Twentyfour male patients with sustained myocardial infarction (MI) were studied with 12-lead ECG and systolic time intervals (STI) 5 months after the acute episode. From the ECGs were calculated the summed voltages of the R wave (sigma R), the Q wave (sigma Q), and the ST segment deviation (sigma ST). These ischaemic ECG variables were correlated with the STI parameters of left ventricular function: LVETI, PEP and PEP/LVET. Statistically significant regression equations relating the ECG changes to the STI variables were found in anterior MI, for sigma ST in the entire series, but not in inferior MI. Thus a simple and rapid inspection of the resting 12-lead ECG gives an indirect but reliable quantitative estimate of left ventricular function in patients with a sustained myocardial infarction.
