25 cases, studied before and after P.P., showed the changes due only to elevation of the diaphragm and cardiac rotation around various axis. Q wave changes appearing in leads III and aVF, in 56% cases of the present series, appeared to be due to shifting down of auricular and transitional zones to vertricular level and their reorientation towards left leg. P.P. did not seem to produce any pathological changes in the heart.
