BACKGROUND: Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a major cause of mortality in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). The aim of this study was to determine the adult CHD population at risk of SCD and the clinical parameters associated with SCD. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a multicenter case-control study. Patients who died suddenly as a result of proven or presumed arrhythmia were included (cases). For each case, 2 controls matched on diagnosis, type of surgical intervention, age, and gender were included...

BACKGROUND: Long QT-Syndrome (LQTS) is a prevalent and possibly lethal disease. Unfortunately, it has recently been shown that the majority of physicians, including many cardiologists, do not recognize a long QT interval when they see one. Conversely, almost 40% of patients referred to specialized centers with a presumed diagnosis of LQTS have a normal QT. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether we are able to teach inexperienced electrocardiogram (ECG) readers a method that will result in a higher accuracy of QT measurements...

BACKGROUND: Ibutilide is a class III antiarrhythmic drug, frequently used for conversion of atrial fibrillation and flutter. Retrospective cohort evaluations found that intravenous application of magnesium enhances the efficacy of ibutilide for chemical conversion of these arrhythmias. This prospective study sought to investigate the effects of intravenously pre-injected magnesium on the conversion rate of ibutilide for typical and atypical atrial flutter. METHODS: We performed a prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled study...

Our aim was to underline possible differences in heart rate and rhythm patterns between ambulatory and hospitalized children. Holter monitoring was performed on 264 healthy ambulatory children and on 112 children who were hospitalized for noncardiotoxic conditions. Maximal, mean and minimal heart rates decreased with age. Maximal heart rate was significantly higher in ambulatory schoolchildren and adolescents than in hospitalized ones. Sinus arrhythmia was noted on every recording. Some children had episodes of first- or second-degree atrioventricular block while sleeping...

BACKGROUND: Fetal tachyarrhythmia may result in low cardiac output and death. Consequently, antiarrhythmic treatment is offered in most affected pregnancies. We compared 3 drugs commonly used to control supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and atrial flutter (AF). METHODS AND RESULTS: We reviewed 159 consecutive referrals with fetal SVT (n=114) and AF (n=45). Of these, 75 fetuses with SVT and 36 with AF were treated nonrandomly with transplacental flecainide (n=35), sotalol (n=52), or digoxin (n=24) as a first-line agent...

BACKGROUND: The risk of stroke varies considerably across different groups of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Antithrombotic prophylaxis for stroke is associated with an increased risk of bleeding. We provide recommendations for antithrombotic treatment based on net clinical benefit for patients with AF at varying levels of stroke risk and in a number of common clinical scenarios. METHODS: We used the methods described in the Methodology for the Development of Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis Guidelines: Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis, 9th ed: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines article of this supplement...

This statement examines the relation of the resting ECG to its technology. Its purpose is to foster understanding of how the modern ECG is derived and displayed and to establish standards that will improve the accuracy and usefulness of the ECG in practice. Derivation of representative waveforms and measurements based on global intervals are described. Special emphasis is placed on digital signal acquisition and computer-based signal processing, which provide automated measurements that lead to computer-generated diagnostic statements...

Since its introduction as a clinical entity in 1992, the Brugada syndrome has progressed from being a rare disease to one that is second only to automobile accidents as a cause of death among young adults in some countries. Electrocardiographically characterized by a distinct ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads, the syndrome is associated with a high risk for sudden cardiac death in young and otherwise healthy adults, and less frequently in infants and children. Patients with a spontaneously appearing Brugada ECG have a high risk for sudden arrhythmic death secondary to ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation...
