Authors: Kusumoto F
This review presents five cases that highlight the complexity of taking care of patients with ventricular arrhythmias. Three of the cases discuss management of patients with nonsustained ventricular tachycardia in the setting of structural heart disease: dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and after myocardial infarction. A fourth case asks whether data from implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) trials can be extrapolated to older patients, and the fifth case discusses management of recurrent ventricular arrhythmias in a patient with an ICD.
