The proarrhythmic risk of flecainide has been investigated in the clinical Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial (CAST) in the mid-90s.
For example, the Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial (CAST) showed that treatment of premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) with class IC antiarrhythmic drugs may increase cardiovascular mortality in patients with myocardial infarction (MI) [9].
Rogers et al., "Mortality following ventricular arrhythmia suppression by encainide, flecainide, and moricizine after myocardial infarction: the original design concept of the cardiac arrhythmia suppression trial (CAST)," Journal of the American Medical Association, vol.
Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial (CAST) SAECG Substudy Investigators.
The CAST (Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial) trial showed that three antiarrhythmics decreased the arrhythmias but also caused earlier death in the people taking them, so we don't do that routinely after an MI anymore.
Recently, the Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial showed that the Class Ic drugs flecainide and encainide increased mortality by two and a half times compared with placebo in patients who were enrolled 6 days to 2 years after myocardial infarction and had six or more ventricular ectopics per hour, with no sustained ventricular tachycardia[6, 7].
The company cites continued uncertainty regarding the implications of the cardiac arrhythmia suppression trial (CAST) conducted by the National Institutes of Health, in addition to the availability of a growing number of alternative therapies.
