Sgarbossa’s criteria are a set of electrocardiographic findings generally used to identify myocardial infarction also called acute myocardial infarction or a “heart attack” in the presence of a left bundle branch block LBBB or a ventricular paced rhythm.

Annals of Emergency Medicine.

The presence of left bundle-branch block on the electrocardiogram may conceal the changes of acute myocardial infarction, which can delay both its recognition and treatment.

Asynchronous learning FOAMed evangelist. Therefore a positive score should be acted upon, but a lower score can not by itself rule out MI – maintain a high index of suspicion if the presentation is consistent with MI.

To save favorites, you must log in. A scoring system, now commonly called Sgarbossa criteria, was developed from the coefficients assigned by a logistic model for each independent criterion, on a scale of 0 to 5. Comment in N Engl J Med.

The base-line electrocardiograms of patients enrolled in the GUSTO-1 Global Utilization of Streptokinase and Tissue Plasminogen Activator for Occluded Coronary Arteries trial criyerios had left bundle-branch block and acute myocardial infarction confirmed by enzyme studies were blindly compared with the electrocardiograms of control patients who had chronic coronary artery disease and left bundle-branch block.

Electrocardiographic diagnosis of evolving acute criterioe infarction in the presence of left bundle-branch block. As discussed in this article by Stephen Smithmodified Sgarbossa criteria have been created to improve diagnostic accuracy. American Journal of Cardiology. Are the Sgarbossa Criteria ready for prime time?

Formula Addition of the assigned points. Calc Function Calcs that help predict probability of a disease Diagnosis. We tested electrocardiographic criteria for the diagnosis of acute infarction in the presence of left bundle-branch block. The use of these criteria, which are based on simple ST-segment changes, may help identify patients with acute myocardial infarction, who can then receive appropriate treatment.
