Özet

Recording electrocardiograms (ECGs) by placing the right precordial leads at higher intercostal spaces (ICSs) increases the sensitivity for detecting Brugada-type ECG pattern (BTEP). Published studies unfortunately used standard lead positions for recording ECGs and underestimated the true prevalence of BTEP. Therefore, by placing right precordial leads at higher ICS, we aimed to find out the true prevalence of BTEP in our population.
