To determine the effect of cardiac conduction defects on the signal-averaged electrocardiogram (ECG) and on its ability to noninvasively identify patients predisposed to ventricular tachycardia (VT), standard 12-lead ECGs and signal-averaged ECGs were obtained in 213 patients with normal conduction and 186 patients with various conduction defects. Sustained VT was induced by programmed stimulation or occurred spontaneously in 122 patients. Two-way analysis of variance showed that conduction… CONTINUE READING
