Abstract

Many problems remain to be solved before implanted pacers can assume a major role in the treatment of ventricular tachycardia. Case histories are cited to illustrate some of the difficulties to be overcome. Possible mechanisms for the success and failure of antitachycardia pacing are reviewed. Prospects for antitachycardia pacing will increase with the advent of cardioverter/defibrillator back‐up.
