Coronary angiography has an important role in diagnosis and treatment of myocardial ischemia-induced life-threatening VT, VF. Myocardial ischemia may induce recurrent polymorphic VT, or VF and is treatable by coronary revascularization.

Coronary Angiography

required urgent revascularization.[2]

2017 AHA/ACC/HRS Guidelines for Management of Patients With Ventricular Arrhythmia

Class I
"1. Coronary angiography is recommended in survivors of sudden cardiac arrest suspected ischemic heart disease for guiding decision about appropriate coronary revascularization (Level of Evidence C)"
