Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Changing axis deviation has been reported also during atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. Changing axis deviation has been also reported during acute myocardial infarction associated with atrial fibrillation too or at the end of atrial fibrillation during acute myocardial infarction. Left bundle branch block is usually associated with normal or left axis deviation. Rarely the ECG shows a left bundle branch block with changing QRS morphology and changing axis deviation. We present a case of a left bundle branch block with changing axis deviation in an 86-year-old Italian man admitted to the Cardiology Unit with an acute myocardial infarction. Also this case focuses attention on left bundle branch block with changing axis deviation.
