BACKGROUND Cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is known to be associated with congestive heart failure, conduction disorders, and tachyarrhythmias. Ventricular arrhythmias are the most feared cardiac manifestation because they often are unpredictable, may be the fi rst manifestation of the disease, and may be fatal. The propensity for the development of supraventricular arrhythmias (SVAs) in patients with CS has not been described. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence as well as the… CONTINUE READING
