The increasing frequency with which the diagnosis of coronary thrombosis with myocardial infarction is being made indicates that it is a relatively common disease. In the majority of cases it can be diagnosed at the bedside, but an important aid in its recognition is the electrocardiogram, since clinical and experimental investigations have shown that certain changes in the ventricular complex are associated with obstruction in a coronary artery. While these changes are a valuable aid in the diagnosis, especially of suspicious and atypical cases, they are not invariably diagnostic for they are found in electrocardiograms in other cardiac conditions.
