Conclusion: Left ventricular thrombus formation is associated with anterior wall myocardial infarction and stroke.
A predictor of complications and left ventricular remodeling in reperfused anterior wall myocardial infarction. Circulation 1996; 93: 223-8.
Incidence of early left ventricular thrombus after acute anterior wall myocardial infarction in the primary coronary intervention era.
Objective: To determine the frequency and outcomes of acute left ventricular failure in patients undergoing primary PCI for ST segment elevation anterior wall myocardial infarction.
121 (60.5%) had anterior wall myocardial infarction (AWMI), 79 (39.5%) had inferior wall myocardial infarction (IWMI) out of which 56 (28%) had inferior wall MI without RV MI and 23 (11.5%) had inferior wall MI with RV MI.
Objective: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of echocardiography in left anterior descending artery occlusion proximal to first diagonal (D1) branch in acute anterior wall myocardial infarction (AWMI) by comparing it with angiography.
Determinants of left ventricular thrombus formation after primary percutaneous coronary intervention for anterior wall myocardial infarction. J Thromb Thrombolysis 2008; 25(2): 141-5.
Patients whose initial ECG's showed an anteroseptal or anterior wall myocardial infarction will be also excluded, because these infarctions may produce an anteriorly oriented ST vector which may also cause ST segment elevation in the right precordial leads.
ECG was suggestive of left anterior wall myocardial infarction which was late for streptokinase.
On 2D Echocardiography, 43 patients (63.23%) were detected to have regional wall motion abnormalities 35 of them belonging to anterior wall myocardial infarction group (81.39%).
The most common symptom with which patients presented was angina 682 (82.1%).Patients with ST segment elevated MI (STEMI) were 702 (84.6%) while anterior wall myocardial infarction was the most common STEMI site 456 (64.8%).
This contrasts with the q waves, ST segment depression and T wave inversion seen in acute anterior wall myocardial infarction. Ischemia of the anterior wall of the left ventricle also produces ST segment depression in V1 to V3, and this must be differentiated from posterior myocardial infarction.
