Although the latter scenario may induce ST-elevations in right precordial leads, mimicking BrS, subsequent ventricular tachycardia (VT) or VF episodes occur in a subset of patients without obstructive CAD and/or with diagnosed BrS.

Exposure to CAPs (median, 285.7; range, 161.3-957.3 [micro]g/[m.sup.3]) significantly (p = 0.007) enhanced occlusion-induced peak ST-segment elevation in precordial leads [V.sub.4] (9.4 [+ or -] 1.7 vs.
The presence of ST segment elevation in the right precordial leads remains the hallmark of the condition and helps distinguish three types of BrS [3].
In addition, it meets two criteria for LVH that have been validated in patients with left anterior fascicular block: S wave in lead III + largest R+S in any single precordial lead >3.0 mV (6) and S[V.sub.1] + R[V.sub.5] + S[V.sub.5] > 2.5 mV.
(10) Finally, the ECG meets voltage criteria for LVH frequently used in patients with left anterior fascicular block: [S.sub.III] + largest R + S in any single precordial lead [greater than or equal to] 30 mm or [SV.sub.1] + [RV.sub.5] + [SV.sub.5] [greater than or equal to] 25 mm (11); and RaVL [greater than or equal to] 13 mm.

Six limb leads (I, II, III, aVR, aVL and aVF) were recorded in all animals, while in 18 dogs the precordial leads (rV2, V2, V4 and V10) were obtained as well.
