BACKGROUND Non-Q wave myocardial infarction (NQMI) and unstable angina (UAP) have similar clinical presentations and similar ST-T changes on the electrocardiogram. The purpose of this study was to assess whether changes in QT interval might help differentiating between these entities. METHODS The QT intervals of 52 patients hospitalized with NQMI were compared to those of 52 patients hospitalized for UAP. All patients had repeated ECG for at least 4 days. RESULTS Maximal QTc in patients… CONTINUE READING
