Electrokymographic studies in aneurysm of the left ventricle

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


These cases showing paradoxical pulsation of the left ventricular contour on fluoroscopy and electrokymography have been presented. In two of these a definite ventricular aneurysm was apparent on x-ray examination. The electrokymographic criterion for a localized area of ventricular damage is the demonstration of systolic expansion or diastolic collapse.
