OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether early afterdepolarization-induced triggered activity is responsible for the initiation of ventricular arrhythmias in dogs with an inherited predisposition to sudden death. BACKGROUND We have identified a colony of German shepherd dogs that display inherited ventricular ectopic activity and sudden cardiac death. The arrhythmias in these animals are pause dependent but are not associated with a prolonged QT interval, suggesting that they might… CONTINUE READING
