BACKGROUND J waves are the hallmark of both inferolateral early repolarization (ER) and Brugada syndrome. While ajmaline, a class 1a antiarrhythmic drug, accentuates the J wave in Brugada syndrome, its effect on ER is unreported. OBJECTIVE To describe the effect of ajmaline on the electrocardiogram in ER. METHODS We analyzed electrocardiograms before and after the administration of intravenous ajmaline (1 mg/kg) in 31 patients with ER, 21 patients with Brugada type 1 electrocardiogram (Br… CONTINUE READING
