Abstract

Objectives: Stalin therapy may be beneficial not only to reduce the risk of vascular events but also to reduce the risk of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. We evaluated the effects of statins on electrophysiologic parameters in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy and established ventricular tachyarrhythmia.
