AIMS Prolongation of repolarization dispersion measured from the 12-lead surface ECG has been associated with sudden cardiac death and ventricular tachyarrhythmia in a variety of heart disorders. This study tested the hypothesis that increased repolarization dispersion is of prognostic value in identifying chronic heart failure patients at high risk of sudden cardiac death and ventricular tachyarrhythmia. RESULTS In 163 patients, ischaemic (n = 126) and idiopathic dilated (n = 37… CONTINUE READING
