Abstract
International guidelines advocate an implantable cardioverter and defibrillator (ICD) in patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) to prevent sudden death (SCD). Previous data suggest that the benefit of ICD therapy in real life may be lower than expected from the results of controlled studies and side-effects are not negligible. It is also unclear whether women benefit from treatment to the same extent as men. The aim of this study was to investigate the balance between benefits and complications of ICD therapy in a real-life population of patients with heart failure.
