article description
The benefits of implanted defibrillators in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) are well known. However, the evidence is less robust in patients with non-ischemic heart disease (non-IHD). We aimed to determine whether patients with non-IHD have a similar incidence of appropriate shocks and all-cause mortality compared to those with IHD.
