Özet

Objective: Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a liver disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by inflammatory liver histology, elevated transaminase level, circulating nonorgan-specific autoantibodies, and increased level of immunoglobulin G in the absence of known etiology. Ventricular repolarization has been evaluated using T wave and QT interval measurements in patients with hepatic cirrhosis. Ventricular repolarization may be defined using QT interval, QT dispersion, and T wave measurements. Recently, it has been demonstrated that peak and end of the T wave (Tp-e) interval, Tp-e/QT, and Tp-e/corrected QT interval (QTc) ratios can be novel indicators for prediction of ventricular arrhythmias and mortality. In this study, an investigation of ventricular repolarization using Tp-e interval and Tp-e/QT ratio in patients with AIH was performed.
