    The first ECG shows a wide complex tachycardia with bizarre morphology. Even more importantly, the rhythm is irregularly irregular. Only one rhythm, independent of the shape of its QRS complexes, can be irregularly irregular-and that is atrial fibrillation. This then, is atrial fibrillation with...

    The typical Brugada electrocardiographic (EKG) pattern includes ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads (V1–V3) associated with right bundle branch block (rSR′) like morphology. Recently, a Brugada-like EKG pattern with ST-segment elevation in inferior leads called the...

    Myriad electrocardiographic changes, such as ST-segment elevation/depression, altered T-wave morphology, and QT prolongation, have been described with hyperkalemia in the setting of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) [, ]. We present an adolescent with DKA in whom T-wave inversions was seen despite his...

    Background: In patients with myocardial infarction, ventricular tachycardia is related with nonconductive ventricular scar. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging is an excellent modality to evaluate myocardial scars in myocardial infarction. Furthermore, late potential obtained from signal-averaged...

    Many non-cardiovascular drugs of common clinical use cause, as an unwanted accessory property, the prolongation of the cardiac repolarisation process, due to the block of the HERO (Human Ether-a-go-go Related Gene) potassium channel, responsible for the repolarising 1Kr current. This delayed...
