Abstract

Objectives: Duchenne-type muscular dystrophy (DMD) is an X-linked recessive inherited disease affecting mainly the skeletal and cardiac muscles. We aimed to seek associations between the incidence of ventricular arrhythmias and corrected QT (QTc) dispersion and its component, corrected JT (JTc) dispersion in patients with DMD.
