OBJECTIVES: The authors performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine the efficacy of renal denervation (RDN) in patients with refractory ventricular arrhythmias (VA) or electrical storm (ES). BACKGROUND: Although catheter ablation is efficacious for the treatment of structural heart disease ventricular tachycardia (VT), there are proportion of patients who have refractory VT despite multiple procedures. In this setting, novel adjunctive therapies such as renal denervation have been performed. METHODS: A systematic review of published data was performed. Studies that evaluated patients undergoing RDN for VA or ES were included. Outcome measures of VA, sudden cardiac death, ES,..
