Unstable 'fluttering' predicts aortic aneurysm with 98% accuracy

Medical Xpress - Cardiology

Northwestern University researchers have developed the first physics-based metric to predict whether or not a person might someday suffer an aortic aneurysm, a deadly condition that often causes no symptoms until it ruptures.

Electrovectorcardiographic study of left ventricular aneurysm in ischemic heart disease

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine

The aim was to characterize the electrovectorcardiographic pattern of ventricular aneurysms in ischemic cardiopathy by analyzing the cardiac ventricular repolarization. The electrovectorcardiographic parameters showed high accuracy for recognizing left ventricular aneurysms in ischemic heart disease.
