Patients with a positive microvolt-level T wave alternans (TWA) are characterized by an increased risk of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Arterial hypertension leads to an increase of sudden cardiac death risk, particularly if left ventricular hypertrophy is present. The aim of this study was to investigate the value of TWA in patients with arterial hypertension. Fifty-one consecutive patients were included in the study. TWA analysis was performed with patients sitting on a bicycle ergometer and… CONTINUE READING
