BACKGROUND Early repolarization pattern (ERP) has been proved to increase risk of arrhythmia death in the general population, but its prognostic significance in patients with structural heart disease (SHD) is controversial. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to conduct a meta-analysis of studies assessing the association between ERP and risk of… CONTINUE READING
