Brief Answer:
No significance.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for posting your question on HealthcareMagic.

T wave inversion is significant only when present in two consecutive leads representing the same area of heart.
Lead 3 represents the anterior wall of heart while avf is for inferior wall.Change in one lead has no significance or clinical value.

Thanks.
