BACKGROUND Markers of electrical instability of the ventricular myocardium, namely abnormal repolarization and late potentials, are frequently observed in patients with hypertension when both ventricular arrhythmias and left ventricular hypertrophy are present. This information cannot be extrapolated to the population of hypertensive patients with ventricular arrhythmias but without left ventricular hypertrophy. OBJECTIVE To evaluate QT duration, QT dispersion and the incidence of ventricular… CONTINUE READING
