76 Possible Causes for ST Elevation in All Leads

  • Pericarditis

    This can lead to ST elevation in all leads.[en.ecgpedia.org] The preferred initial diagnostic testing is the ECG, which may demonstrate a 12-lead electrocardiogram with diffuse, non-specific, concave ("saddle-shaped"), ST-segment elevations[en.wikipedia.org] In pericarditis four stages can be distinguished on the ECG: stage I: ST elevation in all leads.[en.ecgpedia.org]

  • Acute Pericarditis

    This can lead to ST elevation in all leads.[en.ecgpedia.org] EKG Features The EKG hallmark of pericarditis is diffuse ST-segment elevation across all leads as well as PR-segment depression.[pathwaymedicine.org] All the patients in the two groups showed consistent ST-segment depression in lead aVR and absence of ST-segment elevation in lead V1.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Post-Infarction Pericarditis

    This can lead to ST elevation in all leads.[en.ecgpedia.org] ST elevation in all leads that is not inconsistent with early repol or pericarditis, especially since there is J-wave notching (in lead aVL).[hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com] Physical examination: Pericardial friction rub may be heard EKG: Concave ST elevation in all ventricular leads with accompanying PR segment depression.[forums.studentdoctor.net]

  • Pericardial Friction Rub

    […] i have no idea 4. why ST-elevation in all leads except aVR and V1? is it the same concept of what causes ST-depression in subendocardial infarction?[forums.studentdoctor.net] Note diffuse, concave upward, ST segment elevation over all epicardial leads. 37. Histologic Findings Adhesions are present between the pericardial membranes.[slideshare.net] Segment T 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[clevelandclinicmeded.com]

  • Radiation Pericarditis

    […] and T wave changes or ST segment elevation in all leads may be noted.[wikidoc.org] EKG Features The EKG hallmark of pericarditis is diffuse ST-segment elevation across all leads as well as PR-segment depression.[pathwaymedicine.org] The ST segment (long arrows) is elevated in all leads (universal elevation in contrast to the focal elevation in acute myocardial infarction), with no reciprocal change.[aafp.org]

  • Posterior Myocardial Infarction

    In all of these cases, the posterior leads revealed ST-elevation. 20/33 pts underwent coronary angiography, and all were diagnosed with LCx occlusion.[errolozdalga.com] In the 80-90% of patients with a right-dominant circulation ( Panel A in Figure-3 ) — the most typical manifestation of acute RCA occlusion is ST elevation in all 3 inferior[ecg-interpretation.blogspot.com] ST-elevation myocardial infarctions (STEMIs) (1).[emdocs.net]

  • Anterior Myocardial Infarction

    […] and acute chest pain, lack of ST-elevation in lead V1 and ST-elevation amplitude Copyright 2014 Elsevier Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Copyleft image obtained courtesy of, Shown below is an EKG showing ST elevation in the anterior precordial leads , low voltages in all the leads, poor R wave progression in[wikidoc.org] This study tried to determine the relationship between ST elevation in the right precordial lead V4 R and acute anterior STEMI.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Atrial Flutter

    Electrocardiogram revealed atrial flutter with rapid ventricular rate and ST elevation in all leads suggestive of pericarditis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Idiopathic Ventricular Fibrillation

    […] and ST elevation in the right precordial leads.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] (ST elevation in the right precordial leads) at rest and/or after pharmacological tests (ajmaline, flecainide, or procainamide).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] All rights reserved.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lateral Wall Myocardial Infarction

    In nine patients, the perfusion defect extended to the anterolateral wall: all developed ST elevation and Q waves in at least one of the "lateral" leads (I, aVL or V6) but[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ST-elevation myocardial infarctions (STEMIs) (1).[emdocs.net] A true anterior infarct doesn’t involve the septum or the lateral wall and causes abnormal Q waves or ST-segment elevation in leads V2 through V4.[americannursetoday.com]
