Abstract

Ventricular arrhythmia (VA) is a significant factor in the clinical management of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). Understanding the implications of VA in ventricular assist device-supported CHF patients is critical to appropriate clinical decision making in this special population. This article details research findings on this topic, and attempts to link them to practical patient management strategies.
