If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

Not quite the same: Multifocal pvcs means multiple areas in the ventricles of the heart that are firing to stimulate contraction early (premature ventricular contraction). The can be in different parts of either the right or left ventricle, or both. So, having pvcs originate in both ventricles would indeed be multifocal, not all multifocal pvcs are from both ventricles. And not all pvcs are bad! often common. ...Read more

I have an Asd with left to right shunt and an atrial septal aneurysm. Do these shunts start as right to left then as get worse become left to right?

I have an Asd with left to right shunt and an atrial septal aneurysm. Do these shunts start as right to left then as get worse become left to right?

Usually starts L-->R: At birth the left side has higher pressures than the RT side. Thus flow is mainly L-->R. If the ASD is small it may close on its own but if not tends not to cause a problem. If it is large the flow L-->R increases volume load on the Right leading to increased RT pressure, this will reverse the net flow to Rt-->Lft. If large it should be closed before development of increase RT pressures. ...Read more

Why do u feel a much stronger pulse in the left side of your chest? which artery are there? it is not the heart area im taking about...

Where in chest?: Not sure what answer you are looking for here. The heart is located in the Left chest area, so any artery in that area will have a larger sounding pulse with slightly more intensity simply because of the proximity to the beating heart. Best wishes. ...Read more

When u say that its common to have xtrabeats from atria do they usually come from the sinus or r they ectopic? If u have ectopic r they more malign?

Ectopic: We don't generally talk about "extra" beats coming from the sinus node, as those are normal sinus beats. Rather, extra beats or PACs come from an ectopic focus, but isolated PACs are generally a common and benign finding. ...Read more

Abnormal shunt left to right atrium suggestive small atrial septal defect can this make the shunt also go right to left if so is it dangerous?

Abnormal shunt left to right atrium suggestive small atrial septal defect can this make the shunt also go right to left if so is it dangerous?

If RA>LA pressure: Shunt flow will direct from the higher pressure chamber to the lower pressure one. This usually results in left to right shunting across an asd. Over time, as flow into RA is increased, a corresponding increase in pulmonary blood flow will lead to pulmonary hypertension. The subsequent rise in right sided pressures will lead to reverse shunting (r to l) with cyanosis (eisenmenger). ...Read more

The left side of my heart is smaller than the right on echo surely it should be the other way round? I have no c.myopathy but abnormal septal motion

The left side of my heart is smaller than the right on echo surely it should be the other way round? I have no c.myopathy but abnormal septal motion

PAH*, ASD: PAH has to be ruled out. Also, ASD. Some ASD's may be overlooked as the echo findings are challenging. Specifically sinus venosus and unroofed coronary sinus. Finally, it could be ARVC, but that is seen less on echo. I would order a TEE and/or cardiac MRI. If they are negative, a right heart cath can measure the pressure on the right side of your heart. *PAH -- pulmonary arterial hypertension ...Read more

RHD?: I assume you have rheumatic heart disease? At your age, if your general health is good, kidney function normal, no lung disease, your surgery should be very low risk and very successful. Be sure your teeth are in good condition before surgery or get them repaired beforehand as dental infection poses a grave risk to your new artificial valves. Best wishes to you! ...Read more

Left ribs are normal until lower 3, a large gap separate them from the higher ones & they also seem to be deeper/pushed inward. What could this be?

Left ribs are normal until lower 3, a large gap separate them from the higher ones & they also seem to be deeper/pushed inward. What could this be?

Normal rib anatomy: No worries. That's completely normal. The ribs are not all the same size. They get smaller as they go down, and the lower ones are connected to each other by cartilage, rather than being connected to the breastbone like the higher ones. The last two ribs actually "float", i.e. are not attached to anything in the front, so if you are thin, you may be able to feel the tips of them on your sides. ...Read more

The nature of your: heart rhythm cannot be determined over the internet. You need an electrocardiographic recording to define this accurately. There are many possible diagnoses. Ask your health care provider to give you a monitor to wear for a few days and see if you can record something associated with your symptoms. ...Read more
