A 50-year-old woman with a family history of ischemic heart disease and no other risk factors attended the emergency department after a 15-minute episode of oppressive pain in the center of her chest. No electrocardiographic changes suggestive of ischemia were observed and markers of myocardial damage were negative. A resting echocardiogram showed no indication of structural heart disease. Subsequently, treadmill exercise echocardiography was performed to check for ischemia. This test was conclusive, with a clinically and echocardiographically negative result, and so the presence of myocardial ischemia was ruled out beyond reasonable doubt. The Figure shows the ECG obtained at 1minute 30seconds of recovery.
