Fetal ventricular tachycardia: betablockers should be the first line treatment.
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jogoh.2020.101946
Journal of Gynecology Obstetrics and Human Reproduction; Vaksmann G, Lucidarme S et. al.

Oct 17th, 2020 - Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a rare cause of tachycardia during the fetal life. Coexistence of VT with sinus bradycardia or second-degree heart block strongly suggests long QT syndrome (LQTS) [1-3] and needs to administrate to the mother beta-b...

1970-2020: 50 years of research on the long QT syndrome-from almost zero knowledge to p...
https://doi.org/10.1093/eurheartj/ehaa769
European Heart Journal; Schwartz PJ

Oct 15th, 2020 - To those of us involved in clinical research it seldom happens to begin working on a rather obscure disease, still largely unexplored, and to follow its ripening into a medical entity of large interest to clinicians and basic scientists alike, and...

Torsades de Pointes During Myringotomy in a Child with Congenital Long QT Syndrome: A C...
https://doi.org/10.12659/AJCR.925602
The American Journal of Case Reports; Coleman M, Imundo JR et. al.

Oct 15th, 2020 - BACKGROUND Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is an arrhythmogenic heart condition that can be congenital or acquired. Prolonged ventricular repolarizations in individuals with the disorder can cause fatal arrhythmias. Abnormal functioning of cardiac ion cha...

https://doi.org/10.21037/apm-19-460a
Annals of Palliative Medicine; Zhang R, Ding C et. al.

Oct 12th, 2020 - Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome (JLNS) is a subtype of congenital long QT syndrome (LQTS), which is a potentially life-threatening ion channelopathy characterized by delayed myocardial repolarization that leads to QT prolongation. Since JLNS is...

Critical repolarization gradients determine the induction of reentry-based Torsade de P...
https://doi.org/10.1016/j.hrthm.2020.09.020
Heart Rhythm; Rivaud MR, Bayer JD et. al.

Oct 8th, 2020 - Torsade de Pointes arrhythmia is a potentially lethal polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmia (pVT) in the setting of long QT syndrome. Arrhythmia susceptibility is influenced by risk factors modifying repolarization. To characterize repolarizatio...

Determination and Interpretation of the QT Interval
https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.118.033943
Circulation Vink,A.,et al

Nov 18th, 2018 - Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is associated with potentially fatal arrhythmias. Treatment is very effective, but its diagnosis may be challenging. Importantly, different methods are used to assess the QT interval, which makes its recognition difficult. ...

Long QT Detection by Watch; Novel Cardiac Devices; Time vs RVU
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/prevention/72862

May 13th, 2018 - Artificial intelligence can identify congenital Long QT Syndrome on a single lead ECG, even in patients with a normal electrocardiogram, said researchers from AliveCor -- whose KardiaBand add-on for the Apple Watch is such a device -- at the Heart...

Feb 16th, 2018 - A celebrated physician and and pioneer in sudden cardiac death research, Arthur Moss, MD, of University of Rochester Medical Center, passed away on Wednesday at age 86. His legacy is a career spanning more than 60 years that was marked by major co...

Big Data Unearths New QT-Extending Drug Interaction
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/arrhythmias/60739

Oct 12th, 2016 - Action Points Data mining millions of electronic health records led to the discovery of a new drug interaction involving ceftriaxone and lansoprazole that is assocaited with acquired long QT syndrome. Note that the study suggests that a well-contr...

Magnetic ECG Sees Faulty Fetal Heart Rhythm
https://www.medpagetoday.com/cardiology/arrhythmias/42857

Nov 12th, 2013 - Action Points Checking fetal heart rhythms with magnetocardiography may be able to diagnose long QT syndrome and allow intervention before the baby is born. Note that for some of the fetuses, information gleaned from fetal magnetocardiography that...
