Role of dysplastic features in evaluation of qt interval disorder in patients with small heart anomalies

[Original research] [Internal diseases]
Alexandr Yagoda; Yana Grigoryan; Lubov Gladkih;

To assess relation of dysplastic syndromes and phenotypes to pathological QT interval in patients with small heart anomalies, 128 patients aged between 18–35 years were examined. High frequency of QT interval duration disorder (38.3 %) without any clinical manifestations was found. QT interval duration disorders were associated with myxomatous mitral valve prolapse, marfanoid habitus and benign joints hypermobility.
