STUDY OBJECTIVE During inferior acute myocardial infarction (AMI), the ECG lead aVR is frequently ignored, and therefore its clinical significance remains unclear. We examined the relation between ST-segment deviation seen in lead aVR on ECGs obtained at hospital admission and myocardial reperfusion in patients who have experienced recanalized inferior AMIs. DESIGN AND SETTING Retrospective study. PATIENTS A total of 225 patients with inferior AMIs in whom Thrombolysis in Myocardial… CONTINUE READING
