Abstract

It has been known for some time that low energy transthoracic shocks can terminate an organized ventricular tachycardia. We considered that shocks applied directly to the myocardium via a catheter electrode might terminate sustained ventricular tachycardia with even lower energies than those used transthoracically. The purpose of this report is to provide a brief background of the development of this concept to the point of its implantation in patients.
