[Transient appearance of asynergy on the echocardiogram and electrocardiographic changes simulating acute myocardial infarction following non-cardiac surgery].

Abstract

Two-dimensional echocardiography (2-D echo) was performed for six postoperative patients who had acute myocardial infarction (AMI)-like electrocardiographic (ECG) changes. All but one, who had coronary T waves, demonstrated abnormal Q waves in V1-V4, decreased amplitude of R waves, and low voltage in limb leads. ST elevation was also observed. Abnormal Q… (More)
