BACKGROUND Non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT) during ambulatory electrocardiographic monitoring (typically occurring at rest or during sleep) is associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The prevalence and prognostic significance of ventricular arrhythmias during exercise is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS This was a cohort study, with prospective data collection. We studied 1380 patients, referred to a cardiomyopathy clinic… CONTINUE READING
