The Ratio of T to QRS Amplitudes for Distinguishing an Anterior Myocardial Infarction from a Left Ventricular Aneurysm

Specialty:

Cardiology

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

Smith used the ratio of T wave amplitudes to QRS amplitudes in anterior ECG leads to distinguish an anterior myocardial infarction from a left ventricular aneurysm. This can help to decide if the patient has a true ischemic event or a "pseudoinfarct." The author is from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis.
