T wave changes and postinfarction angina pectoris predictive of recurrent myocardial infarction.

Abstract

The predictive value of angina pectoris and T wave changes was studied prospectively in 177 consecutive cases with acute myocardial infarction. A total of 21 reinfarctions developed within three months. In 11 of them (52%) at least one electrocardiogram recorded while in hospital showed a steeply ascending limb of the negative T wave, compared with 20 (13… (More)
