Distorted T-vector loop and increased heart rate are associated with ventricular fibrillation in a porcine ischemia-reperfusion model.


BACKGROUND The ventricular repolarization (VR) response to short-lasting coronary occlusion has been characterized by 3-dimensional vectorcardiography during angioplasty in humans; the T-vector loop becomes distorted (increased T(avplan)) and more circular (decreased T(eigenvalue)), but these changes have not been related to ventricular arrhythmias… (More)
