Abstract

Eighty-five patients were studied to determine the prognosis of the ventricular tachyarrhythmias at the time of electrophysiologic study. Twenty-five patients (29%) were not inducible when we used a stimulation protocol consisting of up to four extrastimuli delivered at two right ventricular sites. Patients with no inducible arrhythmias were younger (53 vs 59 yrs; p = .06) and had higher ejection fractions (.49 vs .34; p
