Abstract

Long-term follow-up of 29 consecutive survivors of ventricular fibrillation who underwent revascularization demonstrated that recurrent arrhythmics events were common. Because revascularization alone does not prevent arrhythmia recurrence, treatment with an implantable defibrillator should be considered in these patients.
