Fragmented Surface ECG Was a Poor Predictor of Appropriate Therapies in Patients with Chagas’ Cardiomyopathy and ICD Implantation (Fragmented ECG in CHAgas’ Cardiomyopathy Study)
Main causes of death in chronic Chagas’ cardiomyopathy (CChC) are progressive congestive heart failure and sudden cardiac death. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) have been proved an effective therapy to prevent sudden death in patients with CChC. Identification of predictors of sudden death remains a challenge.
