A entire assessment of the entire most recent advancements in cardiac electrophysiology, concentrating on either the scientific and experimental facets of ventricular repolarization, together with newly chanced on scientific repolarization syndromes, electrocardiographic phenomena, and their correlation with the newest advances in easy technology. The authors light up the elemental electrophysiologic, molecular, and pharmacologic mechanisms underlying ventricular repolarization, relate them to precise ailment stipulations, and consider the way forward for antiarrhythmic drug improvement in accordance with either molecular and electrophysiological houses. in addition they totally evaluate the scientific presentation and administration of particular cardiac repolarization stipulations.
