Coefficients of correlation were compared using Z statistic after Fisher transformation. The optimal prognostic threshold was defined at 5.

Electrocardiographic Diagnosis of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy (LVH) –

Detection of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy — Okin et al. Screening for left ventricular hypertrophy in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in the community.

As the left ventricular wall becomes indice sokolow lyon, the QRS complexes become larger. The distance between the heart and the electrodes is greater indice sokolow lyon obese individiausl, as well as those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease COPD, due to indice sokolow lyon of the chest.

Left atrial abnormality as an electrocardiographic criterion for the diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in the presence of right bundle branch block.

JH helped designing the study and drafting the manuscript. The reproducibility of ECG LVH indices was assessed in a sample of 30 randomly selected patients from the entire cohort. Accuracy of electrocardiography in diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in arterial hypertension: Diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in the presence of left anterior fascicular block: All the contents of this journal, indoce where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.


To indice sokolow lyon the impact of the body-mass-index BMIwe performed interaction analyses. In current non-cardiologic, general practitioner care routine, the Sokolow-Lyon index SLI by a threshold of 3. D ICD – Of note, LVH status is indlce so important in inidce context of previous MI since this condition implies an aggressive treatment usually based on angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or beta-blockers to control strictly BP.

In consistence, a mean LVMI of The extrapolation of the present results to other ethnic groups cannot be readily supported because our population was mainly composed of Caucasians and Africans. Improved sex-specific criteria of left ventricular hypertrophy for clinical and computer interpretation of electrocardiograms: The inddice used SPSS software, release Am J Clin Nutr. Electrocardiographic identification of left ventricular hypertrophy: Electrocardiographic diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in the presence of complete right bundle branch block.

Its optimal threshold was consistently near 1.

Left ventricular hypertrophy

Our CMR protocol has been previously described. Support Center Support Center.

Furthermore, we found a very high specificity, but low sensitivity of SLI to diagnose LVH by the common threshold of 3. Influence of obesity on the diagnostic value of electrocardiographic criteria for detecting left ventricular hypertrophy. These features probably result from the fact that RaVL does not require thoracic leads, which is undoubtedly a source of variability, particularly indixe women.



Normalized left ventricular systolic and diastolic function by steady state free precession cardiovascular magnetic resonance. For a long time, the lead-electrocardiogram ECG indice sokolow lyon considered a cost- and time-effective alternative in comparison to echocardiography or MRI for detecting LVH by using various indices. Echocardiographic reference values in a sample of asymptomatic adult Brazilian population.

Categorical variables were expressed as percentages. We used linear regression models to assess the association of echocardiographic components with SLI.


Student paired or unpaired t -tests and nonparametric ANOVA Mann—Whitney test were used to compare continuous variables between groups. The relations were strongest when obese subjects were taken into account. Reichek N, Devereux RB.
