I have non-dilated left ventricule with good biventricular systolic function. What does this mean and did I inherit it? I also have bradycardia.

I have non-dilated left ventricule with good biventricular systolic function.  What does this mean and did I inherit it? I also have bradycardia.

Normal: A non-dilated left ventricle would be a normal finding. That biventricular systolic function is good means it's normal as well (normal contractility). More information needed to answer what disease you are asking whether you inherited. ...Read more

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

Not quite the same: Multifocal pvcs means multiple areas in the ventricles of the heart that are firing to stimulate contraction early (premature ventricular contraction). The can be in different parts of either the right or left ventricle, or both. So, having pvcs originate in both ventricles would indeed be multifocal, not all multifocal pvcs are from both ventricles. And not all pvcs are bad! often common. ...Read more

I have pvcs in both ventricles? Is that dangerous?

I have pvcs in both ventricles? Is that dangerous?

Usually Not: Pvc's are usually not dangerous. Sometimes increased frequency can lead to other heart arrhythmias, but this is less common. If bothersome, sometimes medication can be prescribed, and cutting out caffeine from the diet can be helpful. An ECG through your primary care provider or cardiologist would be appropriate at this time. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with bilateral atrial enlargement and preserved left ventrical systolic function on my recent echocardiogram. What does all this mean?

I was diagnosed with bilateral atrial enlargement and preserved left ventrical systolic function on my recent echocardiogram. What does all this mean?

Biatrial enlargement: is an increase in the size of both the upper two chambers of the heart--the right and left atria. The preserved left ventricular systolic function means the heart muscle itself is pumping normally. Atrial enlargement can be due to a problem with the heart valves, or chronic lung disease on the right, systemic hypertension on the left. It requires an expert cardiology evaluation to clarify. ...Read more

What does T wave abnormalities on the right ventricle mean? Was in ER and that was found with RBBB. I was told not to worry about the palps.

See a cardiologist: I disagree, I think a cardiologist should examine you, probably do a echo. A 34 y/o with RBBB could be normal but could have several underlying causes. I would play safe than being sorry. ER doctor usually only worry if its a acute emergency. ...Read more

I had PVCs on my 48hr heart monitor, but nothing from the atrium. Does that mean no atrial fibrillation?

I had PVCs on my 48hr heart monitor, but nothing from the atrium. Does that mean no atrial fibrillation?

Atrial fib: The monitor did not pick up any evidence of atrial fibrillation during the 48 hour period you wore it. It is still possible that you could have had episodes of atrial fibrillation at other times, but from the information at hand there is no proof of that. ...Read more

My ECG reads that I have aberrant ventricular. What is this?

Missing Words: My guess is that it said "aberrant ventricular conduction" and you're missing the last word. I'd have to see the ekg to know though. Sorry :\. ...Read more

What does abnormal right axis deviation mean? Qrs axis >100 what are the causes of this? I have asd and Asa. Does it mean enlarged heart or asd worse?

What does abnormal right axis deviation mean? Qrs axis >100 what are the causes of this? I have asd and Asa. Does it mean enlarged heart or asd worse?

See my earlier post: RAD means that the electrical impulses arising from the right ventricle are abnormally strong and suggest that your ASD is volume overloading and overworking your RV. AS I said earlier, you need the left to right shunt quantified by echo and corrected if >1.5:1. ...Read more

If i had an artery/renal sonogram that came back normal, does that mean my heart and kidneys are ok?

If i had an artery/renal sonogram that came back normal, does that mean my heart and kidneys are ok?

Renal sonogram: A normal renal sonogram rules out one possible cause of high blood pressure.If a stenosis were present it could have been a cause of your elevated blood pressure. ...Read more

I have high blood press and tachycardia. Every time i get EKG it says I have left ventricular hypertrophy but i had echo which was normal! why?

I have high blood press and tachycardia. Every time i get EKG it says I have left ventricular hypertrophy but i had echo which was normal! why?

Echo more reliable: With a history of high blood pressure, you are definitely at risk of developing left ventricular hypertrophy over time. Both an ECG and an echo may screen for hypertrophy. An ECG is cheap and quick, but it is known to sometimes "over-call" hypertrophy, especially in adolescents. An echo is more reliable, a "better" test for this, but it is more expensive and time-consuming. ...Read more

What does it mean when the report says Diated left & righ ventricle with associated large stroke volumes and preserved systolic function?

What does it mean when the report says Diated left & righ  ventricle with associated large stroke volumes and preserved systolic function?

It means you have: an enlarged heart but the muscle itself is pumping normally. You should discuss this with your health care provider who has all of your health information and can advise you more specifically. ...Read more

Is a qrs axis of >100 abnormal? have an Asa and asd does it mean my heart is enlarged or asd has gotten bigger Ekg reads abnormal right axis deviation

Is a qrs axis of >100 abnormal? have an Asa and asd does it mean my heart is enlarged or asd has gotten bigger Ekg reads abnormal right axis deviation

Right axis deviation: Electrocardiographic right axis deviation which is increasing over time associated with an ASD can indicate right ventricular dilation. If the ECG is a one point in time measurement, then its reliabiltiy as a predictor of right heart enlargement is less. Discuss with your doctor. Measuring shunt with echo is an easy way to evaluate the ASD. Sometimes a TEE is needed. ...Read more

I have mild hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the left ventricular. Can this cause fatal arrhythmia? I have had an echo which showed my heart is strong.

I have mild hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in the left ventricular. Can this cause fatal arrhythmia? I have had an echo which showed my heart is strong.

Yes: Unfortunately hcm can lead to sudden death. The heart usually beats well. Most patients should be on some medication, most frequently a beta-blocker, with this diagnosis. You should be followed bya cardiologist familiar with this disease. ...Read more

My ophthalmologist said that I have  afferent pupillary defect (apd 5) and hippus in my right eye, what does this means?

Hippus: Hippus is when you shine a light on the eye and the pupil constricts, then it opens back up... This bounciness is called hippus. Some say hippus is an early, mild apd. ...Read more
