Appropriate shock therapy (AST) occurs in the minority of patients with implantable cardioverter defirillators (ICDs). Evaluating predictors of ICD therapy may be helpful in developing risk stratifiation strategies for these patients. This could help the physician with his decision to offer ICD implantation. Expanding the indication to more permissive uses of ICD implantation seems to have resulted in selection of patients who are less likely to benefi from ICD. We assessed which patients received AST and whether there were any predictive factors.
