Inferior wall myocardial infarction is a very interesting clinical entity. Apart from different extent of left ventricular infarction, it may present with concomitant right ventricular or atrial infarction. In addition, it is also associated with high incidence of brady- and tachy-arrhythmias. The infarct-related artery can either be the right coronary, left circumflex, or even left anterior descending artery. The short-term prognosis is greatly affected by the development of these complications. ECG is an indispensable tool for the management of this clinical condition. This review concisely illustrates the basic principles of ECG, and gives a brief summary on the diagnostic, topographic, and prognostic value of ECG on the clinical management of inferior wall myocardial infarction.
