Lead-Reversal ECG Simulating Myocardial Infarction A Case Report and Literature Review
Electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most important and time-tested tool for appropriate interpretation and diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) and other structural & electrical cardiac abnormalities. Erroneous misplacement of surface ECG-leads (lead reversal) may result in wrong interpretation as well as unnecessary investigations, admission to hospital and improper treatment. Early & prompt recognition of lead-reversal is imperative to avoid inappropriate & harmful therapeutic interventions to the patients. This casereport focuses on an interesting scenario of ECG-lead misplacement, which will aid in detection, exclusion and further prevention of ECG lead misplacement.
