About this Book

Ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths each year throughout the world. Covering the most recent developments in this field, this leading text serves as a guide to this area of increasing clinical importance, addressing a wide range of topics, including:

  • basic mechanisms of ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation
  • clinical syndromes and etiologies
  • epidemiology and risk stratification
  • pharmacologic therapy
  • ablation and surgery
  • implantable defibrillators

Ventricular Arrhythmias and Sudden Cardiac Death provides the information that cardiologists, cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiac electrophysiology fellows, scientists, industry, and associated professionals need to know about current and evolving Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia treatment and diagnosis. As the most comprehensive book on this topic, it will serve as the text that this readership will turn to first.
