Prediction of arrhythmias in primary prevention ICD patients: Resting versus exercise electrocardiogram

Abstract

Ejection fraction and microvolt T-wave alternans (mTWA) lack specificity to predict sudden cardiac death in heart failure (HF). We compared resting ECG variables (QRS duration, lead-dependent T-amplitudes) and exercise-ECG-derived TWA variables (amplitude in the 12 leads, in the orthogonal X, Y, Z leads and in the vector magnitude) of 56 HF patients with an… (More)
