Clinical Trial Summary

Standards Echocardiographic have been defined mainly on caucasian or Asian populations. In the EchoNoRMAL study the criteria for African populations were based solely on data from 198 subjects. This study suggests the presence of different standards depending on the ethnic origin of the subjects. The aims of this study is to describe the proportion of subjects reclassified (normal-pathological) according to the use of echocardiographic norm differences showed in TAHES population (Sub Saharian Africans) with those routinely used


Clinical Trial Description

Sub-Saharian Africans populations seem to be more vulnerable in the field of health in general and in cardiovascular pathologies in particular. - The echocardiographic standards were mainly defined for Caucasian or Asian populations (EchoNoRMAL col. 2014 and 2015). In the EchoNoRMAL study, the criteria for the African populations were based on a reduced workforce (data from 198 subjects). - This study suggests the presence of different standards depending on the ethnic origin of the subjects. The authors noted that the establishment of references according to the ethnic origin of the subjects is necessary and highlighted the need for additional study for the underrepresented groups, in particular those including subjects of African origin. The need for different ECG standards in African subjects, was confirmed in a study in the general African population (TAHES), represents 16% of immigrants in 2015 (INSEE According to reports from the health insurance funds, the migrant population, ;
