Report of the third International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology working group on improved electrocardiographic criteria for acute and chronic ischemic heart disease-Lund, Sweden: June 2010

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The third meeting of the International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology working group was convened in Lund, Sweden, in June 2010 to consider the key clinical challenge of developing electrocardiographic (ECG) criteria for identification of the global subendocardial ischemia that results from subtotal occlusion of either the left main coronary artery or its equivalent. The participants considered the specific abnormalities typical of global subendocardial ischemia on the presenting ECG and outlined further studies to establish the optimal quantitative ECG criteria. Subgroups on Electrocardiology, Myocardial Imaging, and Coronary Intervention met separately to establish priorities on their topic and then joined together in a final session of the entire working group. The principles for a retrospective and then a prospective study were identified, and a writing group was formed. (C) 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
