A 59 year-old housewife was admitted to the emergency service with a sudden onset of chest pain and nausea. Initially she was treated as an acute myocardial infarction, but conventional treatments were not effective, and she was sent to our hospital for further evaluation. Her ECG showed several abnormal findings including T-wave inversion, atrial flutter, QT-time prolongation, ST-segment depression or elevation, and frequent ventricular ectopic beats. The echocardiogram, 201thallium scintigram… CONTINUE READING

According to these phenomena , we supposed that the alpha - adrenergic receptor was involved in the development of the ST - T changes of the ECG , and the alpha - adrenergic receptor of this patient might be sensitive under excessive catecholamines , according to the inhibition of the beta - receptor by propranolol .
