When is bradycardia an issue after ecg, 24h ecg, echo, cardiac angiogram, cardiac mri. Hr sometimes 52 resting or resting in bed 48. Age 22 male.
It's an issue if u: Have symptoms along with it such as dizziness, feeling of passing out, weakness, headache, chest pain etc. People who do strenuous exercise including athletes have slower heart rate as their heart is more efficient than average individual. Though their heart pump slower, the amount of blood coming out of the heart from each heart beat is greater. Follow up with your cardiologist. Take care! ...Read more
Should everyone have a stress test and how long are test like stress, echocardiograms and angiograms good for? I had this complete work-up in 2008 and the impression was no visible coronary heart disease. Yet said the patient does have diastolic dysfunc
Not everyone needs: Stress test echocardiograms and angiograms give a lot of information but do not predict everybody who goes on to have disease. Not everyone has a gradual reduction in vessel size. Some people will form a clot that can occurr in minutes leading to heart attack. Keep cholesterol's under control, blood pressure monitored, diabetes treated, don't smoke and keep your weight down and should be ok. ...Read more
Normal ekgs. Normal echo. Normal stress test. Normal chest xray and blood work good. Is a CT coronary angiogram needed? Or all these tests sufficient?
Probably sufficient: I assume that these tests were done for evaluation of chest pain. Unless you have extreme risk factors, the likelihood of chest pain being related to coronary artery disease in a 28 year old is very low. The key to determining the cause of your chest pain is a good history by an expert clinician, supported by a full examination. There are many non-cardiac causes of chest pain. ...Read more
As a doctor would you rule out almost any heart problem if a 21 yr old male had: ecg, echo, stress ecg, 48hour ecg, blood work, coronary angiogram normal?
Yes but!: In the field of medicine, expect the unexpected! ...Read more
Would you do CT angiogram in 18 yr old with exertion chest pain after ecg, stressecg, 24hecg, echo, cadiac mri, cardiac angiography, all normal?
CTA: I personally would be unlikely to recommend that radiation exposure in such a patient without a strong belief there was a risk/benefit preponderance to benefit. Without more information I wouldn't predict benefit given all the other studies. ...Read more
Ekgs good (sinus tachycardia). Chest xray. Blood work. Cardiac enzymes. Ct angiogram ok. Echo and stress test on wednesday. Is it safe to say all is w?
With you heart?: Yes...Only thing not mentioned is arrhythmia. ..Rest easy you've been evaluated about thoroughly as anyone could be. ...Read more
Hi, my mom had a coronary angiogram done last monday, she cannot stand straight after doing that, is that normal?
Stress ECG abnormal but coronary angiogram normal, any other test (e.G echo) to ruled out underlying heart disease?
24yr old. Echo, ecg, 24hr ecg, heart mri + mri angiogram to rule out coronary anomalies. All normal. Would you say structurally normal even with pvcs?
Yes: I heart is considered structurally normal in the absence of structural disease. Arrhythmia does not constitute structural abnormality. A high PVC burden can result in decreased LV ejection fraction. At that point one would be considered to have a structurally abnormal heart. ...Read more
Depends: If a stent is placed, they'd like you to take it easy for a week or two. If not and all is well, you are good to go next day unless you are a wwf fighter, high cable walker, or a belly dancer, because your groin will be sore for a couple days. ...Read more
How many cardiac cta (computed tomography angiogram) procedures are performed annually in small hospitals?
Is cardiac MRI stress testing safer than cardiac angiogram? I'm really worried about my MRI stress test tomorrow.
Yes, since: MRI is relatively noninvasive, and angiogram requires catheterization. The tests do not provide the same information, however. MRI looks for ischemic or infarcted myocardium, which cannot be readily diagnosed on angiography. Each test has its own limitations and indications. ...Read more
Depends on situation: Nuclear stress test involves looking at perfusion of heart for defective areas representing coronary artery disease looking for areas of permanent damage versus areas that are reversible possible related to area of coronary narrowing. Coronary ct angiogram looks at anatomy of coronary arteries looking for areas of narrowing and blockage. Answer depends on information physician needs and insurance. ...Read more
Had cardiac magnetic resonance angiogram. Saw both arterties, would they of seen if it was a myocardial bridging?
Maybe: The role of cardiac MRI in the diagnosis of myocardial bridging is unclear at this time. It would not be my choice of test if I suspected this diagnosis in one of my patients. This diagnosis is typically established during cardiac catheterization, supplemented by intravascular ultrasound. Ct angiography may be useful as well. ...Read more
5months&still feeling chest pressure and sob when exerted or resting. Evry test came back fine. This my anxiety or possible cad? (havnt had a angiogram)
Shortness of breath: Shortness of breath and chest discomfort can happen from anxiety, however complete workup is needed prior to blaming it on anxiety. A ct of chest and echocardiogram are needed to rule out various problems. Diseases of heart valve, pericardium, lung, and chest wall can produce these symptoms. Clinical acumen of an experienced of a physician can also be very helpful in settling the issue. ...Read more
How sensitive is a cardiac MRA scan in comparison to an angiogram in a slightly over weight 22 year old female with chest pain?
Not valuable: Cardiac MRA is valuable for cardiac chambers, volumes, and shunts but for visualizing the coronary arteries, the test you want is a cardiac CT angiogram which has better temporal resolution. Understand: unless you have diabetes or use cocaine, the incidence of coronary disease in a 22 yo female is ...Read more
My husband was rushed by ambulance with Chestpain, weak, pain in arms HR of 37 for angiogram. It was clear. Still cardiac issue? Famil history
Maybe: It is certainly possible he still has a cardiac problem. If you are concerned about this, I would start by discussing it with your primary care doctor and also a cardiologist. ...Read more
Chest tightness, shortness of breath and nausea, last test cardiac angiogram but having diff. Getting HR down without getting BP too low, what next?
Which procedure is more useful to detect artery blockage, angiography, CT angiogram, or cardiac catheterization and why?
I'm 21 and have had problems with angina-like pain all mylife. More recently, I have started getting palpitations and breathlessness. I have had ekgs, holter, echos, bloods and cardiac CT angiogram done. Have I left any bases uncovered?
Look elsewhere: You seem hung up on cardiac causes but you haven't said anything about consultation with a gastroenterologist to look at your esophagus. Esophageal spasm can mimic angina and can even get better with nitroglycerin. You should also consider whether or not this is an anxiety or panic attack. ...Read more

Coronary Angiogram: A coronay angiogram or catheterization is an invasive diagnostic procedure to evaluate the arteries in the heart looking for plaque, occlusions or blockages caused by cad, coronary artery disease. This test allows the cardiologist to look at the arteries by using contrast fluoroscopy, a type of x-ray, to better evaluate the risk of a cardiac event. Http://swcva. Com/hospital_procedures.
