Overview

EKG findings in patients wit chronic PR may be non specific. However, in patients with tetrology of Fallot may show increased QRS duration with widened QRS complex. It may reflect the severity of PR and right ventricular dilation predisposing the patient to develop arrythmias. [1][2]

EKG

EKG findings in patients with pulmonary regurgitation may include the following:
