OBJECTIVE To identify intracardiac conduction abnormalities in patients with myotonic dystrophy from their clinical, ECG, and genetic features. METHODS 39 consecutive patients (mean (SD) age 42. 9 (12.1) years; 16 female, 23 male) underwent clinical examination, genetic studies, resting and 24 hour ambulatory ECG, signal averaged ECG, and(More)
In 39 patients with myotonic dystrophy, we found a high percentage of infrahissian cardiac conduction abnormalities (51%) and late potentials (46%), whereas spontaneous and inducible ventricular arrhythmias were rare. These results suggest that the prolongation of QRSD and the duration of the low-amplitude signal on the signal-averaged electrocardiogram(More)
The incidence and the nature of medium-term complications of automatic implantable cardiac defibrillators (AICD) were studied. Seventy-nine AICD were implanted in 50 consecutive patients (42 men, aged 54.5 +/- 13.7 years). Forty-six patients had spontaneous ventricular arrhythmia. These arrhythmias were resistant to treatment (N = 9), reproducible with(More)
