abstract

  • The ability of ECG criteria to detect left ventricular hypertrophy differs depending on the method of indexing left ventricular mass for body size and with the presence or absence of obesity. Further, the Cornell product provides the best combination of overall accuracy and low variability of performance between definitions of hypertrophy. These findings have important implications for the clinical and epidemiologic use of 12-lead ECG criteria for the detection of left ventricular hypertrophy.
