Medical - Medical: Cardiology / from an examination report
English term or phrase: apex
"Heart: [...] Grade 2/6 holosystolic murmur left lower sternal border and ***apex***. S4 audible"

Any idea what that is called in German?
Thank you!

Sternalrand und Herzspitze, Apex (cordis)
Explanation:
Das "sternal" gehört nur zu "border". Mit Apex ist die Herzspitze gemeint, also ein Grad 2 holosystolisches Herzgeräusch am linken unteren Sternalrand und Apex (cordis).

Damit ist wohl eher gemeint, dass das Herzgeräusch zwischen dem linken unteren Sternalrand und der Herzspitze zu hören ist.
