If Ablock Is In The Heart What Would The Echo Color Show
Posterior wall?: You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve. But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
What blood test should a dr do to determine if there is ischaemic tissue in the septum of the heart?
No such test: I do not think there is such a test with such specificity. ...Read more
What is the best test to see if my heart arteries are clear besides the heart cath? Whatever is the most accurate.
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
Is it ok if the pulmonic valve and the pulmonary artery were not well visualized in my echocardiogram if I had an abnormal ecg?
What was looking 4 ?: What was the doc looking for when he ordered the test? Discuss that with him and if appropriate the test can be redone. ...Read more
What is the most effective test to determine the presence of old heart attack to any ventricle of the heart?
Old heart attack: You should see a cardiologist. One thing they might do is an echo car diorama where they have a, look at the actual motion of the heart muscle and the flow of the blood through the heart. That should show if any part of the heart is not working right, like for instance from damage due to a heart attack. ...Read more
Unrelated: If you have blockage, it can be treated with angioplasty (balloon dilation and stenting). If you have paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation on Tambocor, (flecainide) it can be treated with ablation. They are separate issues. Blockage is not a contraindication to ablation. ...Read more
Joke: Is this some sick joke or riddle? From a medical standpoint is doesn't make any sense. Sorry. ...Read more
Possibly.: An ECG may be entirely normal, even with severe blockages. An ECG can suggest blockage with changes that occur when the heart is actively receiving reduced blood flow, and will often show damage that has already occurred. Observing the ECG during exercise (stress test), particularly if coupled with an image such as echo or nuclear scan, will be more helpful in screening for blockages. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If your doctor says you have av block in the heart, does that mean something is starting to block the blood flow?
What is the significance of a LAVI Range of 47 (Severely Abnormal) on a Doppler Echo if the other tests on the Echo are normal?
Diastolic dysfxn: LAVI references left atrial volume, indexed to body surface area. A value of 47 suggests the chamber is larger than normal, and likely related to elevation of pressures in that chamber. This is called diastolic dysfunction, and suggests your heart may be stiff from potential common underlying issues, such as hypertension or aging. It may be asymptomatic and may not cause long-term issues. ...Read more
Possibly: The larger vessels entering the crainum are often and well evaluated by mr angiography. As these vessel branch and travel to the brain matter they get progressively smaller. Some vascular problems can be seen even is some of these smaller arteries. It cannot see microvascular disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Would an echocardiogram and stress test show if there was a blockage or problem in the carotid arteries?
Had a CT A done, this was the results Mild calcification of the left main. Otherwise normal coronary arteries. What does that mean?
Occult CAD present: There is evidence of coronary atherosclerosis in your arteries atleast in the left main artery and albeit mild. Over time cholesterol hardens and that is what CT scan picks up. So at your young age if there is early atherosclerosis, you should have your fasting lipid panel be checked and then modify your lifestyle to mitigate progression of cholesterol build in your arteries. ...Read more
What part of the heart would receive less blood if the were a blockage in the left main coronary artery?
Left main: most of the blood to the left ventricle passes thru the left main. That is why it is such a serious lesion. ...Read more
Are there any cardiologists that can tell me why the P wave on an ECG is pointed amplitude 2.5 mm and the U wave is tall? What are the possible causes of this if previous ECGS were normal
Standardization: a sudden increase in P amplitude and U amplitude when previous EKG was normal likely is due to change in the settings of the EKG machine with increased gain voltage amplitude which is indicated on the bottom left of the page should state 10 mm per millivolt. If this is not the case..... increased P amplitude indicates large atrium and increased U wave may indicate low potassium, or high Calcium ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does dr mean by : Evidence of moderate diffuse disease of the mid and distal LAD, which appears to be a NARROW vessel? In a Heart Cath report. Thank you.
36 yo?: It means your main coronary artery is filled with cholesterol to the point that the artery is narrowing. This is a main artery of the heart that feeds the heart if it is blocked off you have a heart attack. Now you need to know the percentage of blockage for this will determine if you need a stent or not? I any event you need to live a healthy lifestyle eat well and once cleared by cardiology get ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a severely dilated left atrium according to an echo test
The rest of the heart is normal
Can I reverse this condition?
Depends: Isolated dilatation of the left atrium is very unusual and is often associated with something else like a mitral valve problem. Go and ask your doctor for the rest of the information and he can determine if it is potentially reversible. Like everything else the prognosis depends on the cause. ...Read more
