Similar criteria can be applied in ischaemia or reinfarction affecting a previous necrosed myocardial zone, and in BBB showing any derangement from the usual pattern. A transient T wave positive pattern in subjects that previous ECG recordings showed stable negative T waves (pseudonormalization) strongly suggests acute ischaemia.
