111 Possible Causes for Anterior T Wave Inversion

  • Pulmonary Embolism

    Reversal of segmental hypokinesis by coronary angioplasty in patients with unstable angina, persistent T wave inversion, and left anterior descending coronary artery stenosis[doi.org] A 12-lead EKG may show a new onset of a right bundle branch block, T-wave inversion in the anterior leads, or SQ3T3 pattern – a deep S wave in lead 1, along with a Q wave[ems1.com] Differences in negative T waves between Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and reperfused anterior acute myocardial infarction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cor Pulmonale

    BACKGROUND: The classic cardiovascular complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is cor pulmonale or right ventricular (RV) enlargement. Most studies of cor pulmonale were conducted decades ago. OBJECTIVES: This study sought to examine RV changes in contemporary COPD and emphysema using[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Cor Pulmonale

    . P pulmonale (large P wave ) in the inferior and anterior leads “ right atrial enlargement “. Right bundle branch block. Right precordial T-wave inversions. Delayed interinsicoid[slideshare.net] The most frequent electrocardiographic abnormality is the inversion of T waves in the anterior leads, especially leads V1 to V4.[tmj.ro]

  • Right Ventricular Outflow Obstruction

    BACKGROUND: Vector flow mapping (VFM) enables direct visualization of flow pattern and estimation of flow volume. The aim of this study was to determine its accuracy in the quantification of pulmonary regurgitation (PR) in congenital heart patients after repair of right ventricular (RV) outflow obstruction.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema

    We have previously demonstrated that prophylactic intake of dexamethasone improves maximal oxygen uptake (Vo(2)max) in high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) susceptible subjects 4 to 6 h after a 2-day climb to 4559 m. However, since with this ascent protocol HAPE usually develops after the first night at 4559 m[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Renal Failure

    T-wave inversions.[circ.ahajournals.org] […] hypertension, and mild chronic renal insufficiency (creatinine 1 year earlier, 1.2 mg/dL) presents to the emergency department with progressive dyspnea on exertion and new anterior[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Any time you see inferior or anterior T-wave inversions you should consider acute pulmonary embolism in your differential diagnosis.[aclsmedicaltraining.com] Simultaneous T-wave inversions in anterior and inferior leads: an uncommon sign of pulmonary embolism. J Emerg Med 2012; 43(2): 228-35. PMID: 22142671 Wood KE.[coreem.net] Sinus tachycardia is the most common ECG finding and is present 8-69% of the time, T-wave inversions in leads III and aVF are present 17-35% of the time, and T-wave inversions[aclsmedicaltraining.com]

  • Acute Coronary Syndrome

    Wellen’s syndrome is a specific pattern of ECG changes indicating a critical proximal LAD lesion – it is defined by its deep arrowhead T wave inversion in the anterior chest[geekymedics.com]

  • Anterior Myocardial Infarction

    […] and T wave inversion, suggesting evolved anterior wall myocardial infarction (AWMI).[cardiophile.org] Poor R wave progression (R wave height 3mm in V3). Abnormal Q waves and T-wave inversion in I and aVL.[lifeinthefastlane.com] -6, T inversions and pathological Q waves on admission (Figure 1).[austinpublishinggroup.com]

  • Posterior Myocardial Infarction

    Because posterior electrical activity is recorded from the anterior side of the heart, the typical injury pattern of ST elevation and Q waves becomes inverted: ST elevation[litfl.com] Wave Inversion in V2, V3 ( Wellen's Syndrome ) High risk for left anterior descending artery ischemia and Anterior Wall Myocardial Infarction VIII.[fpnotebook.com] […] becomes ST depression Q waves become R waves Terminal T-wave inversion becomes an upright T wave The progressive development of pathological R waves in posterior infarction[litfl.com]
