In our study ECG abnormalities like sinus bradycardia, ventricular premature contraction, T-wave inversion and left anterior hemiblock occurred in our patients who did not have any symptoms regarding cardiovascular system involvement.
The ECG was assessed for heart rate (HR), rhythm, S wave in lead I,SIQIIITIII pattern, Q wave /T wave inversion in lead III, incomplete or complete right bundle branch block (RBBB), ST-segment elevations/depressions, and T-wave inversions (TWI).
Ischemic ECG changes (i.e., new T-wave inversions, new Q waves, new LBBB, ST-segment elevations, and ST-segment depressions) were found 88% of the time.
There are many papers on differential diagnosis of ST-segment depression and T-wave inversion but only a few of these mentions that MVP could be incriminated [2-5].
ECG findings consistent with pulmonary hypertension and RV ischemia and strain, including complete and incomplete right bundle branch block (RBBB), ST-segment changes and T-wave inversions, the S1Q3T3 pattern, and non-sinus rhythm, had been observed more frequently in patients with RV pressure load (7-9).
Interestingly, serial ECGs demonstrated resolution of his ST segment elevation after four hours, upon which diffuse and deep inferolateral T-wave inversion became prevalent.
Regrettably, given that T-wave inversion is a challenging expression of either functional or structural anomalies, it should first be regarded as abnormal adaptation to exercise (chiefly LV hypertrophy), especially in adolescents.
Those who were Le(a-b-) and had either major or minor ST depression or T-wave inversion on their baseline resting ECG proved to be at an adjusted 26-fold increased risk of subsequent death due to ischemic heart disease.
Electrocardiograph showed t-wave inversion in anterior chest leads.
We found an increase in mean HR (from 65 beats/min to 85 beats/min) and ECG changes in the form of ST segment depression and T-wave inversion in leads II, III, aVF, V4-V6 [Figure 1]b.
* R-wave voltage was greater than 5 mm in V1 with ST segment depression and T-wave inversion in V1-V3.
Correcting for arm-lead reversal, one can also recognize the changes of acute inferior myocardial infarction: large Q waves, ST-segment elevation, and T-wave inversion in the inferior leads with reciprocal tall R waves, ST-segment depression, and upright T waves in true leads I and aVL.
Results: Biphasic T-wave inversion was seen most commonly in leads v2-v3 in 26 (26%) patients, and in leads v2-v4 in 25 (25%) patients.
