Abstract

Endocardial catheter mapping was performed in 27 patients with anterior wall acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and in 10 patients with inferior wall AMI. All patients had a history of ventricular tachycardia. Left ventricular breakthrough occurred at 10 ± 4 ms after the QRS complex in inferior AMI and 11 ±7 ms after the QRS complex in anterior AMI. Total electrical activity recorded during sinus rhythm was 164 ± 46 ms in inferior and 144 ± 28 ms in anterior AMI (p = 0.05). Nine of the 10 patients with inferior AMI had complete activation of the anterior wall within the initial one-half of the QRS complex, compared with only 15 of the 27 patients with anterior AMI (p = 0.05). All 10 patients with inferior AMI had activation of the ventricular septum within the initial half of the QRS complex compared with only 13 of 27 with anterior AMI (p <0.005). None of the patients with inferior AMI had activation of the inferoposterior base within the initial one-half of the QRS complex, compared with 21 of 27 patients with anterior AMI (p <0.001). Complete activation of the anterior wall occurred at 33 ± 15 ms in inferior and 58 ± 30 ms in anterior AMI (p <0.005). Complete activation of the septum occurred at 38 ± 12 ms in inferior and 63 ± 28 ms in anterior AMI (p <0.005). Complete activation of the inferoposterior base occurred at 100 ± 38 ms in inferior and 50 ± 21 ms in anterior AMI (p <0.001). The latest site of endocardial activation was located at the inferoposterior base in 8 of the 10 patients with inferior AMI and was variable in those with anterior AMI.
