Causes Of St Elevation
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
See below: 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?
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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
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
