ABSTRACT
Fifteen patients with penetrating wounds of the heart repaired surgically were studied electrocardiographically soon after operation and for some time thereafter. The initial tracings disclosed elevated ST segments which soon became inverted in 11 subjects and inverted T waves in the other 4. Fifteen patients with penetrating wounds of the heart repaired surgically were studied electrocardiographically soon after operation and for some time thereafter. The initial tracings disclosed elevated ST segments which soon became inverted in 11 subjects and inverted T waves in the other 4. Follow-up studies after intervals of from 10 months to 14 years revealed normal electrocardiograms in 7 of the group, but in the other 8 there were permanent abnormal changes. These latter alterations were definitely related to the site of injury. The probable causes of the electrocardiographic changes in penetrating wounds of the heart are discussed and it is our belief that they are due primarily to the specific injury to the myocardium itself.

    Abstract: Objective: In the electrocardiogram (ECG) the U wave follows the T, which is considered to reflect the repolarization of the cardiac ventricles. Despite the U wave''s well-known clinical relevance, a satisfactory explanation of its origin is still outstanding. We have undertaken to...
