Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This article reports a new, transient, but identical electrocardiogram presentation in 2 patients at 2 different institutions. While its mechanism is uncertain, analysis by exclusion suggests that a diffusely prolonged but nonhomogenous myocardial refractoriness may have altered both QRS morphology and amplitude and also may have resulted in periods of 2:1 AV block.
