ECG Recognition of Extent of Acute Myocardial Infarction in Ventricular Extrasystoles

Arch Intern Med. 1980;140(7):970-971. doi:10.1001/archinte.1980.00040020970019

A patient had an ECG on admission to the hospital that demonstrated acute transmural inferior and anterolateral infarction. Changes of additional transmural anteroseptal infarction were evident in ventricular extrasystoles but not in conducted sinus beats. The patient died five days after admission, and autopsy confirmed the presence of fresh anteroseptal infarction, in addition to inferolateral and right ventricular infarction.
