Got a possible anteroseptal infarct EKG result. How often is this a wrong dx?

Got a possible anteroseptal infarct EKG result. How often is this a wrong dx?

Very often: If you have no history of heart disease, this is likely to be wrong. It's based on abnormal voltage of the R wave in lead v2 and is very often due to lead placement. If your doctor moves the leads around a little (usually going up or down a rib interspace), the infarct pattern often disappears. An echo or nuclear stress test can also rule this out. ...Read more

Mri shows lacunar infarct in left thalmus according to physician. No major symptoms. H/a, dizziness, loss of balance. Do I need to be treated for this?

Perhaps: Real question to be discerned is why do you, at age 21 have signs of a stroke? Is it old related to a childhood issue, or newer. Do you have a hematological issue such as sickle cell, or do you have a hereditary problem with homocysteine, such as mthfr. Is there a cardiac problem such as a lingering vsd, or pfo? In other words, is there a future risk? Get answers and even additional opinions. ...Read more

Safety is unknown: Herbalife has many products, and since they are not medications approved by the fda, herbalife products are probably not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are.

I had ECG last year and the findings was I have anteroseptal wall infarction. I went to my cardiologist and said it was all normal. What can this be?

Hx of WPW, ablation. Lately, HR of 120-140, palpitations off/on. EKG says "probable anteroseptal infarction, old". Should I be concerned/followup?

Hx of WPW, ablation. Lately, HR of 120-140, palpitations off/on. EKG says "probable anteroseptal infarction, old". Should I be concerned/followup?

The computer: Interpretation of anteroseptal infarction is undoubtably in error. The computer algorithm is skewed to provide an abnormal reading. The tachycardia however may suggest a recurrence of your WPW pathway. It would be very reasonable to report your symptoms and heart rates to the physician who treated you. Followup would be appropriate but not because of the EKG reading. ...Read more
