A reply to a letter by Dr. Lurz and colleagues in regards to the VISTA (Ablation of Clinical Ventricular Tachycardia Versus Addition of Substrate Ablation on the Long Term Success Rate of VT Ablation) trial.

The authors would like to reinforce the concept that the VISTA randomized trial confirms the validity of substrate-based ablation as a better way to perform ischemic VT ablation. The present one is safe and efficacious and therefore valid not only “A PRIMA VISTA.
