Heart rate variability.
Heart rate variability (HRV) provides indirect insight into autonomic nervous system tone, and has a well-established role as a marker of cardiovascular risk. Recent decades brought an increasingExpand

Prophylactic implantation of a defibrillator in patients with myocardial infarction and reduced ejection fraction.
BACKGROUND Patients with reduced left ventricular function after myocardial infarction are at risk for life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. This randomized trial was designed to evaluate theExpand

Cardiac-resynchronization therapy for the prevention of heart-failure events.
BACKGROUND This trial was designed to determine whether cardiac-resynchronization therapy (CRT) with biventricular pacing would reduce the risk of death or heart-failure events in patients with mildExpand

Diagnosis of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy/Dysplasia: Proposed Modification of the Task Force Criteria
Background— In 1994, an International Task Force proposed criteria for the clinical diagnosis of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D) that facilitated recognition andExpand

Genotype-Phenotype Correlation in the Long-QT Syndrome: Gene-Specific Triggers for Life-Threatening Arrhythmias
Background—The congenital long-QT syndrome (LQTS) is caused by mutations on several genes, all of which encode cardiac ion channels. The progressive understanding of the electrophysiologicalExpand

Effectiveness and limitations of beta-blocker therapy in congenital long-QT syndrome.
BACKGROUND beta-blockers are routinely prescribed in congenital long-QT syndrome (LQTS), but the effectiveness and limitations of beta-blockers in this disorder have not been evaluated. METHODS ANDExpand

Reduction in inappropriate therapy and mortality through ICD programming.
BACKGROUND The implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is highly effective in reducing mortality among patients at risk for fatal arrhythmias, but inappropriate ICD activations are frequent,Expand
