78 Possible Causes for Short PR Interval, Sudden Cardiac Death

  • Acute Myocardial Infarction

    Crossref PubMed Virmani R, Burke AP, Farb A, Sudden cardiac death, Cardiovasc Pathol, 2001;10:275–82.[uscjournal.com] cardiac death may occur.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Although there is a potential risk of sudden cardiac death in patients with CAS, the prognostic value of CAS was not clear.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a severe burden of modern medicine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] When this ECG pattern appears, sudden cardiac death (SCD) caused by lethal ventricular arrhythmia may occur because clinicians do not pay sufficient attention to this phenomenon[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Article First Online: 14 June 2009 Abstract The demonstration of a circadian variation in frequency of onset of myocardial infarction, sudden cardiac death, and stroke provides[doi.org]

  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

    The purpose of this case report is to introduce a rare case of sudden cardiac death (SCD) with a mild myocardial bridge and a history of WPW.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is defined as the presence of an accessory atrioventricular pathway which is manifested as delta waves and short PR interval on electrocardiography[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Electrocardiography (ECG) of patients with WPW syndrome portrays a short PR interval and a wide QRS interval with a delta wave.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

    The disease affects at least 0.2% of the population worldwide and is the most common cause of sudden cardiac death in young people and competitive athletes because of fatal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In 25 hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients with a strong family history of sudden cardiac death the frequency of allele D was 0.82 (p 0.001 vs normals).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] death (SCD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Preexcitation Syndrome

    Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome and the Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death. Doctors Lounge Website. Available at: . Accessed October 10 2010.[web.archive.org] The classic electrocardiogram in Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is characterized by a short PR interval and prolonged QRS duration in the presence of sinus rhythm with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] PR interval (usually 0.1 second or less; occasionally normal) together with a prolonged QRS complex with a slurred initial component (delta wave).[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Lown-Ganong-Levine Syndrome

    If not corrected quickly, the ventricles can fibrillate causing VF ( ventricular fibrillation ) – leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD).[dictionnaire.sensagent.leparisien.fr] The PR interval is short.

Short PR interval in a 7 years-old boy.[metealpaslan.com] If not corrected quickly, the ventricles can fibrillate causing VF (ventricular fibrillation)- leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD).[wikidoc.org]

  • Atrial Tachyarrhythmia with Short PR Interval

    If not corrected quickly, the ventricles can fibrillate causing VF ( ventricular fibrillation ) – leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD).[dictionnaire.sensagent.leparisien.fr] Five additional family members had short PR intervals with normal QRS, and eight other family members had borderline short PR intervals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If not corrected quickly, the ventricles can fibrillate causing VF (ventricular fibrillation)- leading to sudden cardiac death (SCD).[wikidoc.org]

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

    […] a known risk factor for cardiac mortality and sudden cardiac death. 11 The Lung Health Study investigators reported a RR for hospitalisations due to supraventricular tachycardia[dx.doi.org] (including sudden death) and all-cause mortality.[dx.doi.org] death in susceptible cardiac patients. 9 At the time of regulatory approval, tiotropium was known to be associated with mild decreased heart rate variability, 10 which is[dx.doi.org]

  • Barth Syndrome

    Ventricular arrhythmia, especially during adolescence, can lead to sudden cardiac death. There is a significant risk of stroke.[orpha.net] A recent electrocardiogram (ECG) was essentially unremarkable ( Figure 1 ), showing in sinus rhythm a slightly short PR interval (0.12 ms), and mildly high voltage QRS, in[revespcardiol.org] La Rovere, MT, Pinna, GD, Maestri, R, et al. 2003 Short-term heart rate variability strongly predicts sudden cardiac death in chronic heart failure patients Circulation 107[dx.doi.org]

  • Fabry Disease

    […] with increased risk of sudden cardiac death.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] General physicians and cardiologists should consider the diagnosis of FD in patients with LVH, cardiomyopathy, and conduction abnormalities, including short PR intervals and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pochis WT, Litzow JT, King BG, Kenny D (1994) Electrophysiologic findings in Fabry’s disease with a short PR interval.
