Abstract

Background: The development of malignant ventricular arrhythmias due to abnormal cardiac repolarization is a major complication after coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG). Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is linked to prolonged cardiac repolarization in non-surgical patients. This study evaluates cardiac repolarization in patients with and without SDB who underwent CABG. Methods: 100 ...
