ICD devices have been extensively evaluated in prospective elinical trials. This review tries to highlight the design and results of soıne of these trials (CAST, ESVEM, GESICA, SWORD, STAT-CHF, CAMIAT, EMIAT, MADIT, CABG-PATCH, AVID, CIDS, CASH). Hence, we will be able to delineate the risks and benefits of arrhythmia therapy more accurately. Key words:
