Key ResultTo the Editor: Recognition of characteristic changes in an electrocardiogram (ECG) that are associated with acute occlusion of a coronary artery guides decisions regarding immediate reperfusion therapy.1–3 Working from our primary database of percutaneous coronary interventions, which includes records of the ambulance, or admission, ECG (performed on first medical contact with the patient), the preprocedural ECG, and the coronary angiogram, we describe a new ECG pattern without ST-segment…

An emergency ECG sign of ST elevation myocardial infarction
TLDR
Recognition of this atypical electrocardiogram (ECG) pattern can ensure immediate reperfusion therapy regarding acute myocardial infarction.
[A new ECG marker of anterior acute myocardial infarction].
TLDR
Two patients are reported with proximal left anterior descending coronary occlusion but without ST-elevation, and the distinct ECG patterns were tall, with symmetrical T-waves and upsloping and digoxin-like ST-segment depression.
de winters ECG changes and anterior myocardial infarction.
TLDR
A 31-year-old male was admitted to the emergency room (ER) presenting chest tightness accompanied with nausea and vomiting and had neither significant past history of diabetes, hypertension or hyperlipidemia nor any family history of coronary artery disease.

OF ST SEGMENTS ELEVATION IN LEAD AVR : ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHIC AND ANGIOGRAPHIC FINDINGS
TLDR
A 62-year-old-female patient with no previous medical history presented with oppressive chest pain and was hemodynamically unstable during the first 72 hours; initial electrocardiogram showed ST segment elevation in aVR and V1.

TLDR
Approaches to the interpretation of the electrocardiogram in the clinical management of patients during the first 24 hours after a myocardial infarction are discussed.

ST-Segment Elevation in Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Four hundred and four patients who were admitted to the hospital with their first myocardial infarction within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms were studied and since women predominated in one group (anterior wall infarctions/ minor ST-elevation) the clinical course of the disease in men and women was studied separately.
ST-segment elevation in conditions other than acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Many conditions other than acute myocardial infarction cause elevation of ST segments on an electrocardiogram and it is important to recognize and differentiate other causes of ST-segment elevation.
Molecular Basis of Electrocardiographic ST-Segment Elevation
TLDR
The surface KATP channel blocker HMR1098 suppressed early ST elevation in WT, suggesting that the opening of sarcolemmal ATP-sensitive potassium channels underlies ST elevation during ischemia, the first to link a specific gene product with a common electrocardiographic phenomenon.
