Abstract

The long‐term efficacy of pacing for termination o/supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and ventricular tachycardia (VT) was reviewed. Increasingly complex and sophisticated antitachycardia pacing stimulation patterns have evolved, and are outlined. Although excellent results are reported with simple patterns, it may be that the more complex algorithms increase the percentage o/tachycardia patients who may be candidates for implantation of a device. In the papers reviewed, there were 460 patients, 268 with SVT, and 192 with VT. Results were judged to be good‐excellent in 96.5% of both VT and SVT groups.
