"Sudden cardiac death" in seemingly healthy, active, and asymptomatic people has always been a tragic fact and is now occurring more frequently. Thus, the preventive detection of "subjects at risk" becomes a priority. A traditional resting electrocardiogram can sometimes give useful indications. Fifty-two competitive triathletes were compared with 22 control persons with similar anthropometric parameters. All subjects underwent the same noninvasive cardiac exploration with electrocardiography, bidimensional echo-Doppler examination, and maximal spiroergometric exercise tests, on a stationary bicycle as well as on a treadmill...

HISTORY: Some weeks previously a 34-year old athlete, specializing in the triathlon, had 6 syncopes in one day. They had caused abrasions and contusions resulting from the falls. At another hospital paroxysmal atrial fibrillation had been diagnosed and treatment with disopyramide (2 x 200 mg) initiated, but she had about 15 further syncopes within 2 weeks. She was admitted for establishing their cause. INVESTIGATIONS: Initial ECGs and neurological examination failed to provide a diagnosis and she was discharged with an "event recorder"...

OBJECTIVES: The primary purpose was to evaluate the prevalence of late potentials (LPs) in triathletes before and after a half ironman triathlon. The secondary purpose was to examine whether LPs are the electrocardiographic expression of a greater myocardial mass. METHODS: Nine asymptomatic male triathletes (mean age +/- SD, 32 +/- 5 yr) were examined using signal-averaged ECG (SAECG) 48-72 h before (PRE), immediately after (POST), and 24-48 h after the completion (RECOVERY) of a half ironman triathlon...

UNLABELLED: Sudden death is a tragic fact, unexpectedly arising in all age groups. Ventricular arrhythmias are the main cause. At the end of a maximal exercise test more ventricular premature beats were noted in a group of well trained triathletes compared with a similar control group. The etiology is multifactorial. When these ventricular premature beats are associated with specific structural and functional heart adaptations, echocardiographically and electrocardiographically well-documented, then those 'banal' ventricular premature beats cannot longer be considered as a physiological phenomenon...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
