MYOCARDIAL IF 1 ARCTION Electrocardiographic effects of experimental nontransmural myocardial infarction
The anatomic features of the resulting lesions, correlated them with body surface electrocardiographic features, and developed a statistical model of the factors interacting to produce abnormal body surface Q wave patterns mean the nosology of "transmural" and "subendocardial" infarction may be appropriately replaced.

Characterization of Transmural and Subendocardial Infarction by Typing and Grading of Ischemic Lesions in Autopsied Human Hearts
The close relation between coagulation necrosis and the transmural type as well as that of coagulative myocytolysis with the subendocardial type suggests two different pathogenetic mechanisms of transmural and sub endocardial infarction.

This subset of patients with non-Q-wave infarction appears to provide a unique opportunity to modify favorably the natural history of ischemic heart disease.


A Comparison of Transmural and Nontransmural Acute Myocardial Infarction
Deciding by electrocardiographic criteria whether or not a MI is transmural or nontransmural does not make it possible to predict the outcome or pattern of complications in a patient with acute myocardial infarction.
Hemodynamic and prognostic findings in patients with transmural and nontransmural infarction.
The incidence of arrhythmias and cardiac failure, and routine hemodynamic findings except for left ventricular filling pressure were similar in those with TMI and NTMI.
In‐hospital Prognosis of Patients with First Nontransmural and Transmural Infarctions
It is shown that the peak SGOT level is more important than the type of infarction in determining the acute mortality and morbidity of first myocardial infarctions.
Correlation of electrocardiographic and pathologic findings in anteroseptal infarction.
Subendocardial infarction. Correlation of clinical, electrocardiographic, and pathologic data in 17 cases.
Because of conflicting statements in the recent literature concerning the presence or absence of QRS alterations with this specific type of infarction, autopsied cases of extensive subendocardial infarctions that had had recent electrocardiograms were reviewed.
Transmural vs nontransmural infarction.
The ventricular enlargement on the exercise thallium scan may emerge as a useful finding in identifying myocardial ischemia and how volume and ejection fraction changes with exercise are related to posture and how this relates to the physiologic mechanism resulting in R-wave changes.
