3). 3 Left ventricular hypertrophy. waves are usually opposite in polarity to the QRS complexes. Taken together, these ST–T wave changes are called the strain pattern, a term firmly embedded in ECG terminology despite the fact that ‘strain’ characterizes a physical, not electrical, event. In many subjects the ECG pattern of LVH will eventually progress to, or even alternate with, the pattern of left bundle branch block. Ventricular activation time (VAT) is related to the speed of impulse conduction through the bundle branches or the ventricular muscle itself.

7 CHAPTER 7 Acute pericarditis Pericarditis is an important differential diagnosis that must be made in cases of both de novo and recurrent chest pain. Acute pericarditis, usually a transitory affliction, is a frequent complication of both open heart surgery and myocardial infarction and poses a clinical problem for two reasons: it is often the cause of intense physical discomfort, and it predisposes the patient to atrial tachyarrhythmias, particularly atrial fibrillation and flutter. The pain of pericarditis can mimic angina, and like angina, can radiate, particularly to the interscapular area and base of the neck.
