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?
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
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?
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
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
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
