pseudoinfarct

pseudoinfarct

A Q-wave inversion on an EKG that mimics an acute myocardial infarction, which may be seen in Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome, cardiac amyloidosis, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, due to elongation and partial stretching of cardiac nerve fibres.

Pseudoinfarct patterns on electrocardiogram mimicking myocardial infarction are seen in clinical conditions like pericarditis, myocarditis, ventricular aneurysm, takotsubo cardiomyopathy, early repolarization, and cardiac memory.
Other ECG findings include a pseudoinfarct pattern (poor R wave progression in precordial leads), intraventricular conduction delay, and atrial arrhythmias while ventricular arrhythmias are rare [26-30] (Figure 2).
The key question when assessing a patient like this is whether the Q-waves are real or a pseudoinfarct.
Other possible findings include tachycardia, pseudoinfarcts, or atrial fibrillation/flutter [7, 8].
