(LUPV to LSVC to CS was repaired)
Baseline EKG (EKG #1) is unremarkable for immediate postop.
Approx. 10 hrs later, ST segment elevation was noted in monitor. Therefore, EKG was repeated. No complaints from patient.
Next morning: EKG was improving
Is this pericarditis, developing in ~10 hrs after conclusion of surgery?
Why don't we see it in more postop. patients?Also, see posting titled "ICU - Postop. chest pain"
