220 Possible Causes for Short QT Interval

  • Hypercalcemia

  • Digoxin

    The short QT interval, the “sagging” appearance in the inferior leads and the lack of voltage criteria for LVH indicates that this is digoxin effect rather than LVH.[lifeinthefastlane.com] QT interval with secondary repolarisation abnormalities affecting the ST segments, T waves and U waves.[lifeinthefastlane.com] Mechanism The ECG features of digoxin effect are seen with therapeutic doses of digoxin and are due to: Shortening of the atrial and ventricular refractory periods — producing a short[lifeinthefastlane.com]

  • Conduction Disorder of the Heart

    Congenital short QT syndrome is a new familial primary electrical disease of the heart, which is characterized by abnormally short QT interval and paroxysmal atrial and ventricular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Histiocytoid cardiomyopathy, Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, Isolated noncompaction of the left ventricle, Long QT syndrome (LQTS) and Brugada syndrome, are all[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

    No mutations in genes related to short QT syndrome were found. We found short QTc interval in males with KS, with further shortening of the QTc interval by T.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The prevalence of mutations in genes related to short QT syndrome was determined in participants with a QTc 330 ms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Compared to controls, the QTc-interval was shorter (P 0.02-0.06) in males with KS depending on the applied correction method.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Digitalis

    We studied the effect of digitalis on nerve conduction dysfunction in Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease (PMD). The patients were three Japanese boys with PMD, aged 7-10 years. Digitalis was administered orally in a daily dose of 0.06 mg/kg for 2 consecutive months, and the obtained serum concentrations ranged from 0.33[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vitamin D Toxicity

    Nowadays vitamin D (25-OHD) deficiency is supposed to be a global epidemic condition. Expectedly, vitamin D measurement and intake exponentially increased in Brazil in this decade. Although the benefit of vitamin D to general health is still in debate, its indiscriminate use potentially may lead to enhance the incidence[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
