Abstract

To the Editor: Horowitz and his co-workers indicated in the March 13 issue that the results of surgical treatment of ventricular tachycardia obtained by our group were poor. In referring to those results, they stated:“In their patients with coronary-artery disease, surgery guided by epicardial mapping alone has been almost uniformly unsuccessful in abolishing the tachycardia (the procedure was successful in one of 13 patients).”In our article we reported one success and one failure.1 We indicated that we could not interpret the results in the other 11 patients; the reason for this was that we were attempting to evaluate. . .
