Does atrioventricular dissociation precede heart block?

Does atrioventricular dissociation precede heart block?

AV dissociation: Atrioventricular dissociation can occur with or without heart block. For example, during ventricular tachycardia, the ventricular impulses are usually not going retrogradely to the atrium, so there is av dissociation without any heart block. The important thing is whether av dissociation is resulting in a ventricular rate slow enough to be symptomatic with dizziness or syncope. ...Read more

ABNORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY: SMALL SIZED REVERSIBLE PERFUSION DEFECT INVOLVING APICAL INFEROLATERAL SEGMENT AND APEX OF LEFT VENTRICLE?

ABNORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY: SMALL SIZED REVERSIBLE PERFUSION DEFECT INVOLVING APICAL INFEROLATERAL SEGMENT AND APEX OF LEFT VENTRICLE?

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read more

Does atrioventricular dissociation cause heart block?

Heart Block: Yes av dissociation can cause heart block, like third degree heart block is complete av dissociation but all av dissociation are not heart block. ...Read more

Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?

Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?

Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read more

Can right ventricle dilation cause heart palpitations?

Can right ventricle dilation cause heart palpitations?

Yes: Dilation of any of the heart chambers can cause disordering of the heart's conduction system & cause palpitations or arrythmias. ...Read more

Does atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response cause ventricular fibrillation?

Does atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response cause ventricular fibrillation?

Only in a Very Few: Generally, the answer to this is a very solid "no." this is a rare complication of people with another condition (on top of their afib) called wolff-parkinson-white syndrome (or wpw). In certain patients having both conditions, the top chamber is too-well connected to the bottom and can trigger ventricular fibrillation. ...Read more

MRI of the brain 12.07.2014 CONCLUSION: external hydrocephalus. Lateral ventricles ASYMMETRICAL BRAIN L> R, Ext. Third ventricle is not expanded, the

Hydrocephalus: External hydrocephalus is a build up of cerebrospinal fluid over the surface of the brain rather than in the ventricles. Normally cerebrospinal fluid circulates from the brain to the spinal cord and back to the brain. When there is poor reabsorption or blockage then hydrocephalus (water on the brain) develops. See a neurosurgeon to help with treatment. ...Read more

Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge.

Can ventricular septal defect cause diastolic or systolic murmur?

Can ventricular septal defect cause diastolic or systolic murmur?

Yes: Almost all vsd's cause a syhstolic murmur. Larger defects with a lot of flow across them cause a diastolic murmur from increased flow across the mitral valve. ...Read more

Had a cardiac mri. Finding: mild lv cavity dilation, normal lv systolic function; lvef 62%.Trivial pericardial & pleural effusion?

Sounds pretty normal: Ef is normal, tiny effusions are nothing to worry about. Was valvular function normal - ie no stenosis or regurgitation? Also, how much dilation? Was a volume given? Would followup with a cardiologist and make sure you optimize your therapy for high blood pressure among other conditions. The lv dilation and pericardial effusions could be followed with echocardiography. ...Read more

My cardiac MRI showed persistent left sided superior vena cava drains into a dilated coronary sinus w/ mild dilation of the main pulmonary artery?

My cardiac MRI showed persistent left sided superior vena cava drains into a dilated coronary sinus w/ mild dilation of the main pulmonary artery?

Mostly a normal: Variant. Every fetus has one, but in most it involutes before birth. 0.3% of the general population has one. It is the most common variation of the thoracic venous system. Left svc draining into coronary sinus is expected 90% of the time. Discuss with your doctor the significance in your case of the mild dilation of the pulmonary artery. ...Read more
