ECG: Stenosis of the left anterior descending artery


Patient with chest pain :

Stenosis of the left anterior descending artery


The electocardiogram reveals anterolateral T-wave inversions with biphasic lateral T waves. This finding (Wellens'’ syndrome) is associated with severe stenosis of the left anterior descending artery. Coronary angiography showed stenosis of 95% of the mid-–left anterior descending artery, which was successfully treated with a drug-eluting stent.
