Bidirectional Ventricular Tachycardia: Challenges and Solutions.
Vascular Health and Risk Management; Almarzuqi A, Kimber S et. al.

Jun 15th, 2022 - Bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (BiVT) is a rare form of ventricular tachycardia that manifests on surface electrocardiogram by dual QRS morphologies alternating on a beat-to-beat basis. It was first reported in the 1920s as a complication o...

Congenital Long QT Syndrome: A Review of Genetic and Pathophysiologic Etiologies, Pheno...
Cardiology in Review; Pandit M, Finn C et. al.

May 17th, 2022 - Congenital Long QT Syndrome (CLQTS) is the most common inherited arrhythmia. The QT interval, which marks the duration of ventricular depolarization and repolarization in the myocardium, can be prolonged due to mutations in genes coding for the io...

Phenotypical variability and atypical presentations in a French cohort of Andersen-Tawi...
European Journal of Neurology; Villar-Quiles RN, Sternberg D et. al.

Apr 24th, 2022 - Andersen-Tawil syndrome (ATS) is a skeletal muscle channelopathy caused by KCNJ2 mutations, characterized by a clinical triad of periodic paralysis, cardiac arrhythmias and dysmorphism. The muscle phenotype, particularly the atypical forms with pr...

European Journal of Medical Genetics; Ünal Yüksekgönül A, Azak E et. al.

Apr 17th, 2022 - Andersen-Tawil syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant genetic or sporadic disorder characterized by periodic paralysis, ventricular arrhythmias and dysmorphic features. Ventricular arrhythmias can include frequent premature ventricular complex, pol...

Familial Periodic Paralysis

Jan 1st, 2022 - Familial periodic paralysis is a rare autosomal dominant condition with considerable variation in penetrance characterized by episodes of flaccid paralysis with loss of deep tendon reflexes and failure of muscle to respond to electrical stimulatio...

Characteristics of Andersen-Tawil Syndrome

Jan 16th, 2013 - ATS is an ion channel disorder that causes episodes of muscle weakness and potentially life-threatening heart arrhythmias for which no treatment has been identified. The majority of ATS cases are caused by a mutation in the KCNJ2 gene; other cases...

Effect of Potassium and Acetazolamide on People With Andersen-Tawil Syndrome

Jan 20th, 2012 - ATS is an ion channel disorder that causes episodes of muscle weakness and potentially life-threatening heart arrhythmias. The majority of ATS cases are caused by a mutation in the KCNJ2 gene, which is linked to potassium channels in the heart, br...
