Long QT syndromes and torsade de pointes
In the long QT syndromes (LQTS), malfunction of ion channels impairs ventricular repolarisation and triggers a characteristic ventricular tachyarrhythmia: torsade de pointes. Symptoms in the LQTSExpand

J-point elevation in survivors of primary ventricular fibrillation and matched control subjects: incidence and clinical significance.
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether J-point elevation is a marker of arrhythmic risk. BACKGROUND J-point elevation has been considered an innocent finding among healthyExpand

Effectiveness of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy by QRS Morphology in the Multicenter Automatic Defibrillator Implantation Trial–Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (MADIT-CRT)
Background— This study aimed to determine whether QRS morphology identifies patients who benefit from cardiac resynchronization therapy with a defibrillator (CRT-D) and whether it influences the riskExpand

Does Tpeak-Tend provide an index of transmural dispersion of repolarization?
Differences in the time course of repolarization of the three predominant myocardial cell types have been shown to contribute to the inscription of the T wave of the electrocardiogram (ECG). VoltageExpand
