Comparison of Electrocardiographic Criteria for the Detection of Cardiac Abnormalities in Elite Black and White Athletes
Background— Recent efforts have focused on improving the specificity of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) criteria for ECG interpretation in athletes. These criteria are derived predominantlyExpand

Reversible De Novo Left Ventricular Trabeculations in Pregnant Women: Implications for the Diagnosis of Left Ventricular Noncompaction in Low-Risk Populations
Background— Patients with heart failure and chronic anemia frequently demonstrate left ventricular (LV) trabeculations, which may be compatible with the diagnosis of LV noncompaction. We used theExpand

Increased left ventricular trabeculation in highly trained athletes: do we need more stringent criteria for the diagnosis of left ventricular non-compaction in athletes?
Objective To investigate the prevalence and significance of increased left ventricular (LV) trabeculation in highly trained athletes. Design Cross sectional echocardiographic study. Setting SportsExpand

Should axis deviation or atrial enlargement be categorised as abnormal in young athletes? The athlete's electrocardiogram: time for re-appraisal of markers of pathology.
AIMS The 2010 European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines for electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation in athletes are associated with a relatively high false positive rate and warrant modificationExpand

Cardiac adaptation to exercise in adolescent athletes of African ethnicity: an emergent elite athletic population
Background/aims Adult black athletes (BA) exhibit left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) on echocardiography and marked ECG repolarisation changes resembling those observed in hypertrophic cardiomyopathyExpand

Adult left ventricular noncompaction: reappraisal of current diagnostic imaging modalities.
Left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) cardiomyopathy is morphologically characterized by prominent myocardial trabeculations and deep recesses. The precise stage of development and the naturalExpand

Physiological Right Ventricular Adaptation in Elite Athletes of African and Afro-Caribbean Origin
Background— Regular, intensive exercise results in physiological biventricular cardiac adaptation. Ethnicity is an established determinant of left ventricular remodeling; black athletes (BAs) exhibitExpand

Clinical Differentiation Between Physiological Remodeling and Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy in Athletes With Marked Electrocardiographic Repolarization Anomalies.
BACKGROUND Physiological cardiac adaptation to regular exercise, including biventricular dilation and T-wave inversion (TWI), may create diagnostic overlap with arrhythmogenic right ventricularExpand

Outcomes of Cardiac Screening in Adolescent Soccer Players
Background Reports on the incidence and causes of sudden cardiac death among young athletes have relied largely on estimated rates of participation and varied methods of reporting. We sought toExpand
