Electrocardiographic changes in early recognition of Fabry disease


Namdar, M; Steffel, J; Vidovic, M; Brunckhorst, C B; Holzmeister, J; Lüscher, T F; Jenni, R; Duru, F (2011). Electrocardiographic changes in early recognition of Fabry disease. Heart, 97(6):485-490.

Abstract

P-wave duration, PQ-interval and QRS width are shorter and repolarisation dispersion more pronounced in patients with FD compared with heart rate and age-matched controls. The significant shortening of the PQ-interval in FD occurs because of a marked shortening of the P-wave duration, which in itself demonstrated a high sensitivity and specificity for early detection and treatment of this disease.
