Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias (SVTA) are an accepted cause of cardiac arrest in patients with Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome (WPW) and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy but their participation in other conditions is less well understood. The purpose of the study was to examine the role of SVTA in sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) by comprehensive evaluation of(More)
An electrophysiologic study (EPS) of children and teenagers with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and normal electrocardiography (ECG) in sinus rhythm was evaluated. Generally, EPS is performed only before paroxysmal SVT ablation in these patients. In this study, 140 patients (mean age, 15 ± 3 years) with normal ECG in sinus rhythm were studied(More)
Programmed ventricular stimulation could be a useful technique to detect patients at high risk for ventricular arrhythmias and sudden death after acute myocardial infarction. However, prevention of arrhythmic events using this technique has never been demonstrated. To determine whether prophylactic antiarrhythmic therapy influences prognosis after acute(More)
