BACKGROUND Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is an inheritable cardiac disease predisposing to malignant ventricular arrhythmias. OBJECTIVE We aimed to explore the incidence and severity of ventricular arrhythmias in patients with CPVT before the initiation of β-blocker treatment, when treated with β1-selective β-blockers, and when treated with nadolol. METHODS In this study, 34 patients with CPVT were included (mean age 34 ± 19 years; 15 (44%) women; 30 (88… CONTINUE READING
