Abstract

1. In any patient with intermittent pacing and heart failure examine the pacing burden. Always consider that pacing may be the cause of the heart failure. 2. Amiodarone is a reasonable option to treat patients with ventricular arrhythmia who are on the transplant list. However, amiodarone use needs to be individualized based on the patient’s concurrent morbidities. 3. S-ICD is an attractive but relatively untested treatment for suitable patients who are on the transplant list.
