Anterior STEMI












The arrow points to ST elevations in the anterior leads. These have been described as "tombstones".







 
 








 


The angiograms above show a 100 percent blockage of the left anterior descending artery (LAD) in 2 different angles.

This blockage is know as the "widow -maker".
 










 
Above, an angioplasty is performed at the area of total 
occlusion.


 
Below, normal coronary circulation is restored (reperfusion) and the heart attack is terminated. 









The ECG after angioplasty reverts back to normal.
The tombstones have disappeared.
