Diagnosis of paroxysmal supraventricular arrhythmia (PSVT) in a professional cyclist: the utility of performance monitoring tools as a medical supportDiagnosi di tachicardia parossistica sopraventricolare (TPSV) in ciclista professionista: utilità degli strumenti di monitoraggio della performance come supporto medico
Purpose: To analyze the anthropometric and physiological characteristics of competitive 15- to 16-year-old young male road cyclists and scale them according to a dichotomous category of successful/unsuccessful riders.

Recent studies in Biomechanics are focused on postural optimization in cycling: among the numerous mechanical parameters the Seat Tube Angle (STA) is analyzed as the one that may influence the performance of cycling and triathlon athletes. In particular, it was conjectured that the STA may affect the biomechanical efficiency of a cyclist. The diffu...
The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of exercise training on heart rate, QT interval, and on the relation between ventricular repolarization and heart rate in men and women. A 24 h Holter recording was obtained in 80 healthy subjects (40 males) who differed for the degree of physical activity. Trained individuals showed a lower he...
