BACKGROUND Previous studies indicate that increased QRS duration in ECG is related to the risk of all-cause death. However, the association of QRS duration with the risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) is not well documented in large population-based studies. Our aim was to examine the relation of QRS duration with SCD in a population-based sample of men. METHODS AND RESULTS This prospective study was based on a cohort of 2049 men aged 42 to 60 years at baseline with a 19-year follow-up, during… CONTINUE READING
