The use of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) in heart failure patients decreases the arrhythmic mortality with the cost of increasing the number of patients to be treated, and microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) testing can be used as a good criteria to better select the candidate for such a therapy.
