At the University of Chicago Medicine, we understand that successful treatment is not possible without a commitment to research that is most likely to change clinical practice. Our ventricular tachycardia team is dedicated to clinical investigation and research to discover more innovative and comprehensive treatment options for patients.

A Leading Center for Ventricular Tachycardia Research

Innovations in Mapping Systems

As high-resolution mapping continues to improve VT treatment and outcomes, our team is among worldwide leaders in investigating the use of the most advanced mapping systems available. Mapping is essential to localize the areas that are most likely to cause arrhythmias. By using various strategies, mapping can be performed during a VT episode that is triggered during the procedure.

We are the first group to describe that some types of ventricular tachycardia have dimensions that are less than 1 cm, which highlights the need to examine and map the arrhythmias in high detail. Learn more about the different applications of mapping technology at UChicago Medicine:

Selecting the Best Treatment

Each patient is unique, which means we know that there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment for ventricular tachycardia. Our team thoroughly analyzes new and existing treatments to make sure we can be certain which opinions will give you long-term success. Read about how researching how specific approaches can improve the outcomes of therapies for VT:

Importance of Outcomes Data

Because outcomes data is just as important as the treatment itself, we consider current, accurate outcomes data the cornerstone of successful care. Our team regularly studies outcomes information in order to offer the best solution(s) to each patient and we have a dedicated prospective ablation registry that tracks the safety and efficacy of all procedures done at UChicago.

Clinical Trials for Ventricular Tachycardia

UChicago Medicine physicians and researchers are actively leading clinical trials for new and better treatments for ventricular tachycardia. Our experts are using clinical trials to transform basic research into bedside care so we can offer our patients the benefits of novel therapies before they are widely available.
