Podcast # 364: Other causes of ST elevation - The Emergency Medical Minute

Author: Peter Bakes, MD

Educational Pearls:


  • Pericarditis, LBBB, LVH and left ventricular aneurysms can all present with ST elevation.
  • Ventricular aneurysm will present days after a cardiac event with ST elevation and Q waves in the affected leads.
  • Ventricular aneurysms may cause papillary muscle dysfunction with a resultant holosystolic murmur and even heart failure.
