Brief Answer: Following treatment options for ventric.tachy... Detailed Answer: Hi, Before deciding for the right treatment, you should do the following cardiac tests: - coronarography - electro-physiological study of the heart to determine if the ventricular tachycardia can be reversed. Depending on the problems of the heart, the best treatment will be prescribed: - if ischemia is present, stent or CABG should be the best option - if electro-physiological problems, ablation is the best treatment option; while ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator) should be considered. I also advise to: - control the thyroid function - avoid alcohol/ caffeine/energetic drinks - try to control stress Hope it was of help! Dr.Benard Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
