Septal and left ventricular posterior wall (LVPW) thicknesses and their ratios were studied at the left ventricular outflow tract and left ventricular cavity in 66 patients with echocardiographically diagnosed left ventricular concentric hypertrophy, 20 with idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (IHSS), and 34 normal subjects. Concentric hypertrophy(More)
Forty-eight patients within 3 weeks of myocardial infarction underwent both limited treadmill graded exercise testing and coronary and left ventricular angiography. Nineteen (90%) of 21 patients with positive exercise tests (greater than or equal to 1 mm ST depression, angina, or both) had multivessel coronary artery disease. In the 27 patients with(More)
A method is presented for quantitative assessment of ECG technical quality to permit sensitive detection of performance trends of individual technicians or entire ECG laboratories. The common flaws in ECG recording technic are those which introduce ultra-low frequency artifact or baseline shift, powerline artifact, myographic and intermediate frequency(More)
The usefulness of thallium-201 (Tl-201) exercise myocardial scintigraphy in identifying patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (MVCAD) and residual jeopardized myocardium after myocardial infarction (MI) was evaluated in 32 patients 3 weeks after MI. All patients underwent 1) limited multilead submaximal treadmill testing, 2) thallium-201 (TI)(More)
Echocardiography has proven useful in determining systolic time intervals. Left ventricular mean velocity of circumferential fiber shortening has been calculated utilizing the left ventricular ejection time measured in several manners, usually from the echocardiographic aortic valve opening time or indirect carotid pulse tracing. Left ventricular ejection(More)
A newly marketed resting ECG electrode system was compared with conventional metal suction and plate electrodes, electrode cream and patient cable. Two experienced technicians were given special training in the use of the new electrode, electrolyte and patient cable system and alternated daily in using new and conventional equipment. Nearly equal numbers of(More)
