          Abstract

          The aim of this prospective study was to assess the correlation between different predischarge electrocardiographic patterns and left ventricular function, evaluated by physical examination and echocardiography, in patients with first Q wave anterior acute myocardial infarction. A positive correlation was found between the electrocardiographic pattern and wall motion score assessed by echocardiography, reflecting a gradual worsening in left ventricular function among the different patterns. Patients with an isoelectric ST segment and negative T waves had a 73% decrease in the risk of clinical heart failure compared to those who continued to have ST elevation. Thus, a predischarge electrocardiogram can be used as a simple, noninvasive method for the risk stratification of patients with acute myocardial infarction.
