Unlike the ECG changes characteristic of athlete's heart
, such ECG abnormalities are relatively uncommon (5%) and training-unrelated.
The athlete's heart
Part II Influencing factors on the athlete's heart
It is reasonable to think that usual application of the 3D with a periodical assessment of the morphology and of the function of the RV chamber in young and regularly trained athletes, can allow to find the initial and peculiar modifications of the athlete's heart
, offering the possibility to obtain a better and more adequate follow -up in case of uncertain diagnosis.
While considered to be physiologically benign, it is important to differentiate the athlete's heart
from a number of inherited cardiac pathologies, which may predispose the apparently young and healthy athlete to serious arrhythmia and the potential for SCD (12).

physiological remodelling: clinical significance, diagnostic strategies and implications for preparticipation screening.
If they exercise too vigorously for an extended period of time, they could develop athlete's heart
syndrome, or something close to it, which could lead to a dangerously widened pulse pressure.
The findings are "very surprising" and represent a departure in thought about athlete's heart
, which until now has been considered a harmless cardiac effect of athletic training, Dr.
The ECG alterations in the other 20 junior athletes "are most likely the consequence of athletic conditioning and represent another potential component of the athlete's heart
syndrome," the investigators wrote.
A 60-year-old athlete's heart
can be healthier than an inactive 20-year-old's and exercise also helps slow the effects of ageing in the heart muscle.
A 60-YEAR-OLD athlete's heart
can be healthier than an inactive 20 year -old's, according to research to be unveiled at a Liverpool conference today.
At rest, an athlete's heart
beats about 40 times a minute.
