Non-VT arrhythmia readmission†37 (0.78)58 (1.22)73 (1.54)147 (3.09)
 Total‡145 (3.05)NANANA
 Pulmonary embolism‡26 (0.55)NANANA

  • The total complication represents either of the four complications studied in the post-index period (including index admission). Each patient might have multiple complications and thus the total complications do not add up to the individual number of complications.

  • *Per cent calculated as of the total 4754 patients with non-ischaemic VT.

  • †12-month post index-ablation period.

  • ‡30-day post-index ablation (including index admission) period.

  • HF, heart failure; VT, ventricular tachycardia.
