QRS axis deviation can occur during myocardial infarction (MI); to date, little is known about the significance of extreme right axis deviation (ERAD) in the frontal plane, i.e. a shift in QRS axis between +180° and +270°, during MI. We sought to investigate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with new-onset ERAD in the absence of complete bundle branch blocks (BBB) in the setting of acute coronary syndromes (ACS).

Abstract

QRS axis deviation can occur during myocardial infarction (MI); to date, little is known about the significance of extreme right axis deviation (ERAD) in the frontal plane, i.e. a shift in QRS axis between +180° and +270°, during MI. We sought to investigate the clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients with new-onset ERAD in the absence of complete bundle branch blocks (BBB) in the setting of acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
