ABSTRACT
Three cases are reported here in which the clinical picture was quite suggestive of acute myocardial infarction but a typical pattern did not appear in the routine electrocardiogram. Additional leads over the posterior chest were quite helpful in the early diagnosis of acute posterior myocardial infarction in these cases. The method is simple and can be used without discomfort even in the very ill patient. Its highly diagnostic value makes it preferable to other, more complicated procedures.
