One small cohort study of ICD use in this disease found a high mortality rate and low ICD efficacy because of rapid progression of heart failure, pulseless electrical activity, and failure of other organ systems (54).

It is based on diseased tissue either acquired or genetic with local electrical instability. Treatments are emerging as we learn about the effects of aspirin and `-blockers.
