We examined whether the pattern of ST segment depression in lateral leads (I, aVL, V5, V6) in the initial electrocardiogram of patients (n = 88) with inferior wall acute myocardial infarction (ST segment elevation of > or = mm in > or = 2 inferior leads) correlates with the site of obstruction, as determined angiographically during acute hospitalization. Of the 62 patients in which the culprit artery could be determined unequivocally, in 46 the culprit artery was the right coronary artery (20… CONTINUE READING
