Dilated cardiomyopathy is associated with an increase in transverse plane QRS voltage but a decrease in frontal plane QRS voltage. To study this paradoxical relationship further, electrocardiograms (ECGs) were retrospectively analyzed from five groups of men. Frontal plane QRS voltage was computed as the sum of peak-to-trough QRS amplitudes in the two limb… CONTINUE READING
