Brief Answer: To interpret in total clinical picture Detailed Answer: Dear friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic It is a particular pattern in EKG It may be the result of enlargement of the Left ventricular chamber / from a defect in the conduction system / at times a heart attack / very rarely, a normal variant / and so on…. The significance cannot be predicted by itself / it needs to be correlated with the total clinical picture One needs further investigations – like ECHOcardiography, enzyme studies and so on – depending on the clinical situation Take care Wishing all well God bless
