  • Interatrial block, frailty, and prognosis in elderly patients with myocardial infarction. 
    by Eva Bernal, MD, Antoni Bayés-Genís, MD, PhD, Albert Ariza-Solé, MD, PhD, Francesc Formiga, MD, PhD, Maria T. Vidán, MD, PhD, Luis Alberto Escobar-Robledo, MS, Jaime Aboal, MD, Lídia Alcoberro, MD, Carme Guerrero, MD, Iván Ariza-Segovia, MD, Ana Hernández de Benito, MD, Pau Vilardell, MD, José Carlos Sánchez-Salado, MD, Victoria Lorente, MD, Antoni Bayés de Luna, MD, PhD, and Manuel Martinez-Sellés, MD, PhD
    • Highlights: Almost one of each three elderly patients with myocardial infarction in sinus rythm do not have a normal P wave on ECG.  Advanced interatrial block was associated with a trend toward more fraity, but not with the rest of geriatric syndromes. Elderly patients with MI and advanced IAB had a slightly higher mortality and new onset atrial fibrillation at one year.

  • Electrocardiographic recognition of right ventricular hypertrophy 
    by Kjell Nikus, MD, PhD, Andrés Ricardo Pérez-Riera, MD, PhDlink, Kaari Konttila, MS, and Raimundo Barbosa-Barros, MD.
    • Highlights: The ECG is a relatively insensitive tool for the detection of right ventricular hypertrophy, but some criteria have high specificity. ECG criteria are not sensitive/specific enough for screening for mild right ventricular hypertrophy in adults without clinical cardiovascular disease. The greatest accuracy of the ECG is in congenital heart disease
