Abstract
To further improve existing criteria recommended by ACC/ESC for identifying patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) from the 12-lead ECG, we have developed new criteria based on ST deviation calculated from 3 “optimal” vessel-specific leads (VSLs) derived from the 12-lead ECG. The performance of the VSLs vs. STEMI criteria was evaluated using two independent datasets of 12-lead ECGs: the Glasgow dataset included admission ECGs of 116 patients who were hospitalized for chest pain and underwent contrast-enhanced cardiac MRI that confirmed AMI in 58 patients (50%) and the Lund dataset included ECGs of 100 patients (75% males, age: mean/range 52/12-83 years) chosen to represent five subgroups with various causes of pathological ST-deviation, other than acute coronary occlusion: ventricular pre-excitation (n=12), acute pericarditis (n=26), ERS (n=14), LVH (n=26), and LBBB (n=22). Both STEMI criteria and VSLs method with and without an augmented LVH-specific derived lead were tested. Sensitivity (SE) and specificity (SP) were calculated and used as the performance measures for comparison. For the Glasgow dataset, STEMI criteria yielded SE/SP of 43/98%, whereas the VSLs improved SE/SP to 60/98%. The most significant increase in diagnostic performance appeared in patients with LCx occlusion (n=13): SE was improved from 31% to 69%. For the Lund dataset, SP test results using the STEMI and VSLs criteria were 100%/92%, 4%/88%, 29%/100%, 100%/96%, and 64%/68% for the five subgroups: pre-excitation, pericarditis, ERS, LVH, and LBBB, respectively. For the whole group, SP results were 57% for the STEMI criteria and 88% for the VSLs method. The performance improvement was statistically significant (p < 0.001). Based on these results we conclude that the new VSLs method has the potential to outperform the existing STEMI criteria in identifying patients who should receive emergent reperfusion therapy. This finding needs to be corroborated further on a larger study population.
