The rule of bigeminy revisited: analysis in sudden cardiac death syndrome.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The rule of bigeminy is commonly explained by a reentrant mechanism. We hypothesize that in patients with prolonged ventricular repolarization, the rule of bigeminy may be caused by premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) due to early afterdepolarizations. We evaluated these ventricular arrhythmias over extended periods in patients with sudden cardiac death syndrome. METHODS: The electrocardiographic (ECG) characteristics of 15 recordings from the PhysioNet Sudden Cardiac Death Ho...
