Abstract

The Working Group on Electrocardiographic Diagnosis of Left Ventricular Hypertrophy, appointed by the Editor of the Journal of Electrocardiology, presents the alternative conceptual model for the ECG diagnosis of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). It is stressed that ECG is a record of electrical events, not of mechanical events and/ or anatomical characteristics. Considering the electrical characteristics of pathologically changed myocardium should lead to better understanding and improved clinical usefulness of the ECH in the clinical diagnosis of LVH.
