Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial–Reduce Inappropriate Therapy - MADIT-RIT

Description:

Although implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs)/cardiac resynchronization therapy devices (CRT-Ds) have a significant role in preventing sudden cardiac death in high-risk patients, especially for secondary prevention, inappropriate ICD shocks are common (8-40%). They are associated with high morbidity as well.
