Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Electrocardiographic ST segment changes that mimic myocardial infarction (MI) may occur secondary to metastatic carcinoma. Presented here is a case in which symptomatology suggestive of acute MI occurred with impressive new anterior ST segment elevation in a patient with a history of laryngeal carcinoma. Clinical options in this setting are discussed, including use of thrombolytic agents and acute catheterization.
