Wellensâ€™ syndrome: a case report with atypical features
Wellensâ€™ syndrome is a pattern of electrocardiographic T-wave changes seen in the precordial leads in patients with unstable angina. Two different patterns have been described. Type A presents with biphasic T-waves in V2-V3 and type B presents with symmetrical deep T-wave inversions in V2-V3. The etiology is related to a critical stenosis in the proximal left anterior descending artery (LAD). We describe a patient who presented at our emergency department with intermittent chest pain and showing Wellensâ€™ pattern T-wave inversions in the precordial leads of the electrocardiogram. She was found to have 95% stenosis in mid LAD.
