Certain Clinical States and Pathologic Changes Associated with Deeply Inverted T Waves in the Precordial Electrocardiogram
A correlation of the clinical and electrocardiographic findings was undertaken in 110 cases which had in common the presence of deeply inverted T waves in central terminal leads centered about position 3 on the precordium. The results of this study are reviewed. A summary is presented of changes encountered at the time of necropsy in nine cases in which electrocardiographic changes of similar type had been recorded. These observations are integrated with concepts derived from the dipole theory. The total evidence is viewed in relation to observations reported by other investigators.
