We sought to evaluate the electrophysiologic substrate for ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. When compared with controls, patients with cardiomyopathy had prolonged activation times, increased dispersion of activation and recovery, and prolonged duration of monophasic action potential recordings at 70%, but not at 90%, of repolarization.
