Anterior St Elevation Mi
Meaning of st elevation in anterior leads. Old septal myocardial infarct to be ruled out. Sinus rhythm.
Myocardial : Injury vs benign repolarization vs pericarditis.Get a more detailed answer ›
St elevations refers to a finding on an electrocardiogram, wherein the trace in the st segment is abnormally high above the isoelectric line. Ekg st segment elevation is usually attributed to impending infarction, but can also be due to pericarditis or vasospastic (variant) angina and early repolarization. In some healthy young adults, a form of st ...Read more
EKG came back High Risk Operation.ST Elevation, consider early repolarization, pericarditis or injury. ST&T wave abnormal consider anterior ischemia?
Need further workup: Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more
Can you, please, explain why is it, that st elevation in lead iii greater than the one in lead ii is suggestive of MI?
Ecg: Very slight ST elevation is likely nothing to be concerned about in and of itself. The waves on an ecg need to be interpreted in light of clinical situations as there are multiple possible reasons for most variations from absolutely normal on these tracings. In a 19y/o minimal ST elevation is highly unlikely to represent an MI unless associated with specific symptoms. ...Read more
The interpretation of my ECG result said :
junctional rhythm, rightward axis, st elevation, consider inferolateral injury or infaret, acute mi.?
EKG : I would not go by the computer interpretation of any ekg, it is better to ask the physician ordering it for the interpretation. ...Read more
Why would someone with the minimal mild CAD. Complained of extreme fatigue on minor activities have an EKG was at first abnormal then repeated showed ST elevation MI acute. Then repeat borderline EKG.
I am 43 yo had back then sternal pain and told by all i had 2mm st elevation on multiple leads. Cxr, ct, enzymes then angiogram normal. Was it an mi?
Could be: Could be pericarditis also. Hope the follow up ekg is 'normal'. ...Read more
ECG 12 leads: Normal sinus rhythm,Possible Left atrial enlargement,Inferior infarct,ACUTE MI / STEMI, Abnormal ECG
When compared with ECG of 30-MAR-2015 ST elevation now present in Inferior leads. BUT troponins are ok. Is it heart attack?
Refers to EKG change: Refers to changes seen on the EKG of a person suffering a "transmural" heart attack. I.E., in cases where a coronary artery becomes suddently completely occluded by a clot, cutting off blood flow to the entire thickness of the heart muscle in the wall supplied by the artery, a portion of the EKG called the "st segment" rises substantially. This is the basis of immediate diagnosis of a heart attack. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is a rSr' pattern in V1 and V2 with no mention of ST elevation possible indicative of Brugada syndrome?
ST elevation...: Many believe that an st elevation myocardial infarction means that it is a transmural infarct (involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). Some people refer to nstemi (non st elevation myocardial infarction) as non-transmural infarct (not involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). These definitions are somewhat debatable but thought you may be interested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
T waves: T waves are very variable. Likely you have no reason to worry. There can be some specific T wave abnormalities but they are uncommon. ...Read more
I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?
EKG: Ekg by itself doesn't mean anything. It has to be matched with the clinical picture. For example hear attack symptoms with st elevation can be active heart attack. Minimal st elevation without any symptoms could be something called j point elevation. Low voltage most of the time are normal but rarely could be seen in fluid around the heart. ...Read more
