Electrocardiographic (ECG) abnormalities and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction are associated with mortality in type I and type II myotonic muscular dystrophy (MMD).1- 3 We sought to quantitate the baseline prevalence and longitudinal incidence of conduction abnormalities and LV dysfunction during intermediate-term follow-up of a cohort of patients with MMD.
