Background QT dispersion (defined as maximal QT interval minus minimal QT interval), as assessed using the surface EGG, has been shown to reflect regional inhomogeneities in ventricular repolarization. The aim of this study was to show the effect of coronary revascularization, by successful coronary angioplasty or stent implantation, on QT dispersion.
