170 Possible Causes for Early Repolarization

  • Early Repolarization Syndrome

    Abstract The syndrome of the early repolarization variant is described.[] Although early repolarization syndrome is considered a benign entity, its arrhythmogenic potential still remains unknown.[] Early repolarization syndrome (ERS) is a cardiac abnormality, once thought to be benign, that is characterized by J-point elevation.[]

  • Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation

    BACKGROUND: Recently, we and others reported that early repolarization (J wave) is associated with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation.[] BACKGROUND: A high incidence of early repolarization (ER) pattern in the inferolateral leads has been reported in patients with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (IVF).[] BACKGROUND: The early repolarization (ER) pattern on ECG is associated with an increased risk of idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (ID-VF).[]

  • Cocaine Abuse

    We report three sickle cell patients with recent cocaine abuse who presented with typical symptoms of vaso-occlusion rapidly progressing to major organ dysfunction. Our experience suggests cocaine abuse is a risk factor for major complications of a sickle cell painful episode. Enhanced clinical and laboratory[…][]

  • Brugada Syndrome

    KEYWORDS: J-waves; early repolarization; electrocardiography; sudden cardiac death; ventricular fibrillation[] This study confirms the independent predictive value of previous VF and syncopal episodes, f-QRS, type 1 electrocardiogram, and early repolarization pattern.[] We describe a unique case in which a patient developed inferior J waves with an early repolarization-type electrocardiogram following successful epicardial infundibular substrate[]

  • Familial Short QT Syndrome

    The term “early repolarization” (ER) has long been used to refer to a heterogeneous group of specific QRS‐T junction patterns that are commonly found on the electrocardiograms[] Kambara H, Phillips J (1976) Long-term evaluation of early repolarization syndrome (normal variant RS-T segment elevation).[] repolarization pattern in the ECG and that the presence of early repolarization is strongly associated with arrhythmic events.[]

  • Anterior Myocardial Infarction

    BACKGROUND: Early repolarization (ER) and acute left anterior descending artery occlusion (LADO) may be difficult to distinguish.[] He presented with the combined electrocardiographic abnormality of the Brugada-like or early repolarization pattern, which was misdiagnosed as acute anterior myocardial infarction[] BACKGROUND: Repolarization dynamicity (QT/RR) is supposed to be a prognostic marker in post-MI patients.[]

  • Ventricular Fibrillation

    Prominent early repolarization pattern was the most likely trigger of the VF storm in this Brugada patient.[] Patients presenting with aborted cardiac arrest who display early repolarization generally are diagnosed with early repolarization syndrome.[] INTRODUCTION: Brugada syndrome (BrS) and early repolarization syndrome (ERS) are termed the J-wave syndrome.[]

  • Posterior Myocardial Infarction

    The mechanism of these ECG modulations of the RBBB pattern was believed to be a superimposition of the early depolarization and repolarization consequences of the PMI.[] Electrocardiographic differentiation of early repolarization from subtle anterior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Ann Emerg Med 2012; 60 :45–56. 5.[] In some cases the slope is downward (convex), which can be confused with early repolarization.[]

  • Athletic Heart Syndrome

    As mentioned previously, sinus bradycardia, AV blocks, extrasystoles, and early repolarization are hallmarks of athletic heart syndrome.[] Results from asymmetry in repolarization due to vagal tone Why is early repolarization common in athlete hearts?[] Early repolarization (J point elevation 1 mm) in leads V1-V3 is seen in a majority of endurance athletes.[]

  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    In this review, we discuss the current state of knowledge regarding these mutations present in Timothy Syndrome, Long and Short QT Syndromes, Brugada Syndrome and Early Repolarization[] Augmentation of J waves and electrical storms in patients with early repolarization.[] Long-term outcome associated with early repolarization on electrocardiography. N Engl J Med. 2009 ; 361 : 2529–2537 . Crossref Medline Google Scholar 86.[]
