Abstract

Right ventricular ischemic involvement during acute coronary syndromes is typically recognized associated with acute myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation in the inferior left ventricular wall. In contrast, isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction is a rare entity that mimics anterior myocardial infarction of the left ventricle, both clinically and in the electrocardiographic presentation. We report two cases of isolated right ventricle acute myocardial infarction simulating anterior wall myocardial infarction.
