Snapshot Case: 85 Year Old Male With Chest Pain

Snapshot cases are EKG’s where we do not have good patient follow-up or sometimes even clinical information but still feel there are worthwhile learning points to convey.

This is an old case we’ve actually featured on the blog before, but today we’re going to do so with a different focus.

This ECG is from an 85-year-old male, presumably experiencing chest pain.

01 - 85yo M

Don’t worry about the rhythm. I’m going to keep the presentation simple this time because the tracing is actually pretty particular to a specific pathology.

This patient is experiencing a STEMI. Where is the culprit lesion?

 

UPDATE: Conclusion to this case.
