22 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, Retrosternal Chest Pain

  • Angina Pectoris

    This is the first example of angina-like chest pain which definitively resulted from a midoesophageal diverticulum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Development of retrosternal chest discomfort is the classical symptom of angina pectoris.[symptoma.com] History Most patients with angina pectoris report of retrosternal chest discomfort rather than frank pain.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    Stages 2, 3, and 4 ECG findings consist of ST-segment normalization and T wave flattening, T wave inversion, and normalization of T waves, respectively.[cfp.ca] After 90 hours of 5-fluorouracil infusion, he developed severe retrosternal chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] flatten; stage 3: symmetric T wave inversion throughout ECG; and stage 4: ECG normalization 2 .[jetem.org]

  • Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Mutations in Fibrillin 1 (FBN1) are associated with Marfan syndrome and in some instances with the MASS phenotype (myopia, mitral valve prolapse, borderline non-progressive aortic root dilatation, skeletal features, and striae). Potential confusion over diagnosis and management in patients with borderline features has[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pericarditis

    (1 to 3 weeks) Stage 3 – flattened T waves become inverted (3 to several weeks) Stage 4 – ECG returns to normal (several weeks onwards) NB.[lifeinthefastlane.com] Abstract We report a rare case of a mediastinal malignant granular cell tumor in a 41-year-old man presenting with dyspnea, retrosternal chest pain, and recurrent pericardial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms include sharp, severe retrosternal chest pain worse with inspiration and a supine position. The classic physical finding is a pericardial friction rub.[bestpractice.bmj.com]

  • Neurocirculatory Asthenia

    Such variations as transient S-T segment deviation 3, 4 and T-wave flattening or inversion 2 are among those considered to be due to neurocirculatory asthenia.[annals.org] Not infrequently, however, flattened T waves, which are normalized after the effort. On the other hand, the T waves may be high and pointed.[corhealthy.blogspot.com]

  • Unstable Angina

  • Thyrotoxic Heart Disease

  • Post-Infarction Pericarditis

    (1 to 3 weeks) Stage 3 – flattened T waves become inverted (3 to several weeks) Stage 4 – ECG returns to normal (several weeks onwards) NB.[lifeinthefastlane.com] Nevertheless, the retrosternal chest pain in acute pericarditis is very similar to that in STEMI.[ecgwaves.com] waves flatten.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis

    The ECG performed on admission showed sinus rhythm, normal PR interval, and diffuse flattened T waves.[circ.ahajournals.org]
