The number of patients eligible for implantable cardioverter defibrillator implantation is large and growing. Results of the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial-II, Comparison of Medical Therapy, Pacing, and Defibrillation in Heart Failure trial, and Sudden Cardiac Death in Heart Failure Trial will have a major impact on health care expenditure and economics in all countries. Therefore, one of the most important challenges in today's cardiology is finding more specific and accurate risk stratification strategies (rather than simply ejection fraction) for primary prevention of sudden cardiac death in patients who have suffered myocardial infarction. We hereby reviewed the existing data on potential risk stratifiers and assessed their impact on every day decision making and patient selection for ICD implantation.
