BACKGROUND The long-QT syndrome is associated with sudden cardiac death. Combination of beta-blocker and pacing therapy has been proposed for treatment of drug-resistant patients. The purpose of this study was to summarize our long-term experience with combined therapy in patients with long-QT syndrome. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 37 patients with idiopathic long-QT syndrome were treated with combined therapy consisting of continuous cardiac pacing and maximally tolerated beta-blocker… CONTINUE READING
