  1. Sex Differences in Early Myocardial Repolarization
    Alan Kadish; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..It is hoped that the results of this study will improve the understanding of myocardial physiology and improve risk stratification and therapy for arrhythmias by uncovering important sex related differences. ..
