Right bundle branch block and ST segment elevation (RBBB-STE) in the right precordial leads have been reported as a distinct clinical and electrocardiographic syndrome in patients prone to ventricular fibrillation (VF) in the absence of structural heart disease (Brugada syndrome). The purpose of the study was to investigate the role of signal averaged electrocardiogram (SAECG) in identifying patients at high risk among asymptomatic RBBB-STE patients. Thirteen patients with the RBBB-STE ECG were… CONTINUE READING
