This session will address several common clinical conundrums in preventing sudden death with an ICD in clinically relevant scenarios:

  • Patient with an extensive MI, EF of 30% and undergoes a PCI with asymptomatic NSVT noted on telemetry-is it better to consider an ICD early rather than be too late, and is there a role for a “life vest”?
  • The patient with severe non-ischemic cardiomyopathy on OMT-is there any mortality benefit provided by an ICD and the clinical importance of improved risk stratification by incorporating cardiac MRI and genetic screening
  • The potential harbinger of an appropriate or inappropriate ICD shock and role of VT ablation Opens in a new window
