Unrecognized Non-Q-Wave Myocardial Infarction: Prevalence and Prognostic Significance in Patients with Suspected Coronary Disease

By Han W. Kim, Igor Klem, Dipan J. Shah, Edwin Wu, Sheridan N. Meyers, Michele A. Parker, Anna Lisa Crowley, Robert O. Bonow, Robert M. Judd and Raymond J. Kim


Using delayed-enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance, Han Kim and colleagues show that in patients with suspected coronary disease the prevalence of unrecognized myocardial infarction without Q-waves is more than 3-fold higher than that with Q-waves and predicts subsequent mortality
