Brief description of study

The patients who undergo ICD(implantable cardioverter defibrillator) implantation for the primary prevention of sudden cardiac death with severe LV(left ventricle) dysfunction (ejection fraction 40%) by ICM(idiopathic cardiomyopathy).

Indications for ICD implantation for primary prevention in accordance with 2016 revised Korean indication guideline on ICD implantation

  • FU LVEF(Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction) 30% (at least 40 days post-myocardial infarction)
  • FU LVEF 31~35%, NYHA(the New York Heart Association) class II, III (at least 40 days post-myocardial infarction)
  • FU LVEF 40%, NSVT(non-sustained ventricular tachycardia) (Holter), inducible VF(ventricular flutter) or sustained VT(ventricular tachycardia) at electrophysiological study (at least 40 days post-myocardial infarction)
