Study group discussion: ECG sign of left ventricular aneurysm

On ECG after an MI infarction..What is the sign for left ventricular aneurysm?

It's persistent ST segment elevation. After MI, the ST segment does rise, but it falls gradually too, reaching a normal. But if its elevated then its aneurysm.

In any specific leads?

The same leads where infarction shows up.

2, 3 and AVF leads.

So basically the ST segment doesnot fall back to normal right?

Yup.

Great didn't know that concept.
