abstract

  • Thirty-day readmissions after catheter ablation of VT occur in nearly 1 out of 5 cases, with the majority of readmissions being caused by recurrent VT or congestive heart failure. Baseline comorbidities are significant predictors of procedural mortality, complications, and readmissions. Strategies to reduce recurrent VT postablation by improving procedural success, optimizing postablation heart failure treatment, and ensuring close postdischarge follow-up may help reduce readmissions and healthcare costs.
