To obtain information on normal left ventricular activation, endocardial recordings with an electrode catheter were made a seven left ventricular sites in ten patients undergoing diagnostic heart catheterization. All the patients had: 1) sinus rhythm; 2) normal duration and shape of the QRS complex of left chest leads; 3) normal left ventriculography, i.e. normal volume and contractility of the left ventricle. The earliest left ventricular endocardial activation was recorded at septal and/or… CONTINUE READING
