Background and Objectives We checked traditional and high-level precordial electrocardiogram (ECG) leads in patients who had undergone right ventricular outlet obstruction (RVOT) reconstruction surgery and evaluated the effect of ECG lead position on their QRS duration. Subjects and Methods We enrolled 34 patients who had undergone surgery for congenital heart disease with RVOT obstruction and who had received followed up care that included recorded ECG at a pediatric cardiac out-patient clinic… Expand


Induction of ventricular tachycardia during electrophysiologic study after repair of tetralogy of Fallot.
Induction of nonsustained or sustained ventricular tachycardia was associated with a history of syncope and all patients at risk for syncope could not be identified by routine electrocardiogram 24 hour electro Cardiogram or treadmill test; hemodynamic alterations may interact with intraventricular conduction abnormalities and predispose to ventricular gyrations.

Electrocardiographic artifacts due to electrode misplacement and their frequency in different clinical settings.
Accidents in ECG performance do occur with an increasing frequency in an acute medical care setting, and lead misplacement was suspected when one of the following morphological changes occurred. Expand
Relation between right ventricular enlargement, QRS duration, and right ventricular function in patients with tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary regurgitation after surgical repair
There is a correlation between the right ventricular size obtained by three dimensional echocardiography and QRS duration on the surface ECG, indicating mechanoelectrical interaction. Expand
Effect of electrocardiographic lead placement on localization of outflow tract tachycardias.
Small changes in electrocardiographic electrode placement markedly alter the QRS morphology of OTVTs and thus alter the predictability of OVs origin, and have the potential to misdirect ablation procedures. Expand
[Doubts of the cardiologist regarding an electrocardiogram presenting QRS V1-V2 complexes with positive terminal wave and ST segment elevation. Consensus Conference promoted by the Italian Cardiology Society].
The term "Brugada syndrome" should be restricted to patients who have diagnostic ECG changes, as well as a history of symptoms, rather than the syndrome, and high right precordial leads should be recorded whenever standard V1-V3 leads raise the suspicion of Brugada pattern. Expand
New electrocardiographic leads and the procainamide test for the detection of the Brugada sign in sudden unexplained death syndrome survivors and their relatives.
The data suggest that the new higher intercostal space lead ECG, with or without the procainamide test is helpful in detecting the Brugada sign in sudden unexplained death syndrome survivors and their relatives. Expand
Right ventricular overload and induced sustained ventricular tachycardia in operatively "repaired" tetralogy of Fallot.
A stepwise discriminant analysis was made to predict patients with inducible sustained VT in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot, and time period from surgery to follow-up and normalized RV end-systolic volume and RV systolic pressure were higher in group 1 than group 2. Expand
QRS prolongation is associated with inducible ventricular tachycardia after repair of tetralogy of Fallot.
The finding of prolonged QRS duration should suggest the need for further testing to determine the risk of adverse arrhythmic events in patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, even if they are asymptomatic. Expand
Sustained ventricular tachycardia in adult patients late after repair of tetralogy of Fallot.
A combined approach of correcting significant structural abnormalities (pulmonary valve replacement or right ventricular aneurysmectomy, or both) with intraoperative electrophysiologic-guided ablation may reduce the potential risk of deterioration in ventricular function and enable arrhythmia management to be optimized. Expand
Risk factors for arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death late after repair of tetralogy of Fallot: a multicentre study
Arrhythmia and sudden death are important late sequelae for patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, with pulmonary regurgitation being the predominant haemodynamic lesion for patients with ventricular tachycardia andudden death. Expand
