Abstract

We present two new cases of the short QT syndrome – a 23-year-old male and his 42-year-old mother. Invasive electrophysiological study was negative in both patients. Due to polymorphic ventricular tachycardia recorded during Holter ECG monitoring, an ICD was implanted in the male patient for primary prevention. Blood samples were collected for further genetic studies. Diagnosis and management of patients with the short QT syndrome are discussed.
