Treatment of acute myocardial infarction has changed considerably during the last few years with the introduction of primary coronary angioplasty. In the acute phase risk stratification is largely based on simple clinical parameters, laboratory markers of myocardial injury and 12-lead electrocardiography. The electrocardiogram is of crucial importance especially during the first few hours after initiation of chest pain when important therapeutic decisions are made. Biochemical markers of myocardial injury are usually not elevated at that time point. Cases with inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction from our hospital are presented to show how anatomical interpretation of ECG recorded during chest pain helps to risk stratify patients.
