Abstract

Currently, device therapy with implantable cardioverter-defibrillators is the only proven effective therapy for sudden cardiac death. However, new insights into the mechanisms of ventricular fibrillation, particularly the role of dynamic factors that cause wave instability, are providing conceptual advances toward developing effective new pharmacotherapy.
