Pitfalls in the Electrocardiographic Diagnosis of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
A Correlative Study of 200 Autopsied Patients
The electrocardiographic diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy is uncertain at best and is largely based on useful clues. Reliance on the presence or absence of abnormally high QRS voltage or any of the other presently accepted criteria may lead to error. The author undertook evaluation of the reliability of the various electrocardiographic criteria, of left ventricular hypertrophy in a study correlating electrocardiographic and postmortem findings.
