Early thrombolytic therapy does not enhance the recovery of the right ventricle in patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction
and predominant right ventricular involvement.
However, our case mimics inferior myocardial infarction
and complicating right subclavian artery occlusion and exhibits correlated symptoms and findings.
Objective: To determine the right ventricular involvement in patients with inferior myocardial infarction
by echocardiography in relation to electrocardiographic findings.
Distinguishing the right coronary artery from the left circumflex coronary artery as the infarct-related artery in patients undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention for acute inferior myocardial infarction
Impact of right ventricular involvement on mortality and morbidity in patients with inferior myocardial infarction
We describe successful coronary artery stenting in a 17-year-old teenager with Takayasu's arteritis and acute inferior myocardial infarction
due to occlusion of the right coronary artery.
DIAGNOSIS: Arm-lead reversal; normal sinus right atrial enlargement and right ventricular enlargement suggesting an ostium secundum atrial septal defect; acute inferior myocardial infarction
As for the past medical history, we mention that the patient had suffered an inferior myocardial infarction
with right ventricular lesions (July 2013), treated using PCI with positive clinical outcome following the procedure.
8232;A medical report by Al Qassimi Hospital says the Pakistani is ischaemic, which means his heart cannot get an adequate supply of blood, and suffers from inferior myocardial infarction
resulting in heart blocks.
Herein, we present a case of inferior myocardial infarction
associated with tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy complicated by acute stent thrombosis and major bleeding.
He was in profound shock with poor peripheral perfusion, a blood pressure 50/40 mmHg, an electrocardiogram suggesting inferior myocardial infarction
and a high sensitivity troponin greater than 10,000 ng/l (reference range <14 ng/l).
BACKGROUND Differentiating occlusion of the circumflex branch of the left coronary artery (also called the circumflex artery) from occlusion of the right coronary artery is often difficult because either may be associated with a pattern of acute inferior myocardial infarction
on the electrocardiogram.
