Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Vector-cardiographic abnormalities have been described in diabetics without clinical cardiopathy. Minimal myocardial fibrosis could underlie these vectorcardiographic changes and occasionally produce transient electrocardiographic alterations. To detect possible ECG abnormalities and heart rate variations during the day the authors studied 34 type 1 diabetics aged 14-54 years (duration of disease 3 months-25 years) by 24 h dynamic ECG according to Holter. Patients were in good metabolic control without cardiovascular diseases or clinical signs of neuropathy. 25 healthy subjects matched for sex and age were chosen as controls. No significant changes were found in ST segments and T waves of diabetics. 14.7% showed supraventricular ectopic beats (
