  • Relation of QT interval measurements to evolving automated algorithms from different manufacturers of electrocardiographs AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CARDIOLOGY Kligfield, P., Hancock, E. W., Helfenbein, E. D., Dawson, E. J., Cook, M. A., Lindauer, J. M., Zhou, S. H., Xue, J. 2006; 98 (1): 88-92

    Abstract

    QT-interval measurements have clinical importance for the electrocardiographic recognition of congenital and acquired heart disease and as markers of arrhythmogenic risk during drug therapy, but software algorithms for the automated measurement of electrocardiographic durations differ among manufacturers and evolve within manufacturers. To compare automated QT-interval measurements, simultaneous paired electrocardiograms were obtained in 218 subjects using digital recorders from the 2 major manufacturers of electrocardiographs used in the United States and analyzed by 2 currently used versions of each manufacturer's software. The 4 automated QT and QTc durations were examined by repeated-measures analysis of variance with post hoc testing. Significantly larger automated QT-interval measurements were found with the most recent software of each manufacturer (12- to 24-ms mean differences from earlier algorithms). Systematic differences in QT measurements between manufacturers were significant for the earlier algorithms (11-ms mean difference) but not for the most recent software (1.3-ms mean difference). Similar relations were found for the rate-corrected QTc, with large mean differences between earlier and later algorithms (15 to 26 ms). Although there was a <2-ms mean difference between the most recent automated QTc measurements of the 2 manufacturers, the SD of the difference was 12 ms. In conclusion, reference values for automated electrocardiographic intervals and serial QT measurements vary among electrocardiographs and analysis software. Technically based differences in automated QT and QTc measurements must be considered when these intervals are used as markers of heart disease, prognosis, or arrhythmogenic risk.

  • Comparability of 12-lead ECGs derived from EASI leads with standard 12-lead ECGs in the classification of acute myocardial ischemia and old myocardial infarction JOURNAL OF ELECTROCARDIOLOGY Rautaharju, P. M., Zhou, S. H., Hancock, E. W., Horacek, B. M., Feild, D. Q., Lindauer, J. M., Wagner, G. S., Pahlm, O., Feldman, C. L. 2002; 35: 35-39

    Abstract

    We compared 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) derived with an improved transformation matrix from EASI leads and standard 12-lead ECGs in the detection of acute myocardial ischemia and old infarction (MI). For the ischemia test, we used ECGs of 40 patients recorded prior to and at peak inflation during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty, and for old MI we used test ECGs of 382 non-MI subjects and of 472 patients with prior MI documented by enzyme findings. Two experienced ECG readers served as separate, independent standards for lead-set comparisons, and the Philips ECG analysis program also classified the ECGs. The results showed no significant differences between the two lead sets in the detection of acute inflation-induced ischemia or of old MI according to coding by the electrocardiographers or the computer program. No significant differences were found between the electrocardiographers and the lead sets for acute ischemia. Classification differences between the electrocardiographers were larger than those between the lead sets for acute and old MI and were significant for the latter (P <.001). A more detailed comparison of the lead sets suggested a possible need for modified old-MI criteria and optimization of ST classification thresholds for acute ischemic injury, specific for the EASI 12-lead ECG. We conclude that the EASI-derived 12-lead ECG deserves serious consideration as an alternative to the standard 12-lead ECG in emergency situations and for monitoring in acute-care setting.

  • Neoplastic pericardial disease. Cardiology clinics Hancock, E. W. 1990; 8 (4): 673-682

    Abstract

    The spread of metastatic cancer to the pericardium is the most common cause of cardiac tamponade in medical inpatient settings. Lung cancer, breast cancer, and the hematologic malignancies account for some three quarters of the cases. Occasionally, usually in lung cancer, the pericardial involvement is the first clinical presentation of the neoplastic disease. Differential diagnosis includes radiation pericarditis and cardiac toxicity from chemotherapeutic drugs, as well as any of the causes of pericardial disease in patients without neoplasm. Idiopathic nonneoplastic, noninflammatory pericardial effusion is surprisingly common in cancer patients. The initial cardiac tamponade may be managed with either needle tap or subxiphoid pericardiostomy. Pericardiocentesis, performed with echocardiographic guidance and followed by percutaneous catheter drainage for several days, is safe and effective in neoplastic pericardial effusion. It may be the only local therapy that is needed. Further local treatment, for those patients who develop recurrent cardiac tamponade after an initial drainage procedure, may include tetracycline sclerosis of the pericardial space, instillation of cancer chemotherapeutic agents, radiation therapy, and pericardiectomy. No controlled clinical trials of these methods of treatment are available. The choice of therapy is based on various considerations in individual patients, particularly the patient's general condition and the likelihood of a long-term response to treatment of the systemic neoplastic disease.

    Abstract

    This study described criterion-referenced tests of electrocardiograph reading skill and basic knowledge in cardiology, assessed their dependability and validity, and explored their impact on overall certification rates. Data indicated that the standard-setting processes and the two criterion-referenced tests produced dependable results both separately and together. Scores of each had the expected relationships with quality of residency training and experience with the examination. Moreover, these sections of the examination identified a small subset of examinees who failed the criterion-referenced sections but passed the norm-referenced examinations. Taken as a whole these results replicate the findings of an earlier study in terms of a criterion-referenced test of electrocardiograph reading skill and extended them to a criterion-referenced test of basic knowledge in cardiology.

  • A STANDARDIZED EXAMINATION IN THE INTERPRETATION OF ELECTROCARDIOGRAMS JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF CARDIOLOGY Hancock, E. W., Norcini, J. J., WEBSTER, G. D. 1987; 10 (4): 882-886

    Abstract

    A standardized objective examination was developed by the Cardiovascular Subspecialty Board of the American Board of Internal Medicine to assess competence in the interpretation of electrocardiograms (ECGs). The questions consisted of 12 lead ECGs with lead II and V1 rhythm strips, accompanied by brief clinical statements. Examinees chose their answers from a comprehensive list of 129 choices; the list was the same for each question. The score from the ECG examination was combined with scores from the other sections of the examination to derive a single score for the Cardiovascular Board examination using a norm-referenced method for determining the passing score. An additional trial was conducted to study the feasibility of testing for a minimal level of competence; the trial used a subset of "core" ECGs and a criterion-referenced scoring method based on a consensus of members of the Cardiovascular Board on the level of performance that should be expected of certified cardiologists. Fifty examinees (2.7%) failed the core ECG examination. If examinees had been required to pass both the core ECG examination and the remainder of the examination, 164 examinees (9%) would have changed their pass-fail status on the overall examination. The examination appeared to be a valid test for a minimal level of skill in this area of cardiology. The minimal level of competence was met by a large majority but not all of the examinees.

  • THE ETIOLOGIC SPECTRUM OF CONSTRICTIVE PERICARDITIS AMERICAN HEART JOURNAL Cameron, J., Oesterle, S. N., Baldwin, J. C., Hancock, E. W. 1987; 113 (2): 354-360

    Abstract

    Ninety-five consecutive patients with constrictive pericarditis that was documented at the time of surgery during 1970 to 1985 were reviewed. The etiologies included idiopathic (42%), postradiotherapy (31%), post-cardiac surgery (11%), postinfective (6%), connective tissue disease-related (4%), neoplastic (3%) uremic (2%), and sarcoidosis (1%). Post-cardiac surgery etiology was seen only after 1980, but constituted 29% of cases during 1980-1985. Postradiotherapy etiology occurred with equal incidence in 1980-1985 and in 1970-1980, but the interval from radiotherapy to presentation with constrictive pericarditis was longer in the more recent period (11 vs 4.75 years). Effusive constrictive pericarditis occurred in 24% overall with similar prevalence in all of the etiologic groups except the postsurgical cases, which were caused by noneffusive fibrous constrictive pericarditis in all instances. Operative mortality was 12% overall: It was lower in the idiopathic group (8%) and higher in the postradiotherapy group (21%). Thus postradiotherapy constrictive pericarditis continues to occur despite technical changes aimed at reducing its likelihood, but recent cases have a longer latent period: and postsurgical constrictive pericarditis has emerged as an important etiology.

  • ANOMALOUS ORIGIN OF LEFT CORONARY ARTERY FROM PULMONARY ARTERY - SURGICAL TREATMENT BY OSTIAL OCCLUSION THROUGH PULMONARY ARTERIOTOMY CIRCULATION FLAMM, M. D., Stinson, E. B., Hultgren, H. N., SHUMWAY, M. E., Hancock, E. W. 1968; 38 (1): 113-?

    Abstract

    Two cases of anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery are reported in asymptomatic patients 15 and 27 years of age, bringing to 30 the total number of cases of this anomaly reported in the postinfantile age group. ECG exercise tests demonstrated marked ischemic changes in both patients, but angina or abnormal shortness of breath did not develop in either patient during or after exercise. The anomalous vessel was interrupted by closure of its ostium through a pulmonary arteriotomy during cardiopulmonary bypass, a procedure felt to offer a distinct technical advantage in the surgical treatment of this condition. Following ligation of the anomalous vessel, ECG exercise tests no longer showed definitive evidence of myocardial ischemia. This is interpreted as evidence that ligation should reduce the incidence of exercise-induced sudden deaths in this anomaly.
