206 Possible Causes for Early Repolarization, Heart Disease

  • Early Repolarization Syndrome

    METHODS AND RESULTS: Fifty-six patients showing inferolateral ER in the standard ECG and spontaneous ventricular fibrillation (VF) not linked to structural heart disease underwent[] Abstract The syndrome of the early repolarization variant is described.[] We report the case of a 52-year-old man with no structural heart disease whose electrocardiogram showed type 2 ER pattern (with evidence of J-point and ST-segment elevation[]

  • Brugada Syndrome

    The Genetic Heart Disease Clinic held at the Sydney Heart Centre at RPA Hospital can screen relatives (appointments phone 02 9517 2011).[] 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.[]

  • Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation

    To address the question whether the S-ICD system is safe and feasible for young patients with electrical heart disease or idiopathic ventricular fibrillation (VF), the data[] BACKGROUND: Recently, we and others reported that early repolarization (J wave) is associated with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation.[] disease.[]

  • Athletic Heart Syndrome

    As mentioned previously, sinus bradycardia, AV blocks, extrasystoles, and early repolarization are hallmarks of athletic heart syndrome.[] Information as to whether the electrical remodelling of the athlete's heart mimics that of patients with heart disease, and therefore serves as a substrate for ventricular[] Results from asymmetry in repolarization due to vagal tone Why is early repolarization common in athlete hearts?[]

  • Anterior Myocardial Infarction

    BACKGROUND: Early repolarization (ER) and acute left anterior descending artery occlusion (LADO) may be difficult to distinguish.[] Myocardial Infarction: A Companion to Braunwald’s Heart Disease, by David A.[] He presented with the combined electrocardiographic abnormality of the Brugada-like or early repolarization pattern, which was misdiagnosed as acute anterior myocardial infarction[]

  • Posterior Myocardial Infarction

    In some cases the slope is downward (convex), which can be confused with early repolarization.[] ICD-10-CM Codes › I00-I99 Diseases of the circulatory system › I20-I25 Ischemic heart diseases › I21- Acute myocardial infarction › ST elevation (STEMI) myocardial infarction[] So in general, incomplete bundle branch block should trigger a non-invasive search for underlying heart disease.[]

  • 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[] disease.[] Augmentation of J waves and electrical storms in patients with early repolarization.[]

  • Ventricular Fibrillation

    BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation is an effective therapy for ventricular fibrillation (VF) arising from the Purkinje system in ischemic heart disease.[] Prominent early repolarization pattern was the most likely trigger of the VF storm in this Brugada patient.[] There may be known diagnosis or suggestion of pre-existing heart disease - eg, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, valvular heart disease, myocarditis, congenital heart[]

  • Familial Short QT Syndrome

    Structural heart disease was ruled out in all patients.[] 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[] repolarization pattern in the ECG and that the presence of early repolarization is strongly associated with arrhythmic events.[]

  • Acute Atrial Infarction

    In addition, continuous electrocardiographic monitoring has resulted in the recognition of specific arrhythmias related to acute ischemic heart disease and thus to the development[] Spodick DH: Differential characteristics of the electrocardiogram in early repolarization and acute pericarditis. N Engl J Med 1976;295:523-526. Crossref 4.[] Zipes: Braunwald's heart disease: a textbook of cardiovascular medicine. 7th ed. Philadelphia: WB Saunders; 2005:803–863. Google Scholar 32.[]
