Abstract

Background: Recent studies have shown that the Tp-e interval, which on an electrocardiogram (ECG) is the interval between. the peak and the end of the T wave, can he used as an index of transmural dispersion of ventricular repolarisation (UDR). Both Tp-e/QT and Tp-e/QTc ratios have also been used in that capacity. However, these novel repolarisation indices have not previously been studied in children with acute rheumatic carditis (ARC).
