Background We recently showed the frequent occurrence of an unusual ventricular wall motion abnormality, assessed by echocardiography, in patients with the idiopathic long QT syndrome (LQTS). Two new quantitative indexes were developed: Thl/2 (time needed to reach half of the maximal systolic thickening), which was smaller in LOTS patients than in controls; and TSTh (time spent at a very low thickening rate before rapid relaxation), which was much greater in LOTS patients, indicating the… CONTINUE READING
