DORANTES SANCHEZ, Margarita. Complications of the automated and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator: arrhythmic electrical storm. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 2011, vol.30, n.4, pp.537-554. ISSN 0864-0300.

The service of heart programmed electric stimulation and arrhythmias is national center of reference of patients with or without structural heart disease and malignant ventricular arrhythmias to specify exactly the diagnoses and to take the appropriate therapeutical measures, mainly the implantation of the implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. From 24 years ago these devices are implanted observing the frequent of its complications (included the electrical storm), coinciding with literature. An own series was designed whose data have been published and presented. Now, a panorama of the problem is tried. The device save the life and has precise indications, requiring an appropriate first decision because otherwise the risks are greater than the benefits. This device must to be implanted in who is necessary, but neither must to be placed without a precise indication, in someone who not goes used it but yes to face with all the problems thoroughout the life since once implanted nobody will be bold enough for to remove it.
