Early repolarization, involving ST-segment elevation and, sometimes, prominent J waves at the QRS-ST junction, has been considered a normal electrocardiographic variant for over 60 years. A growing number of case reports and case-control studies indicate that in some instances, early repolarization patterns are associated with increased risk of idiopathic ventricular fibrillation. Epidemiological evidence indicates a dose effect for the risk of cardiac and sudden death with the extent of J… CONTINUE READING
