Myocardial infarction affects ventricular repolarization and/or depolarization, often producing ST elevation. Similarly, any condition that affects ventricular repolarization and/or depolarization may also produce ST elevation. Some of these conditions include:

  • Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
  • Left Bundle Branch Block
  • Ventricular Rhythms
  • Benign Early Repolarization
  • Pericarditis
  • Hemmorhagic Stroke
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Aortic Dissection
  • Brugada Syndrome
  • Hypothermia
  • Hyperkalemia
  • Coronary Vasospasm
  • Ventricular Aneurysm
