Pediheart Podcast #150: Exercise Training Effects On Repolarization Abnormalities Mimicking LQTS

This week in a co-branded episode with the SADS Foundation (SADS.ORG), we speak with Professor Peter Schwartz of University of Pavia about a recent work he authored on the topic of changes in repolarization amongst well trained athletes. Can athletic training masquerade as LQTS causing prolongation and/or abnormalities in the QT interval? How can these patients be properly identified and not 'lumped' into the LQTS 'pile'? This is a very important work by one of the foremost authorities on the planet on LQTS and Professor Schwartz also shares with us how he became interested in this topic 50+ years ago as well as some pearls for clinical investigators at the start of their careers. One of the best and most inspirational interviews of the entire 150 episode series! doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.120.048916
