Beat-to-beat variability of QT intervals is increased in patients with drug-induced long-QT syndrome: a case control pilot study.

Abstract

AIMS Torsades de pointes arrhythmias (TdP) occur by definition in the setting of prolonged QT intervals. Animal models of drug induced Long-QT syndrome (dLQTS) have shown higher predictive value for proarrhythmia with beat-to-beat variability of repolarization duration (BVR) when compared with QT intervals. Here, we evaluate variability of QT intervals in… (More)
