  1. Cost of initial therapy in the electrophysiological study versus ECG monitoring trial (ESVEM).

    Article - En anglais

    Background Patients randomized to either serial electrophysiological testing (EPS) or serial Holter monitoring (HM) to guide antianhythmic therapy for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias had equivalent rates of mortality and arrhythmia recurrence in the ESVEM study.

    This report analyzes the effects of EPS, HM, and clinical factors on the charges for initial evaluation and management of patients with life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias, Methods and Results Ten of 14 clinical centers participating in ESVEM provided bills from the initial hospitalization for randomized patients.
