Interestingly, serial ECGs demonstrated resolution of his ST segment elevation after four hours, upon which diffuse and deep inferolateral T-wave inversion became prevalent.
Conclusion: The classical pattern of biphasic T-wave inversion on electrocardiogram was seen associated with stenosis in the proximal as well as middle part of the left anterior descending coronary artery.
QT intervals were taken from the onset of the QRS complex to the end of the T-wave, which was defined as the point T-wave returned to TP baseline (7).
