BACKGROUND Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) may occur in 0.3 to 2.2% of routine resting electrocardiograms (ECGs) in children with structurally normal hearts. HYPOTHESIS This study tests the hypothesis that repolarization abnormalities are present more frequently on the surface ECG in pediatric patients with benign ventricular ectopy. METHODS A retrospective study was performed examining 32 children with benign ventricular ectopy and structurally normal hearts. The surface ECG was… CONTINUE READING
