Example text

As these leads record from the opposite side of the heart instead of directly over the infarct, the changes of posterior infarction are reversed in these leads. The R waves increase in size, becoming broader and dominant, and are associated with ST depression and upright T waves. This contrasts with the Q waves, ST segment elevation, and T wave inversion seen in acute anterior myocardial infarction. Ischaemia of the anterior wall of the left ventricle also produces ST segment depression in leads V1 to V3, and this must be differentiated from posterior myocardial infarction.

Like capture beats, fusion beats are uncommon, and though they support a diagnosis of ventricular tachycardia, their absence does not exclude the diagnosis. QRS concordance throughout the chest leads Concordance exists when all the QRS complexes in the chest leads are either predominantly positive or predominantly negative. The presence of concordance suggests that the tachycardia has a ventricular origin. It is important to scrutinise the tracings from all 12 leads of the electrocardiogram, as P waves may be evident in some leads but not in others Capture beat Fusion beat Concordance can be either positive or negative 23 ABC of Clinical Electrocardiography Positive concordance probably indicates that the origin of the tachycardia lies on the posterior ventricular wall; the wave of depolarisation moves towards all the chest leads and produces positive complexes.

Thus it does not generally interfere with the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, though it may mask a posterior myocardial infarction. The Brugada syndrome, which is familial, occurs particularly in young men and is characterised by right bundle branch block and ST segment elevation in the right precordial leads. There is a high instance of death as a result of ventricular tachyarrhythmias Differential diagnosis of ST segment elevation ST segment elevation has numerous possible causes. It may be a variant of normal or be due to cardiac or non-cardiac disease.
