Reply to Madias et al. Is the Different Frequency of T-Wave Inversion in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy and Idiopathic Ventricular Tachycardia Due to Different Frequency and Duration of Ventricular Ectopy Inducing a Different Degree of Cardiac Memory Effect? Am J Cardiol 2010;106:1522

      We appreciate the comments of Dr. Madias, who questions whether the observed difference in precordial T-wave inversion between patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) and right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia is related to cardiac memory. We agree that this is a pertinent point.
