Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study was designed to detect patients with type I silent myocardial ischemia (SMI) at rest by assessing the symmetry of the electrocardiographic (ECG) T wave using the spatial velocity electrocardiogram (SVECG). In this study, the ECG T waves in patients with SMI were symmetric compared with those in normal subjects, and the the c/a ratio in the SVECG-T wave as the index of degree of symmetry of the ECG T wave enabled us to diagnose 73% of these patients; the c/a ratio in the SVECG T wave was a useful index for detecting patients with type I SMI at rest.
