"Ventricular tachycardia is a rapid heartbeat that often causes sudden death," says Dr. John Sapp (pictured left), the study's principal investigator and professor of cardiology at Dalhousie Medical School. "VT caused by heart attack scar can be very difficult to deal with, and can have quite a severe impact on both survival and quality of life."

Catheter ablation is a technique used to treat the dangerous heart rhythms by inserting wires into the heart to cauterize short circuits.
"Sometimes we use medication to manage VT. Sometimes we use catheter ablation," says Dr. Sapp, director of the Heart Rhythm Service at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, where the study was coordinated. "Until now, we really didn't know what the best treatment was when our first-line drug therapy didn't work as well as we'd hoped." For most, surgery better than high doses of drugs
The clinical trial involved 259 patients who had prior heart attacks, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, and recurrent VT.
"Heart rhythm researchers and patients who live with VT worked together to discover that catheter ablation is a better option for most," says Dr. Sapp.

"Ablation carries a bit more up front procedural risk, but high doses of the medications we use in an attempt to control VT tend to cause more issues in the long-term," says Dr. Sapp.
