ABSTRACT
Focuses on the origin of the pseudoinfarction pattern in patients with idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (IHSS). Significance of the depolarization of the hypertrophied interventricular septum that causes Q waves in IHSS; Contention of the researchers that the findings in the IHSS patients is consistent with myocardial infarction; Failures of the pathological study of the heart to demonstrate transmural infarction or replacement of electrically active muscle by inflammatory tissue; Difficulties in the differentiation between IHSS and ischemic heart disease.
