Enlarged Right Atrium Of The Heart
If you have an echo suggesting that the the left atrium appears small. Is it possible that the heart was originally small within normal limits and that the right atrium may of enlarged making the left atrium appear small? Also, if the ECG also shows point
Echo: I note you list scoliosis has condition you have. Echo appearance is highly beam angle influenced. It is possible you have a normal size L atrium but the beam angles because of the scoliosis make it look small. If everything else is OK, no reason for you to be concerned unless the cardiologist is concerned about the echo. ...Read more
Can you please tell me about the heart valve that is located between the right atrium and right ventricle?
Tricuspid valve: You refer to the tricuspid valve.Get a more detailed answer ›
Does a right atrium dilated, RV pressure of 25-30 mHg, IVC dynamics 5-10 mmHg subjective possibly of pulmonary hypertension or heart failure?
If accurate, only: mildly ?ed. RA ~10 mmHg, RV systolic ~25 mmg Hg generally ~optimally healthy; similar to the values stated. Thus RA enlargement likely: mismeasurement (common, not rare; study image data yourself), marked tricuspid regurgitation, congenital variant, atrial muscle problem [eg advanced arterial disease in RA arteries; (lumens too small to see by angiography) producing RA ischemia/fibrosis], etc. ...Read more
LA enlargement : La enlargement is likely due to one of several causes including high blood pressure, valve disease or other structural heart problems. This could be related to the first degree heart block since if the atria is big then it may take longer to conduct from the atria to the ventricle. The best way to evaluate la or left atrial size is by an ultrasound or echocardiogram of the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was just diagnosed with enlarged heart. (markedly dilate delft atrium). Will keeping my BP in check keep me alive for many years? I'm 42.
Complex question : First is finding out why do you have a dilated left atrium. Do you have any mitral valve disease? Any history of atrial fibrillation? How is the left ventricular function at the 2d echocardiogram? Any systolic or diastolic dysfunction ? Without known why you have a dilated left atrim it's very difficult to predict future outcomes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A recent electrocardiogram revealed an enlarged left atrium. I'm only 25 but heart disease runs in my family. How serious of a condition is this?
Depends: There are 2 question: is the atrium truly enlarged and, if so, is there a reason for it: both can be answered with an echocardiogram. Usual reasons for left atrial enlargement are: hypertension, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, atrial fibrillation, mitral valve disease, and atrial septal defect. The EKG is very indirect. The echo is much more accurate as it directly measures LA size. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echo showed sm. pericardial effusion,ekg left atrium enlargement with first degree block,chest xray enlarge heart. what does this all mean. ?
Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?
More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done. Any recent viral infection? Pericarditis? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
