About

Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) may have the capacity to provoke or worsen ventricular tachyarrhythmias (VT). It has been reported that ICD shocks by itself can increase mortality. This study aimed to determine the role of back-up pacing-induced VT (PIT) to the overall ICD shock burden by avoiding pause-related ventricular back-up pacing by programming the pacing output to a sub-threshold level for ineffective pacing.
