In addition to well-known electrocardiographic measurements, as QT, QT dispersion, and QT apex dispersion, new parameters such as Tpeak-Tend, Tpeak-Tend dispersion, and Tpeak-Tend/QT ratio have been recently introduced as indexes of increased arrhythmic risk. The aim of the present study was to test, in overweight and obese subjects not affected by conditions of comorbidity, the aforementioned markers of ventricular repolarization. We studied 60 athletic subjects with normal body weight (21… CONTINUE READING
