Image: Normal electrocardiogram (ECG) and an ECG showing QT interval prolongation (long QT syndrome). The P wave represents atrial depolarization; the QRS complex, ventricular depolarization; and the T wave, ventricular repolarization. The QT interval is measured from the beginning of the QRS complex to the return of the T wave to the isoelectric line (Photo courtesy of Mayo Clinic).

Several Genes Linked to Long QT Syndrome Reappraised

 Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is the first described and most common inherited arrhythmia. Over the last 25 years, multiple genes have been reported to cause this condition and are routinely tested in patients. More...
