Identification of prognostic relevant risk factors In patients with cardiomyopathies and arrhythmias we aim to improve prognosis through clinical interventions. Therefore the identification of outcome-relevant parameters is crucial. In patients who underwent CMR-imaging prior to primary or secondary ICD implantation we aim to investigate which patient-specific and CMR parameters are relevant for reaching a primary or secondary endpoint. Besides, we want to find out in which patients the benefits of the lifesaving ICD implantations outweigh the risk of device associated complications.
