Pseudo-Wellens' syndrome secondary to concurrent cannabis and phencyclidine intoxication.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jun 29;2018. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Institute for Heart and Vascular Health, Einstein Medical Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Wellens' syndrome is an electrocardiographic pattern of T-wave changes associated with critical stenosis of the proximal left anterior descending artery, signifying imminent risk of an anterior-wall myocardial infarction. The Wellens' electrocardiographic pattern can also be noted in several cardiac and non-cardiac diseases. We chronicle here a unique case of a patient who presented with atypical left chest pain and dizziness for 6 hours. Read More

Wellens' syndrome: a close call.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Jun 21;2018. Epub 2018 Jun 21.

Internal Medicine, Reading Hospital and Medical Center, West Reading, Pennsylvania, USA.

We describe a case of a middle-aged man who presented to the emergency department with typical anginal chest pains and found to have new, deeply inverted T-waves on ECG consistent with Wellens' syndrome. Similar to the description by Wellens , a critical 99% stenosis of the proximal left anterior descending artery was indeed confirmed by coronary angiography and successfully treated with drug-eluting stent. It is very important that physicians recognise this ECG finding as a harbinger of a serious cardiovascular condition and the necessity for an early invasive cardiac catheterisation. Read More

Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy Presenting as Wellens' Syndrome.

Clin Pract Cases Emerg Med 2017 Aug 24;1(3):175-178. Epub 2017 May 24.

Duke LifePoint Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center, Department of Emergency Medicine, Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, also known as apical ballooning syndrome and stress cardiomyopathy, is a transient systolic and diastolic left ventricular dysfunction with a variety of cardiac wall-motion abnormalities that is increasingly being associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Wellens' syndrome is an electrocardiographic (ECG) pattern in a pain-free patient that is indicative of critical occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery requiring immediate cardiac catheterization. The authors report a case of a patient presenting with ECG findings consistent with Wellens' syndrome that was later found to have Takotsubo cardiomyopathy with angiographically normal coronary arteries on cardiac catheterization after a seizure.

Atypical bypass tracts: can they be recognized during sinus rhythm?

Europace 2018 May 16. Epub 2018 May 16.

Cardiovascular Research Institute, Cardiovascular Research Institute, 6229 HX Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Atypical bypass tracts or variants of ventricular pre-excitation are rare anatomic structures often with rate-dependent slowing in conduction, called decremental conduction. During sinus rhythm, electrocardiographic recognition of those structures may be difficult because unlike in the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome where usually overt ventricular pre-excitation is present, the electrocardiogram (ECG) often shows a subtle pre-excitation pattern because of less contribution to ventricular activation over the slow and decrementally conducting bypass. Following the structure described by Ivan Mahaim and Benatt corresponding to a fasciculoventricular pathway, several other new variants of ventricular pre-excitation were reported. Read More

Atypical Presentation of Acute Coronary Syndrome and Importance of Wellens' Syndrome.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Feb 22;19:199-202. Epub 2018 Feb 22.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nevada-Reno, School of Medicine, Reno, NV, USA.

BACKGROUND Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a common and potentially life-threatening condition encountered in emergency departments. Despite its dreaded nature, nearly one-third of ACS present without chest pain and may mislead clinicians. Additionally, Wellens' syndrome is a pre-infarction stage of significant proximal left anterior descending (LAD) artery stenosis, which can lead to extensive anterior wall myocardial infarction without timely intervention.

Cocaine-induced pseudo-Wellens' syndrome: a Wellens' phenocopy.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Dec 14;2017. Epub 2017 Dec 14.

Department of Cardiology, The Brooklyn Hospital Center-Mount Sinai- Beth Israel Hospital, New York, New York, USA.

Wellens' syndrome represents critical occlusion of the proximal left anterior descending coronary artery. Electrocardiographic changes similar to Wellens' wave are not exceptional to acute coronary occlusion and can also be seen in cardiac and non-cardiac conditions, such as left ventricular hypertrophy, persistent juvenile T wave, bundle branch blocks, cerebral haemorrhage, pulmonary oedema, pulmonary embolism, pheochromocytoma, Takotsubo syndrome, digitalis and cocaine-induced coronary vasospasm. Cocaine-induced pseudo-Wellens' syndrome should be considered as one of the differentials, since cocaine is used frequently by young adults and can cause left anterior descending coronary vasospasm mimicking Wellens' syndrome.

Cardiology 2017;137(2):100-103. Epub 2017 Feb 15.

Cardiology Department, Hospital de Santa Marta, Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Central, Lisbon, Portugal.

Wellens' syndrome is characterized by an electrocardiographic pattern of T-wave changes associated with a critical stenosis of the left anterior descending artery (LAD), which progresses to an extensive anterior myocardial infarction in the majority of cases. For this reason, its recognition and early treatment are extremely important. We report 2 cases of Wellens' syndrome: an 83-year-old male presenting with ill-characterized chest pain, biphasic T waves in V1-V3 during an asymptomatic period, negative cardiac biomarkers, and a 64% stenosis in LAD with a fractional flow reserve of 0.

Omnious T-wave inversions: Wellens' syndrome revisited.

J Community Hosp Intern Med Perspect 2016 7;6(4):32011. Epub 2016 Sep 7.

Department of Internal Medicine, Easton Hospital, Easton, PA, USA.

Wellens' syndrome is characterized by T-wave changes in electrocardiogram (EKG) during pain-free period in a patient with intermittent angina chest pain. It carries significant diagnostic and prognostic value because this syndrome represents a pre-infarction stage of coronary artery disease involving proximal left anterior descending (LAD) artery, which can subsequently lead to extensive anterior myocardial infarctions (MIs) and even death without coronary angioplasty. Therefore, it is crucial for every physician to recognize EKG features of Wellens' syndrome in order to take appropriate immediate intervention to reduce mortality and morbidity for MI. Read More

Posterior reperfusion T-waves: Wellens' syndrome of the posterior wall.

Emerg Med J 2017 Feb 29;34(2):119-123. Epub 2016 Jul 29.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Hennepin County Medical Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

Background: Reperfusion after coronary occlusion (myocardial infarction, MI), as in Wellens' syndrome, is often represented on ECG as T-wave inversion in the leads overlying the affected myocardial wall(s). As an extension of this logic, reperfusion of the posterior wall should manifest on right precordial leads (which are opposite the posterior wall) as enlarged T-waves.

Objective: We sought to determine whether T-wave amplitude (TWa) in leads V2 and V3 after reperfusion in posterior MI (PMI) is greater than in patients without PMI. Read More

Successful Evaluation of Biphasic T-wave of Wellens Syndrome in the Emergency Department.

Acta Inform Med 2016 Feb 2;24(1):72-3. Epub 2016 Feb 2.

Gulhane Military Medical Academy, Department of Emergency Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Introduction: Wellens Syndrome (WS) is a condition characterized by typical changes in ECG, which are biphasic T-wave inversions (less common) or symmetric and deeply inverted T waves (including 75%) in lead V2-V3 chest derivations. WS is considered important because it has not only diagnostic value but also prognostic value.

Case Report: A 52-year-old male patient without cardiovascular disease or risk factors was admitted to the emergency department (ED) suffering with chest pain and syncope, just after having been involved in a discussion at work. Read More

Europace 2017 Jan 17;19(1):81-87. Epub 2016 Feb 17.

Heart Rhythm Management Center, UZ Brussel-VUB, Laarbeeklaan 101, 1090 Brussels, Belgium.

Aim: The aim of our study is to compare two approaches of implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) implantation, conventional (supra/subpectoral) and subcostal in young adults in terms of procedural complications and adverse events encountered during follow-up.

Methods And Results: From January 2007 to December 2013, all patients under the age of 50 years who received an ICD in our centre were included in this study. Patient's hospital records were analysed for procedural complications and adverse events during follow-up until December 2014. Read More

Recognizing Wellens' syndrome, a warning sign of critical proximal LAD artery stenosis and impending anterior myocardial infarction.

J Community Hosp Intern Med Perspect 2015 19;5(5):29384. Epub 2015 Oct 19.

Department of Internal Medicine, University of Tennessee/St Thomas Health, Nashville, TN, USA;

Wellens' syndrome, also known as LAD coronary T-wave syndrome or the 'widow maker', is a pre-infarction syndrome with non-classical ischemic ECG changes and unremarkable cardiac biomarkers. This syndrome continues to be a 'can't miss' for the clinician as delay in urgent angiography and intervention can result in anterior myocardial infarction, left ventricular dysfunction, arrhythmias, and death. We describe a case followed by a discussion of identification criteria and clinical implications. Read More
