Because patients with acute left circumflex occlusion are typically characterized primarily on the standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) by ST depression, they do not qualify to receive reperfusion therapy. Documentation of a relationship between the quantities of acute ST change and final QRS estimated acute myocardial infarction (AMI) size could form the basis for clinical trials to determine the value of reperfusion therapy.
