Abstract

Background/Aims: QT dispersion is a sign of heterogeneity of ventricular myocardial wall and is associated with cardiac mortality and morbidity. Data regarding with the persistence of QT interval changes in cases with acute pancreatitis (AP) that required clinical follow-up, are insufficient. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to evaluate the QT interval changes during attack and after remission of the disease, in cases with AP.
