The 12-Lead Electrocardiogram Obtained at the Time of Initial Evaluation (Interpretation)

A 12-lead electrocardiogram demonstrating adjacent broad and narrow QRS complexes with opposite polarity representing 2 different rhythms in the same electrocardiogram (white arrows in lead II represent transplanted heart rhythm and black arrows in lead II represent left bundle branch block morphologic rhythm of the native heart). Frequent premature ventricular contractions were observed in lead V1 (gray arrow) along the wide QRS complex rhythm (transplanted heart).
