New vectorcardiographic criteria for diagnosing right ventricular hypertrophy in mitral stenosis: comparison with electrocardiographic criteria.

Frank-lead vectorcardiograms (VCGs) and standard 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) were analyzed to develop simple, linear, quantitative criteria for the diagnosis of right ventricular hypertrophy (RVH). The study subjects included a population with a definite RVH (84 patients with mitral stenosis proved by cardiac catheterization and pulmonary arterial… CONTINUE READING
