Objective: Electrical storm (ES) is a life-threatening pathology that requires immediate and effective treatment due to increased morbidity and mortality. Catheter ablation ( CA) is an effective therapeutic option, particularly in patients with drug resistant ventricular arrhythmia episodes. These procedures should only be performed in highly specialized and experienced centers. Here we aimed to assess safety and efficacy of CA in a relatively large cohort with ES in our tertiary center hospital.
