Electrocardiographic differentiation of the ST-segment depression of acute myocardial injury due to the left circumflex artery occlusion from that of myocardial ischemia of nonocclusive etiologies.


Lead distributions of peak ST-segment depression were compared between patients undergoing left circumflex artery percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and exercise tolerance test. Localization of peak ST-segment depression to leads V2 or V3 was 96% specific and 70% sensitive for differentiating ischemia due to occlusion of left circumflex artery… (More)
