Long QTc predicts future cardiac death in stroke survivors.


OBJECTIVES To test the hypothesis that the QTc of any lead of the ECG predicts death after stroke, and to determine which lead of the ECG carries the greatest risk of cardiac death when its QTc is measured. DESIGN Standard 12 lead ECGs were analysed by one observer who was blind to patient outcome. SETTING A major teaching hospital in Scotland… (More)
