Abstract

There has been a significant interest in recent times in discussing how to properly interpret the diagnostic value of the point J on ECG. At first sight, it might appear to be a rather simple issue, but till now no consensus in its interpretation has been reached. Volume 46 of Journal of Electrocardiology No.5, September/October 2013 is fully devoted to the above mentioned topics. A lot of publications in various journals and conference reports supply us with a great variety of concepts treating this problem.
