Left Ventricular Dysfunction and Electrophysiologic Study in the Primary and Secondary ICD Trials
During the last 20 years the utility of electrophysiologic study (EPS) for risk stratification in patients with coronary artery disease has been studied without reaching consensus. During the 1980s this procedure was the mainstay of risk stratification for patients with sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) or sudden death.
