Background: There have been reports demonstrating an association between increased QT dispersion and ventricular arrhythmia in a variety of pathological cardiac conditions, including left ventricular hypertrophy. However, there are limited data about an association of right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH) and corrected QT (QTc) dispersion.
