ACUTE MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION AFTER A NORMAL EXERCISE STRESS TEST: A CASE REPORT
A 51 year old patient developed precordial pain at rest lasting for about 30 minutes. He was taken up for exercise protocol 6 days after the episode and his treadmill test was essentially normal. Ten minutes after the exercise protocol patient developed acute onset chest pain and electrocardiogram revealed inferior wall myocardial infarction. He was successfully thrombolysed. Coronary angiography done few weeks later revealed 60-70% stenosis in the mid right coronary artery which was dilated and stented with a drug eluting stent.
