Sgarbossa Criteria: Sensitivity and Specificity
in patients with LBBB, Sgarbossa et al proposed the following ECG criteria for acute MI:
In the HERO-2 trial, a positive ECG represented either of the first two criteria, with the last one dropped (previously they had used a scoring system).
The numbers above are from HERO-2; note that replication in a community setting gave a sensitivity of only 10% with a specificity of 100%.
37.2% sensitive, 96.6% specific
