A member asked:

My ecg result shows probable left atrial enlargement. i don't have any chest pain or difficulty breathing, just occasional palpitations. can you please tell me whether this result is concerning? heart ultrasound (july 2022) was good, no issues found?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Left atrial enlargement is much more accurately diagnosed by echocardiogram than by an EKG. At best it's a presumptive diagnosis on an EKG. If you don't have hypertension, diastolic dysfunction or valvular heart disease, you're unlikely to have an enlarged left atrium. A cardiologist can evaluate and advise you further.
