Abstract

Objective: The cardiac complications of adenotonsillar hypertrophy (ATH) have been investigated by many scientists by using supplemental diagnostic modalities such as echocardiography. But, arrhythmia analysis has not been studied adequately in patients with ATH. This study aimed at evaluating the prevalence of arrhythmias, heart rate variability (HRV) and heart rate turbulence (HRT) analyses by means of 24 h Hotter ECG monitoring in pre- and post-operative periods in children with ATH.
