Early repolarization in athletes

Circ Arrhythm Electrophysiol-2016-Aagaard-e003577

This paper and statement puts early repolarization into perspective. “This is perhaps best illustrated by borrowing an example from the named authors: the risk of idiopathic VF in individuals aged <45 years is ≈3/100 000 per year.10 This risk increases to 11/100 000 when J waves are present on ECG and to 30/100 000 in individuals with the ER pattern currently associated with the highest risk (inferolateral J waves followed by a horizontal or downsloping ST segment).”
