Article

A 50-year-old woman with a family history of ischemic heart disease and no other risk factors attended the emergency department after a 15-minute episode of oppressive pain in the center of her chest. No electrocardiographic changes suggestive of ischemia were observed and markers of myocardial damage were negative. A resting echocardiogram showed no indication of structural heart disease. Subsequently, treadmill exercise echocardiography was performed to check for ischemia. This test was conclusive, with a clinically and echocardiographically negative result, and so the presence of myocardial ischemia was ruled out beyond reasonable doubt. The Figure shows the ECG obtained at 1 minute 30 seconds of recovery.

Figure.

According to this trace, what is the most likely diagnosis?

1. Right-ventricular arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy

2. Exercise-induced atrioventricular block

3. Type 1 long QT syndrome

4. Type 2 long QT syndrome
