AIM We aimed to report the clinical features related to torsades de pointes (TdP) in patients with complete AV block (CAVB). METHODS Patients with CAVB who were admitted to our instituition between January 2007 and January 2010 were retrospectively evaluated in terms of the occurence of TdP. The clinical features were compared in patients with and without(More)
A 21 year-old male patient was admitted with symptoms of exertional dyspnea and palpitation.

Transthoracic echocardiography disclosed a separate chamber (asterisk) in the interventricular septum. The apical portion of the chamber consisted of(More)
BACKGROUND Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with increased risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmias. Cardiac electrical inhomogeneity may be the leading cause of the increased arrhythmic risk in patients with T2DM. The peak and the end of the T wave (Tp-e) interval and associated Tp-e/QT ratio are promising measures of ventricular(More)
We read with great interest the article entitled 'A 24-hour ambulatory ECG monitoring in assessment of QT interval duration and dispersion in rowers with physiological myocardial hypertrophy' by Lutfullin IY et al. [1] published in the Biology of Sport journal. In the study, the effects of myocardial hypertrophy on cardiac repolarization parameters were(More)
Dear editor We read with great interest the article entitled " P-wave and QT dispersion in patients with conversion disorder " by Izci et al 1 in Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management. In this well designed research, Izci et al studied QT dispersion (QTd) and P-wave dispersion (Pd) in patients with conversion disorder (CD). In conclusion, they reported(More)
