AIMS: A long-detection interval (LDI) (30/40 intervals) has been proved to be superior to a standard-detection interval (SDI) (18/24 intervals) in terms of reducing unnecessary implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) therapies. To better evaluate the different impact of LDI and anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) on reducing painful shocks, we assessed all treated episodes in the ADVANCE III trial. METHODS AND RESULTS: A total of 452 fast (200 ms < cycle length ≤ 320 ms) arrhythmic episodes were recorded: 284 in 138 patients in the SDI arm and 168 in 82 patients in the LDI arm (106/452 inappropriate detections)...
