From the same apical 4CH view, the diameter of the sphere that best fits the apex was measured as the apical axis (Ap).[sup][13] In healthy individuals, SI is 0.52 [+ or -] 0.06 and ACI is 0.60 [+ or -] 0.09 in diastole.[sup][14] By definition, a small value of SI or ACI implies a more conical LV, whereas values approaching 1 suggest a more spherical LV.
Since under overload ventricular epicardial activation sequence remained largely unaltered, along with the changes in local repolarization durations, aggravating the preexistent differences in the repolarization durations, the repolarization sequence under the increase of the LV afterload was similar to the baseline one with the earliest repolarization being in the posterobasal region of RV and the latest repolarization in the lateral surface and the apex of the LV. Repolarization times of intermediate magnitude occurred in the LV base and in the RV free wall.
* Management must also have a zero tolerance policy toward LV. Too often the problem is either ignored or dealt with ineffectively, which may result in the violence merely going underground or spreading to other staff.
