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 increasing… Expand
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 the… Expand
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 mild… Expand
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 and… Expand
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 electrophysiological… Expand
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 and… Expand

- A. Bauer, Marek Malík, +11 authors W. Zareba
- Journal of the American College of Cardiology
- 21 October 2008
This consensus statement has been compiled on behalf of the International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrophysiology. It reviews the topic of heart rate turbulence (HRT) and concentrates on… Expand
Long QT Syndrome.
The hereditary Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a genetic channelopathy with variable penetrance that is associated with increased propensity for polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmias and sudden cardiac… Expand
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 AND… Expand
Reduction in inappropriate therapy and mortality through ICD programming.
- A. Moss, C. Schuger, +14 authors W. Zareba
- The New England journal of medicine
- 12 December 2012
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
