Abstract

Owing to the rapid development of new electrophysiologic techniques, our understanding of arrhythmias and their underlying mechanisms has reached unprecedented levels. In some cases, baseline ECG alterations can be identified before arrhythmia development; early recognition of these alterations is of utmost importance to start appropriate preventive therapies and stratify the risk according to patients’ outcomes. Hereby, we report a systematic revision of main baseline ECG abnormalities and their implications on clinical outcomes.
