    Abstract

    The 12-lead ECG has limited utility to predict the risk for sudden cardiac death in common cardiac diseases such as coronary artery disease and idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. However, it is quite useful in diagnosing less common cardiac conditions that are associated with an increased risk for sudden death.
