  • PDH, BJ, RP and GO contributed equally.

  • Contributors All authors have contributed in design, execution and writing of this report. PDH made the observation that conduction velocity is increased in narrow complex cardiomyopathy and designed the study protocol. GO is the electrophysiologist who implanted the defibrillator. RP is the cardiology fellow who managed the research protocol. BJ is a cardiologist who provided insight and review. PDH is the first author who conceived the notion after losing a patient with narrow complex cardiomyopathy.
