Description

The heart rhythm disorder long QT syndrome (LQTS) can result in sudden death in the young or remain asymptomatic into adulthood. The features of the surface electrocardiogram (ECG), a measure of the electrical activity of the heart, can be equally variable in LQTS patients, posing well-described diagnostic dilemmas. Here we report a correlation between QT interval prolongation and T-wave notching in LQTS2 patients and use a novel computational framework to investigate how individual ionic...[Show more]
