Overview

Front-line research presented by international experts in the study of dispersion of ventricular repolarization.

This unique book is the first to offer an update of contemporary knowledge of the dispersion of ventricular repolarization (DVR), from basic concepts to the clinical application of recently obtained knowledge. World-renowned scientists and clinicians in the frontline of this research area have authored 20 chapters on a range of relevant issues, including:
basic studies
methodological aspects
DVR and ventricular arrhythmias
DVR and cardiac disorders
DVR and antiarrhythmic treatment

Growing amounts of recent evidence demonstrate that, in addition to other mechanisms already associated with malignant ventricular arrhythmias, ventricular myocardial cellular repolarization and DVR should be considered as key factors in these arrhythmias, which are a major cause of death in patients with different types of cardiac disease. This understanding has directly impacted clinical practice by creating a platform for development of new treatment concepts.

This book will interest Cardiologists, Electrophysiologists, and Basic and Clinical Pharmacologists, and other clinicians interested in learning more about the subject.

Reviews knowledge and recent research in the dispersion of ventricular repolarization (DVR), from basic concepts to clinical applications. Examines methodological aspects, and DVR and ventricular arrhythmias, cardiac disorders, and antiarrhythmic treatment. Some specific subjects are electrical heterogeneity and the development of arrhythmias, QT dispersion, automatic detection of spatial and temporal heterogeneity of repolarization, the role of ischemia on dispersion of repolarization, and effects of Class I and Class III drugs and of defibrillation. Of interest to cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and basic and clinical pharmacologists. Olsson teaches cardiology at University Hospital, Sweden. Annotation c.
