Objective: To evaluate the inferior wall acute myocardial infarction (AIMI) infarct-related vessel the new standard ECG. METHODS: November 1999 ~ August 2001 76 patients admitted to our department AIMI patients, according to ST segment depression in leads V3 and â…¢ leads the ratio of ST-segment elevation (ST V3 / â…¢) divided into 3 groups: V3 / â…¢ 1.2. by coronary angiography (CAG) observed three groups of patients with infarct-related artery is right coronary artery (RCA) proximal, RCA distal or left circumflex artery (LCX). Results: V3 / â…¢ 1.2 infarct related artery is the LCX. Conclusion: ST V3 / â…¢ is a good position to judge the standard AIMI coronary blockage, and it can also help determine the RCA plug is located in the proximal or distal. of Wang Xiaofei (Department of Cardiology, Tianjin First Central Hospital, Tianjin, 300192); between the party (First Central Hospital of Tianjin, Tianjin, 300192); Title Clinical Cardiology 2003 19 05 English Journal Name JOURNAL OF CLINICAL CARDIOLOGY Key words Myocardial Infarction Electrocardiography CLC R542.2 coronary angiography clinical study section name 6 citations similar to the literature references cited literature similar degree in foreign language similar to similar meetings

Abstract Objective: To investigate the value of the electrocardiogram in predicting the myocardial infarct-related artery (IRA) and the location of occlusion in inferior wall acute myocardial infarction (IAMI). Methods: Ninety patients with IAMI were studied.Results: â‘ IAMI was caused by right coronary artery (RCA) occlusion in 79 (87.8%) cases, by left circumflex artery (LCX) occlusion in 11 (12.2%) cases.Concomitant right ventricular infarction (RVI) was found in 37 (41.4%) patients with IAMI . â‘¡ The location of RCA occlusion often occured at distal to the origin of the first right ventricular branch in patients with IAMI.In patients with concomitant RVI, the location of occlusion often occured at proximal to the origin of the first right ventricular branch.With LCX as infarct vessel, the location of occlusion occured at proximal in obtuse marginal branch in all patients with concomitant inferoposterior and lateral (V5, 6) wall AMI. â‘¢ ST reciprocal depression in â… , aVL identified RCA occlusion with a sensitivity of 97.5%, specificity of 93.9% in patients with IAMI, but isoelectric or elevated ST segment in lead â… , aVL identified LCX occlusion with sensitivity of 54.5%, specificity of 75.0%. ST elevation ratio â…¢ / â…¡> 1 as diagnostic index of RVI have the highest sensitivity ( 100.0%) and lower specificity (49.3%). Conclusion: Electrocardiogram have significant valve in predicting the infarct-related artery and the location of occlusion in inferior wall acute myocardial infarction.
Key words Electrocardiography; Myocardial infarction
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) early identification of myocardial infarction when the artery and its position on the assessment of the prognosis of occlusion and the need for revascularization therapy as soon as possible to take important clinical significance. However, the most simple ECG to determine whether the accuracy of the above has been made to explore the issue in recent years [1 ~ 4]. In this paper, 90 cases of patients with inferior wall AMI ECG and coronary angiography results were analyzed, designed to improve the electrocardiogram in myocardial infarction-related artery and to determine the location of the accuracy of the occlusion to provide clinical experience.
1 Materials and methods
Case Selection: From January 1990 ~ August 1997 in our hospital and have the results of coronary angiography 90 patients with inferior wall AMI, 76 males and 14 females, aged 33 to 71 years, mean age 56.9 years . All cases are in line with the World Health Organization (WHO) diagnostic criteria for AMI required. 90 cases, 56 cases were under the surveillance of coronary thrombolysis and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) patients, coronary angiography, the average time from onset of AMI <6 hours, another 34 cases of coronary angiography is 3 to 5 weeks after AMI completed.
Clinical data analysis: ECG â…¡, â…¢, aVF lead ST-segment elevation â‰¥ 1 mm patient inclusion criteria. Myocardial infarct-related artery and occlusion to determine the location of the principle are: coronary angiography showed complete occlusion of the artery of myocardial infarction related artery, if the myocardial infarct-related artery recanalization, the most narrow part of the occlusion location. In addition, the angiography showed a filling the narrow part, sign, or narrow defect contrast agent retention local characteristics such as myocardial infarction can be used to determine the location of an important artery and occlusion of reference. 1 right coronary artery to right ventricular branch of industry, issued the first one before right ventricular branch â… , para 1, after the issue of right ventricular branch to the descending branch and left ventricular after the issue before the â…¡ of collateral. Circumflex obtuse marginal branch with a large issue for the sector.

Rely on inferior wall AMI, myocardial infarction ECG to determine arterial and vascular occlusion is often more difficult position. Our results show that AMI patients with inferior wall myocardial infarction right coronary artery was 87.8%, LCX 12.2%. The posterior wall AMI patients under the circumflex artery for myocardial infarction related artery was significantly increased 46.2%. To ECG â… , aVL lead ST segment corresponds to a change of depression prompted the sensitivity of the right coronary artery occlusion was 97.5%, specificity 93.9%, specificity was significantly higher than Hasdai et al  reported that it could be used as right coronary artery for myocardial infarction related to the important electrocardiographic pattern. The â… , aVL lead ST-segment depression or no elevation was mild, suggesting circumflex artery occlusion with sensitivity and specificity were 54.5% and 75.0%, sensitivity was significantly lower than the Hasdai and other results, consider the specificity is higher, so the circumflex artery occlusion could be used as an important reference.
Vascular occlusion in determining the location of the wall under the terms of Our results show that RVI in patients with AMI do not merge when the right coronary artery to myocardial infarction related artery, the occlusion occurred at the 1st position of the right ventricular branch Kaikou beyond (73.8%), who combined their RVI occlusion occurred in position 1 before the issue of right ventricular branch (64.9%), circumflex artery for myocardial infarction related artery, the mere location of inferior wall AMI vascular occlusion beyond the obtuse marginal branch issued; inferoposterior AMI, particularly after the next lateral wall AMI, its blocking position in the obtuse marginal branch more than before the issue of the above results suggest that occlusion of obtuse marginal branch is caused by posterior wall, lateral wall AMI, the main reason.

Our results show that the traditional diagnostic criteria for right ventricular infarction [7, 9] as a reference, according to the index diagnosis of right ventricular infarction, although the sensitivity was 100.0%, but specificity was only 49.3%, significantly lower than other reports of Andersen , suggesting that only under the ST-segment elevation range â…¢> â…¡ lead specific diagnosis of right ventricular infarction is not high. This study also found that 5 patients with ST-segment elevation range â…¡> â…¢ lead, are all non-proximal edge of the circumflex artery occlusion caused by a specificity of 100.0%, sensitivity was 45.4%, the circumflex artery could be used as occlusion of the major electrocardiographic pattern.
