Anesthesia induction and intraoperative course were completely uneventful. Immediately after transfered to the recovery room, the patient revealed transient cyanosis and complained anterior chest pain with tightness after fully awakening. In the study of electrocardiogram, there were ST abnormality in II, III, AVF and then T inversion in II, III, AVL, AVF, V2-6 leads. In the simultaneous study of echocardiogram, there was hypokinetic wall movement in the distal septum area.
