  • An electrocardiographic pattern was encountered in patients with cerebrovascular accidents which consisted primarily of T waves of large amplitude and duration. Large U waves were often present which may fuse in part or entirely within the T wave. Because of the presence and fusion of the T and U waves, the prolonged Q-T interval associated with the pattern was most probably a Q-U interval.
