Ye Seung Lee, Joong Wan Choi, Eun Ju Bae, Won Il Park, Hong Jin Lee, Phil Soo Oh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(7):263-266.   Published online July 22, 2015
Purpose

Ventricular repolarization is assessed using the QT interval corrected by the heart rate (QTc) via an electrocardiogram (ECG). Prolonged QTc is associated with an increased risk of arrhythmias and cardiac mortality. As there have been few reports regarding the effects of hyperthyroidism on ventricular repolarization, we studied the association between serum free thyroxine (free T4 [fT4]) and thyroid stimulating hormone...

Case Report
A Case of Congenital Long QT Syndrome with Reccurent Syncope
Jong Hwa Hwang, Hong Bae Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(5):725-729.   Published online May 15, 2000
Congenital long QT syndrome(LQTS) is a disease characterized by prolongation of ventricle repolarization and by the occurrence, usually during emotional or physical stress, of life-threatening arrhythmias that lead to sudden death in most symptomatic and untreated patients. Two variants have been initially identified : the original Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome of congenital deafness and autosomal recessive inheritance, and the more...
