BACKGROUND The prognosis of dominant left circumflex artery (LCx) occlusion-related inferior acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients is poor, but the electrocardiographic (ECG) characteristics of this AMI entity have not been described. METHODS One hundred thirty-five patients with first dominant right coronary artery (RCA) or dominant LCx-related inferior AMI were included. The characteristics of ECG obtained on admission for 55 patients with culprit lesions proximal to the first major… CONTINUE READING
