105 Possible Causes for Flattened T Wave, ST Elevation

  • 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.[] Electrocardiogram showed ST elevation in inferior-lateral leads.[] flatten; stage 3: symmetric T wave inversion throughout ECG; and stage 4: ECG normalization 2 .[]

  • Electrolyte Imbalance

    Clinical signs of hyperkalaemia include muscle weakness, hypotension , bradycardia and loss of cardiac output, and ECG changes may include peaked T waves and flattened P waves[] Prognostic importance of hyponatremia in acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Am J Med. 2004; 117 :242–248. [ PubMed ] 6.[] ST segment elevation in leads V1–V2. All degrees of AV block. Sinus node dysfunction and tach-brady syndrome.[]

  • 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.[] This can lead to ST elevation in all leads.[] Stage 1 – widespread STE and PR depression with reciprocal changes in aVR (occurs during the first two weeks) Stage 2 – normalisation of ST changes; generalised T wave flattening[]

  • Angina Pectoris

    An electrocardiogram revealed serious ST-segment depressions. He was diagnosed with a non-ST elevated myocardial infarction (NSTEMI).[] Non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes.

  • 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.[] Characteristics of ST elevations in STEMI ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) causes localized ST elevations , meaning that there are ST elevations in a few leads which[] waves flatten.[]

  • Cardiomyopathy due to Anthracyclines

  • Ventricular Aneurysm

    The T wave is usually diminished in height, flattened, or inverted, all findings of a past myocardial infarction (Figures 2 and 3).[] With an anterior or apical aneurysm, the persistent ST elevation is in lead V1 and V2 with associated Q waves indicating the old anterior MI.[] Here is his ED ECG: There is ST elevation in V1-V3. The Computer Read: "Anterior ST Elevation ***Acute MI*** What do you think?[]

  • Myocardial Infarction

  • Hypokalemia

    […] than the T wave. flattening of the T wave.[] ST elevation in leads V1 and V2 Widening of the QRS complex to a “sine wave” configuration.[] Hypokalemia causes sagging of the ST segment, depression of the T wave, and elevation of the U wave.[]

  • Dressler Syndrome

    (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.[] At presentation, an electrocardiogram demonstrated 1–2 mm ST elevation in leads V1–V6, I and aVL ( Box 1 ).[] Wave PR Segment 1 Hours Diffuse elevation Upright Leads aV R, V 1 : elevation All others: depression 2 Days Resolution Flattening Resolution 3 Days-weeks — Inversion — 4 Days-weeks[]
