2007 CARDIOVASCULAR THERAPY AND PREVENTION  
Sudden cardiac death (SCD) remains the principal cause of coronary heart disease (CHD) deaths. Therefore, studying SCD mechanisms, implementing new prognostic and preventive approaches are the main aims of modern cardiology. The review analyzes modern approaches to myocardial electrical instability correction and prognosis improvement in CHD patients. It has been proved that among all antiarrhythmics, beta-adrenoblockers only, and perhaps amiodaron, can reduce SCD incidence. Total mortality and
