We conducted a prospective study on all patients who presented with acute inferior MI and were admitted to our Coronary Care Unit from 1 July 1997 to 31 December 1997. About 70% of patients with acute inferior MI also had involvement of right ventricle or posterior wall or both. The prognosis appeared to be worse if there was RV ± PW involvement. It may be worthwhile to perform 18- lead ECG routinely for patients with acute inferior MI.
