A formula to estimate the aproximate surface area if height and weight be known. Improved detection of echocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy using a new electrocardiographic algorithm. Furthermore, we found a very high specificity, but low sensitivity of SLI to diagnose LVH by the common threshold of 3.

Sinus bradycardia Sick sinus syndrome Heart block: InVerdecchia et al. In conclusion, the Sokolow-Lyon index is not suitable as a diagnostic screening test to identify patients at risk for LVH, in particular in non-obese subjects without eccentric LVH. Electrocardiographic criteria for diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in the presence of complete right bundle branch block.

The multivariable analyses are illustrated in Table 3.

induce We used linear regression models to assess the association of echocardiographic components with SLI. 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.


Gender differences in left ventricular growth. Of note, LVH status is not so important in the context indiice previous MI since this condition implies an aggressive treatment usually based on angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or beta-blockers to control strictly BP. Sokolow M, Lyon TP. Linear regression of echocardiographic parameters on the Sokolow-Lyon index within considered BMI categories, and respective interaction analyses.

Left ventricular hypertrophy

D ICD – A review of the role of electrocardiography in the diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy in hypertension. The precision used for calculation was 0. Relation of left ventricular mass and geometry to lyob and mortality in uncomplicated essential hypertension. Lessa I, Fonseca J. This prolongation may also be due to myocardial fibrosis which is typical in hyperotrophy. R wave in aVL lead: Personal information regarding our website’s visitors, including their identity, is confidential.

UMW helped designing the study and drafting the manuscript. This result is in accordance with a previous study, which demonstrated a good correlation between RaVL and LVH in young subjects with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Consequently, these circumstances weaken its value as a practical screening examination in the general population. Electrocardiographic detection of left ventricular hypertrophy using echocardiographic determination of left ventricular mass as the reference standard: AK helps coordinate the study, participated in the statistical analyses and helped drafting the manuscript.

The extrapolation of the present results to other ethnic groups cannot be readily supported because our population was mainly composed of Caucasians and Africans. The thickness of the left ventricle as visualized on echocardiography correlates with its actual mass.



Atrial flutter Ventricular flutter Atrial fibrillation Familial Ventricular fibrillation. Angina pectoris Prinzmetal’s angina Stable angina Acute sooolow syndrome Myocardial infarction Unstable angina. On each short-axis slice, the endocardial and epicardial contours were manually traced at end-diastole. The relations were strongest when obese subjects were taken into account.


The sum is 41 mm which is more than 35 mm and therefore LVH is present according to the Sokolow-Lyon criteria. In comparison, women had a mean SBP of A study of the human heart as a multiple dipole source. J Am Coll Cardiol. Detection of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy — Okin et al. Echocardiographic assessment of left ventricular hypertrophy: Recommendations regarding quantitation in M-Mode echocardiography: RaVL and SV3 appeared as sokoolw 2 major players in terms of prediction of cardiac remodeling with some differences.

ECG detection of left ventricular hypertrophy: Conclusions In conclusion, the Sokolow-Lyon index is not suitable as a diagnostic screening test to identify patients at risk for LVH, in particular in non-obese subjects without eccentric LVH. Occurrence, characteristics, sokoolow etiologies of underappreciated cardiac pathologies. Diagnostic value of different electrocardiographic voltage criteria for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in young people.
