Özet

Background: Electrocardiography (ECG) is frequently used in preparticipation evaluation of competitive athletes. Repolarization heterogeneities on ECG is a well-known indicator for malignant ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. We aimed to investigate the effect of iron and homocysteine levels on arrhythmogenic indicators, T peak-to-end (Tp-e) interval, and Tp-e/QT ratio in elite athletes.
