Use of the Electrocardiogram in Acute Myocardial Infarction for Coronary Mapping

In 80% of cases, the culprit vessel in inferior myocardial infarction (MI) is the right coronary artery. The circumflex artery is the culprit vessel in all other cases, with the rare exception of a distally extending inferoapical “wraparound” left anterior descending artery, which is suggested when there is concomitant STsegment elevation in the precordial leads.
This Picture is worth thousand of words .
