Body surface isopotential maps obtained from 28 patients with old inferior wall myocardial infarction were compared with maps from 120 normal subjects. The 12 lead electrocardiogram of 8 of the 28 patients (29 percent) with inferior wall infarction was normal or showed only nondiagnostic ST-T wave abnormalities at the time the isopotential maps were obtained. In all patients with inferior wall infarction the isopotential map showed a minimum (area of negative potentials) on the inferior or… CONTINUE READING
