between the VA burden and the complexity of coronary atherosclerotic lesions.
