Abstract

The reproducibility of electrophysiologic testing on successive days was assessed in the absence of antiarrhythmic drug treatment. Forty-two patients, 17 with compromising ventricular tachycardia and 25 with ventricular fibrillation unrelated to myocardial infarction, underwent 2 baseline studies. During the first electrophysiologic study, arrhythmia was induced in 32 of 42 patients (76%); however, during the second study a similar endpoint was reached in only 22 patients (52%)(χ2 = 5.12, p
