Borderline St Elevation
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
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
What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?
Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...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.
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 more
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 elevation can be normal. ...Read more
Is a rSr' pattern in V1 and V2 with no mention of ST elevation possible indicative of Brugada syndrome?
This is not a sign of Brugada Syndrome at all!
Cardioversion: Usually DC Cardioversion does not cause ST elevation if the Cardioversion is in a heart not inflamed or infarcted. Having said that, ST segment elevation could occur if the heart is injured by the current. ...Read more
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 more
Likely not: It likely is early repolarization which is a common finding on young people's ekg's. I wish I could see the ekg. ...Read more
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
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: ST elevation is a vector representation of electrical force. The lead 3 direction usually has less muscle mass than the lead 2 direction. There is no firm rule however only a suggestion because of anatomical variations. ...Read more
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
On few egcs showed st elevation and early repolarization - im suffering from chest pain over a month- last troponin was ok- what's the cause?
Find a MCG test!: Here is the link! Http://en. M.Wikipedia. Org/wiki/multifunction_cardiogram other causes may be sought! ...Read more
I was told my son's EKG has a slight st elevation with repolarization. He is 11 years old an an extremely active athlete. Should he stop hockey?
Probably not: It sounds like you're referring to normal variant ekg finding, common in young males, called "early repolarization." there's no evidence firmly linking this with future cardiac risk. If your son has had absolutely no symptoms with sports (i assume not), may not need anything more. If any concern, or ekg not convincingly benign to the doctor, an echo will rule-out structural heart disease. ...Read more
ECG: Both mvp and early repolarization are quite common. It would take a lot of data acquisition to prove that they were associated and I don't think it will be done soon. You see both independently so often that I doubt there is an association. ...Read more
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 ›
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
STEMI: Most recent thing I've seen is a report that stem cell treatment didn't improve ventricular function. This is still very preliminary however. ...Read more
No: It's early repolariztion, a normal variant.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
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?
ESR reflects: The magnitude of inflammatory process in your body. Minor elevations are not a cause for concern. Stress, exercise & smoking may cause this subtle elevations. Serious medical conditions like malignancy, heart attack & stroke can cause higher elevations. Check online for more info. God bless you! ...Read more
Haven't heard of it: Haven't heard of elevation changes causing changes in one's menstrual cycle. However, humans and animals are affected by the amount of sunlight they get, so there might be hormonal differences that occur if there is a big difference in sunlight (above fog/smog/clouds vs. Below fog/smog/clouds, or being indoors most of the time vs. Being outdoors most of the time) after a woman changes elevations. ...Read more
