Sudden Cardiac Death (Ventricular Tachycardia/Fibrillation)
UW Health's Heart and Vascular Care program strives to obtain the best possible outcomes in a broad range of potentially disabling or even lethal cardiac arrhythmias, including sudden cardiac death, also known as ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation.
Offering inpatient and outpatient diagnosis and treatment, UW Health electrophysiologists carefully define each patient's arrhythmic problem, selecting the most appropriate therapy from a broad list of options.
Diagnosis and Prevention
- Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)
- Surgical treatments, including stenting in our Cath Lab and Heart Bypass (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft surgery - CABG)
