Figure 1: The major implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) trials – hazard ratios (vertical line) and 95% confidence intervals (horizontal lines) for death from any cause in the ICD group compared with the non-ICD group. *Includes only ICD and amiodarone patients from CASH. AVID – Antiarrhythmics Versus Implantable Defibrillators Trial; CABG – Coronary artery bypass graft surgery; CASH – Cardiac Arrest Study Hamburg; CIDS – Canadian Implantable Defibrillator Study; DEFINITE – Defibrillator in Nonischemic Cardiomyopathy Treatment Evaluation Trial; DINAMIT – Defibrillator in Acute Myocardial Infarction Trial; EP – Electrophysiological study; LVD – Left ventricular dysfunction; LVEF – Left ventricular ejection fraction; MADIT – Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial; MI – Myocardial infarction; NICM – Nonischemic cardiomyopathy; NSVT – Nonsustained ventricular tachycardia; PVC – Premature ventricular complex; SAECG – Signal-averaged electrocardiogram; SCD-HeFT – Sudden Cardiac Death in Heart Failure Trial
