Description/Abstract

The evidence base for implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy requires expansion of guidance/indications to allow UK physicians to treat a broader range of patients. The ICD clinical consultees to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) review current guidance/guidelines, explain the evidence base, and suggest a UK ICD implantation strategy.
