Among 1707 patients with 6-week-old myocardial infarction there were 2 cases with isolated right ventricle infarction. Diagnosis based on pathologic Q waves in right precordial chest wall leads, radionuclide and echocardiographic observations. In one case, diagnosis was supported by coronary angiography, too.
