214 patients with single vessel disease were followed-up for 1-78 months (mean 48 months). Incidence of sudden death was studied in relation to coronary artery lesions, left ventricular wall motion and ventricular arrhythmias found during ambulatory ECG recording. Incidence of sudden death was 11% (16 of 144) in patients with lesions of the left anterior(More)
ST-segment analysis on 24-hour Holter ECG was performed in 64 patients with angiographically proven coronary artery disease, a positive exercise test and chronic stable angina. During 125 days of recording, 494 episodes of transient ST-segment depression were observed, at an average of 4.0 +/- 3.7 episodes (1-13 episodes, median: 3 episodes) per day. The(More)
The antiarrhythmic efficacy of a slow-release form of metoprolol was studied in 13 male coronary patients, mean age 47 years (39-59 years) with frequent and complex ventricular arrhythmias (couplets, salvos). The prospective, single-blind trial was based on 24 h Holter monitoring. In each case, the extent of coronary heart disease and the presence of old(More)
Symptomatic and asymptomatic myocardial ischemia during exercise testing and during daily activities (ST-segment analysis on 24-h Holter ECG) was studied in 109 patients with stable angina pectoris and proven coronary artery disease (coronary stenoses greater than 70%) (group I) and in 20 patients with angiographically normal coronary arteries or minimal(More)
The incidence and pattern of ventricular arrhythmias recorded with 24 h ambulatory monitoring were studied in 144 patients with angiographically documented stenoses (greater than or equal to 75%) or occlusions of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) and were related to left ventricular wall motion abnormalities. Ambulatory monitoring was(More)
214 patients with single vessel disease (high grade stenosis greater than or equal to 75% or occlusion of the LAD, RCA or LCX) were followed for 1-78 months, average 51 months. Incidence of sudden death was studied in relation to coronary artery lesions, left ventricular wall motion and ventricular arrhythmias found during ambulatory ECG monitoring at the(More)
102 patients with angiographically documented double vessel coronary artery disease were followed for 1-83 months (mean: 42 months). Incidence of sudden death was studied in relation to location and severity of coronary artery lesions, left ventricular wall motion and ventricular arrhythmias found during long-term ECG monitoring. The incidence of sudden(More)
The definition of underlying heart disease in apparently idiopathic ventricular fibrillation seems to be important in regard to prognosis and choice of therapy. From October 1989, until August 1993, cardiac arrest due to the documented ventricular fibrillation occurred in eight consecutive patients with normal results on clinical examination, normal(More)
BACKGROUND In arrhythmogenic right ventricular disease it is difficult to find an imaging technique not only to suppose but to diagnose this disease. PATIENTS AND METHOD In order to assess the value of selective right ventricular angiography in 104 patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular disease (n = 53), WPW-syndrome (n = 2), sarcoidosis (n = 1),(More)
