The sum of time–voltage QRS areas in the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) has outperformed other 12-lead ECG indices for detection of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). We assessed indices of time–voltage QRS and T-wave (QRST) areas from body surface potential mapping (BSPM) for detection of and quantitation of the degree of LVH. We studied 42 patients with echocardiographic LVH (LVH group) and 11 healthy controls (controls). QRST area sums were calculated from 123-lead BSPM and from the 12… CONTINUE READING
