Aims The P-wave duration (PWD) has been shown to prolong in conditions associated with elevated left ventricular end-diastolic and left atrial pressures, which also increase during transient coronary artery occlusions such as angioplasty. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of angioplasty-induced myocardial ischaemia on signal averaged PWD in patients undergoing coronary angioplasty.
