article description
Characteristic changes on electrocardiogram (ECG) along with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and regional wall motion abnormality (RWMA) detected by 2D-Echo helps in diagnosis and prognostication of myocardial infarction (MI). Hence, this study was undertaken to localize the site of infarction in acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) by ECG and correlate it with RWMA on 2D-Echo.
