BACKGROUND The relationship between a fragmented QRS complex (fQRS) on 12-lead ECG and fatal arrhythmic events in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) remains unclear. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate whether fQRS is associated with ventricular arrhythmic events (VAEs) in HCM patients. METHODS Of an initial cohort of 273 patients (57% male, mean age 55 years) diagnosed with HCM, 167 patients were included and divided into 2 groups: those with fQRS (n = 67) and those… CONTINUE READING
