Right Ventricular Hypertrophy
I. Correlation of Isolated Right Ventricular Hypertrophy at Autopsy with the Electrocardiographic Findings
The electrocardiograms of 22 cases showing isolated right ventricular hypertrophy at autopsy were examined for changes suggestive of right ventricular hypertrophy. Only 5 of 22 cases fulfilled at least one of the criteria of Sokolow and Lyon and only three could be diagnosed as having right ventricular hypertrophy by the criteria of Myers, Klein and Stofer. Factors contributing to the development of electrocardiographic changes of right ventricular hypertrophy are discussed.
