To elucidate the mechanism of electrocardiographic changes due to right ventricular pressure overload, serial changes on body surface maps recorded in two children with valvular pulmonary stenosis before and after successful reduction of right ventricular pressure by balloon valvuloplasty (BVP) were studied. Body surface maps and 12-lead electrocardiograms were simultaneously recorded before and 1-1.5 hours, 8 hours, and 5 days after BVP. Before BVP, QRST isointegral maps showed either two maxima or an expanded single maximum on the right anterior chest. These abnormal characteristics become normal or near normal 1-1.5 hours after BVP. Electrocardiographic waveforms and QRS and ST-T isointegral maps showed minimal changes. Changes in QRST isointegral maps were observed near the center of the midanterior chest. These results suggest that increased right ventricular pressure caused a primary repolarization abnormality in the mid-anterior chest that was easily detected by body surface QRST isointegral maps.
