SV3 was the sole predictor of LV enlargement. Recommendations for chamber quantification. Sudden cardiac death Asystole Pulseless electrical activity Sinoatrial arrest. We also assessed the component variables of the formula, which in the clinical routine often serve as surrogate for LVH: For all these reasons, RaVL should now be the first index used to detect LVH during the initial work-up of hypertensive patients; it should replace the very popular but useless Sokolow index, and it is our role to promote RaVL among the medical community and the medical students.

However, in the small subgroup of patients without MI, only ECG indexes including SV3 seem to have a fair diagnostic value using higher threshold than those usually described.

Left ventricular hypertrophy

RaVL is a limb voltage, well aligned with the depolarization axis of the left ventricle. A heart with left ventricular hypertrophy in short-axis view. Thus, the aims of the present study were i to compare the diagnostic performance of RaVL with other ECG indexes in particular conditions and ii to understand how the relative contributions of each ECG lead to determine LVH or LV enlargement may influence this performance.


Cornell voltage and Cornell product were overall the best indexes to diagnose LVH in these subgroups.

Accuracy of electrocardiography in diagnosis sokoloww left ventricular hypertrophy in arterial hypertension: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. The reproducibility of ECG LVH indices was assessed in a sample of 30 randomly selected patients from the entire cohort.

A transfer of the patient to a specialist is therefore usually ondice, which is associated with increased costs and waiting times for the patient.

Furthermore, anthropometric, hemodynamic blood pressure, ankle-brachial-index and heart rateelectrocardiographic and echocardiographic data were obtained in every participant. Prognostic value of a new electrocardiographic method for diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy.

For the remaining patients, CMR was used several weeks later for a stress-imaging test. The analyses used SPSS software, release Arterial hypertension is a common disease with high prevalence ibdice the general population. Various AUCs were compared using Delong test.
