The VAT is determined by measuring the QR interval from the beginning of the QRS complex to the peak of the R wave. 4), the descending limb of the R wave. 045 sec) in lead V6. Despite the shortcomings of the electrocardiographic markers compared to more accurate means of detection such as echocardiography, LVH by ECG has proven to be a reliable indicator of cardiovascular pathology in general. In addition to having an expectedly higher incidence of hypertension, subjects with LVH–ECG have a higher incidence of left ventricular dysfunction and an increased risk of sudden death, congestive failure, infarction and stroke.

13). In most cases, this form of bundle branch block occurs when an impulse enters the distal conduction system prematurely, before the process of bundle branch repolarization is complete. Ordinarily, the time required for repolarization shortens incrementally as cycle length shortens incrementally. Therefore when cycle length shortens abruptly, as in the case of premature atrial extrasystoles, for example, acceleration-dependent bundle branch block (aberrancy) may occur. 12 Degrees of bundle branch block.
