The problem is, not all UMIs result in Q-waves on the electrocardiogram.

Conclusion: The present results that the increase in higher frequency power in TVD with recurrent heart failure may indicate the severity of myocardial damage, regardless of significant Q-wave.
The postoperative release of cTnT reflects the actual amount of myocardial necrosis caused not only by Q-wave myocardial infarction and surgical trauma but also by smaller infarcts, which often are inapparent to the clinician.
The study reported no late thrombosis, death or Q-wave myocardial infarctions.

In addition, patients treated with the CYPHER(R) Stent suffered a Q-wave myocardial infarction (a heart attack affecting the full thickness of the heart wall) much less frequently than those receiving the Taxus Stent (0.

Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE), which are defined as death, either Q-wave or non-Q-way heart attack (myocardial infarction), emergency bypass surgery or TLR, was also lower in patients receiving the CYPHER(R) Stent compared to those receiving brachytherapy (10 percent in the CYPHER(R) Stent arm vs.
