Persistent T-wave inversions during the chronic stage of Q-wave myocardial infarction (MI) indicate the presence of a transmural infarction with a fibrotic layer pathologically. The aim of the present study was to examine the relation between left ventricular (LV) damage and changes in polarity of the T waves from the acute to chronic phase in patients with Q-wave anterior wall MI. We studied 140 patients with persistent T-wave inversions in leads with Q waves (negative T-wave group) and 158… CONTINUE READING
