To the Editor: In their Clinical Review, Drs Vassallo and Trohman1 examined the role of amiodarone in different clinical settings and, in particular, suggested that “amiodarone can be used safely in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and CHF [congestive heart failure].” However, the authors did not provide a complete analysis of the relevant clinical trials.
