A fatal combination in a young lady: Long QT syndrome and coronary artery anomaly
AbstractAnomalous origin of coronary arteries is also a relatively rare congenital malformation and has been reported as the cause of angina pectoris and arrhythmia. Long QT syndrome (LQTS) is a rare inherited arrythmogenic disease characterized by susceptibility to lifethreatening arrhytmias andsudden cardiac death. We present a 36-year-old patient in whom two rare anomalies coexist and treated succesfully with ?-blocker therapy.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
