Abstract

Background: T-wave alternans (TWA) and electrophysiology study (EPS) are used for risk stratification for sudden death. Objective: The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of bundle branch block or intraventricular conduction delay on TWA and EPS. Methods: 386 patients with coronary artery disease, nonsustained ventricular tachycardia, and left ventricular ejection fraction ≤40% underwent TWA and EPS, and were followed for 40 ± 19 months. Results: Patients with wide QRS were more likely than narrow QRS patients to have nonnegative TWA (77% vs 63%, P
