The prognostic significance of premature ventricular complexes in adults without clinically apparent heart disease: a meta-analysis and systematic review
Most studies on PVC prognosis in ‘normal hearts’ did not use advanced tests to rule out structural heart disease, suggesting that the poor prognosis studies may have inadvertently included patients with occult structural heart Disease, the population in which PVCs are known to confer adverse outcomes.

Empleo del GATED-SPECT con MIBI-Tc99m en la estimación del significado pronóstico de las arritmias ventriculares durante la prueba de esfuerzo
El objetivo del presente trabajo fue evaluar si los pacientes con funcion ventricular izquierda normal y sin isquemia presentan, en el seguimiento alejado, un mayor numero of eventos cardiovasculares en comparacion con aquellos pacients that no desencadenan dicha arritmia. Expand
Computer‐Assisted Analysis of Holter Recordings
24-hour continuous recordings have evolved as the most widely used compromise between technology and convenience in ambulatory populations and may demonstrate striking spontaneous and activity-related arrhythmias. Expand
EKG und Sport
The prolonged QT interval--a frequently unrecognized abnormality.
The clinical importance of the long QT interval syndrome lies in its association with malignant ventricular dysrhythmias which are usually amenable to treatment with either drugs or cardiac pacing.Expand

Ambulatory electrocardiography, exercise tolerance testing, and programmed electrical stimulation studies may aid in the identification of patients at risk for sudden cardiac death and the selection of antiarrhythmic therapy. Expand
Q waves and ventricular extrasystoles in resting electrocardiograms. A 16 year follow up in Busselton study.
Isolated abnormalitites in the resting electrocardiograms of 1546 Busselton people with no history of angina or past myocardial infarction were examined and showed significant independent relationship for Q waves with coronary heart disease and for ventricular extrasystoles with cardiovascular disease.

Electrocardiographic changes induced by suction curettage for elective termination of pregnancy.
To determine if significant electrocardiographic changes occur during suction curettage for elective termination of pregnancy, continuous electrocariogram tracings were obtained from 103 patientsExpand
Propranolol therapy for ventricular arrhythmias 2 months after acute myocardial infarction.
Ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring should be considered for routine evaluation of patients 3 to 8 weeks after acute myocardial infarction and should be followed by antiarrhythmic therapy when complex premature ventricular complexes are noted. Expand
Efficacy of Propranolol in the Control of Exercise‐Induced or Augmented Ventricular Ectopic Activity
Plasma propranolol levels following different routes of administration did not correlate with exerciseinduced maximal heart rates or percent reduction in ventricular ectopy, and ambulatory monitoring underestimated the severity, particularly the highest grades, of vent cardiac ectopy. Expand
