ABSTRACT
The article presents report of an extremely unusual artifact that simulated inferior wall injury current on an electrocardiogram. Diaphragmatic or accessory respiratory muscle activity has been known to produce artifacts on noninvasive cardiac study and particularly during electrocardiographic recording. Unusual low-frequency electrocardiographic deflections, occurring independently of the usual waves, have been recorded before. The differential diagnosis of such a finding includes atrial dissociation and artifacts of diaphragmatic or accessory muscles of respiration.

    The gluteus medius is the main abductor of the hip and is an essential stabilizer of the hip during the stance phase of gait. Discontinuity of the hip abductor mechanism can lead to an antalgic gait, inability to maintain pelvic neutrality and increased energy cost of ambulation (Bunker et al,...
