Abstract

A 59-year-old man with ischemic cardiomyopathy had a single-chamber Medtronic Entrust™ ICD and Sprint Fidelis™ Model 6949 dual-coil true bipolar lead implanted over 2 years ago after out-of-hospital VF. His NYHA Class is III and left ventricular ejection fraction is 34%. After an episode of monomorphic VT storm a year ago, he has been treated with amiodarone 200 mg per day to decrease the frequency of VT.
