Johanne Neill, Colum Owens, Mark Harbinson, Jennifer Adgey
BACKGROUND: Many patients with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) may have posterior STEMI, which should be emergently treated with reperfusion strategies but is difficult to identify by 12-lead ECG. OBJECTIVES: To compare the initial ECG and body surface map (BSM) for the diagnosis of posterior MI as verified by single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and cTroponin T. METHODS: Patients with chest pain greater than 20 min at rest with either ST depression of at least 0...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated how pathologic Q waves or equivalents predict location, size and transmural extent of myocardial infarction (MI). METHODS: MI characteristics, detected by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, were compared with 12-lead electrocardiogram in 79 patients with previous first MI. RESULTS: Q waves involved only the anterior leads (V1-V4) in 13 patients: in all patients MI involved the anterior and anteroseptal walls and apex; 81% of scar tissue was within these regions...

Q-wave myocardial infarction (MI) location is generally based on a pathologic correlation first proposed >50 years ago. Despite the proved reliability of contrast-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CE-CMR) imaging to detect and locate infarcted areas, no global study has been conducted with the aim of correlating the electrocardiographic (ECG) patterns of Q-wave MI with infarct location. We studied this correlation in 51 patients with ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome who presented with Q waves or equivalents during MI...

OBJECTIVES: To study the relevance of the ECG changes in the reciprocal leads in patients with acute anterior and inferior wall myocardial infarction, with regard to culprit artery localization and left ventricular (LV) function. METHODS: Three hundred patients of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) (180 anterior, 120 inferior) aged between 30-90 years (mean age - 60 yrs; M:F - 220:80) were studied with regard to the reciprocal lead changes which were correlated with the culprit coronary artery and LV function...

We performed twelve lead electrocardiograms(ECG) and right precordial leads on twenty-two consecutive patients with first inferior wall acute myocardial infarction (MI) diagnosed by classical Q waves and elevation of cardiac enzymes. The presence of right ventricular MI was established by either technetium 99 (TC-99) pyrophosphate scanning or 2-dimensional (2-D) echocardiography by observers unrelated to the study and not aware of the electrocardiographic findings. In patients with established right ventricular MI (n = 15/22), ST segment elevation > or = 0...

BACKGROUND: ST-T changes on 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) in patients with unstable angina (UA) have limited values for prediction of subsequent acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The aim of the present study is to obtain more useful ECG signs during UA in predicting the risk and the site of AMI. METHODS: ECGs were recorded from 238 consecutive patients with UA; 149 developed AMI, whereas 89 did not in the following 60 days after the UA episodes. P, ST-T and U wave changes in these AMI and non-AMI patients were analyzed retrospectively...

Therapies aimed at salvaging jeopardized myocardium in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI) are now routine. The success of these therapies must often be estimated by non-invasive tests, such as the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) or two-dimensional echocardiography. To monitor QRS changes and left ventricular (LV) function over time in patients who have received therapies aimed at myocardial salvage, it is important to know the 'spontaneous' evolution of these estimates. Consecutive MI survivors admitted in the pre-thrombolytic era with their first MI were re-studied at 4 years...

To determine the diagnostic significance for coronary artery disease of abnormally large Q waves in leads I, aVL, V5 and V6--the "lateral" electrocardiographic leads--the electrocardiograms of 240 patients who had undergone cardiac catheterization were studied. First, the electrocardiograms of 99 subjects proved normal by cardiac catheterization (group 1) were studied to determine the values of the durations of Q waves in leads I, aVL, V5 and V6 that should be exceeded to be considered abnormal. These values were 30, 30, 20 and 25 ms, respectively...

The diagnostic accuracy of the standard electrocardiogram (ECG) in apical myocardial infarction (MI) was evaluated in 112 consecutive patients with recent MI and wall-motion abnormalities limited to the left ventricular (LV) apex on two-dimensional echocardiography, performed at rest 21 to 84 days after MI. The following patterns of abnormal (greater than or equal to 30 ms) Q waves were found: anteroseptal (Q V1-V4) in 44 patients (39.3%), anterolateral (Q V1-V6 and/or I, aVL) in 22 (19.6%), inferior (Q III, aVF or II, III, aVF) in five (4...

Early EKG changes may contribute to predict the site of coronary artery occlusion during acute inferior myocardial infarction (MI). Its interpretation is relevant to therapeutic clinical decisions. We have prospectively evaluated early EKG changes of 40 consecutive patients with acute inferior MI and correlated them with the site and location of the coronary artery culprit lesion. Proximal right coronary artery occlusion was characterized by negative ST-T wave changes in leads D1 and aVL and ST segment elevation in leads D3 > D2...

A review of 6040 consecutive exercise tests yielded 106 patients without previous myocardial infarction (MI) who had exercise-induced ST elevation (greater than or equal to 0.5 mm in a 15-lead ECG system). In 46, ST elevation was correlated with left ventriculography and coronary angiography. Coronary artery disease (CAD) (greater than or equal to 70% narrowing) was detected in 40 of 46 patients: 12 patients had one-vessel disease, 13 had two-vessel disease, and 15 had three-vessel disease. Resting ventriculograms were normal in 36 of 40 patients...
