Prognostic value of QT interval and QT dispersion in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction: results from a cohort of 2265 patients with an ejection fraction of < or =40%.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Increased QT interval and QT dispersion have been associated with higher mortality in population-based studies and in patients with myocardial infarction. However, the prognostic significance of these measurements in patients with left ventricular (LV) systolic dysfunction is not clear. METHODS AND RESULTS Rate corrected QT interval (QTc) and… (More)
