Doctor insights on:
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
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
Cardiologist says very reassuringEcho?
Trans V gradient 8mmHg LV Dimensionally Normal preserved Systolic Doppler Mild LV Diastolic dysfunction. Agree?
Echocardiogram: The findings are not normal but have to be judged in context of your mitral valve repair. The abnormalities described are not hemodynamically significant and won't impact your performance status. I can understand why your cardiologist is reassured by your echocardiogram. ...Read more
Ecg , cardiac echo, heart enzyme , chest ct, cardiac angio ct, all ok.Still resting heart pulse 53-62.Increase when move.Exclude cardiac issue?
Had a cardiac mri. Finding: mild lv cavity dilation, normal lv systolic function; lvef 62%.Trivial pericardial & pleural effusion?
Sounds pretty normal: Ef is normal, tiny effusions are nothing to worry about. Was valvular function normal - ie no stenosis or regurgitation? Also, how much dilation? Was a volume given? Would followup with a cardiologist and make sure you optimize your therapy for high blood pressure among other conditions. The lv dilation and pericardial effusions could be followed with echocardiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echocardio results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Is this normal?
No.: This may be the result of longstanding hypertension. The doc who ordered your test should know more about how to interpret your results. ...Read more
Echo on 19/05/2015 conclusion: nrml sized card chambers no lv rwma no lv clot. Edd 4cm, ivs 1cm ef 70% Y'day and 2day ecg at diff hosp.shows lvh abnrm?
Different technos: Echocardiogram provides good detail of anatomy and function, i.e. Wall thickness and squeezing function of left ventrical (LVEF) as well as valvular function. EKG details spread of electrical current through the heart. Electrical changes are sometimes suggestive of wall thickness increases, but is correlation is poor. Believe the echo. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dr. could hear a murmur- did EKG showed shortened pr interval, echo showed trace mitral, tricuspid & pulmonic insuffiency everything else normal?
Echo unremarkable: Trace insufficiency is common and typically is an incidental finding. If you are not symptomatic then I would not be concerned. The short PR can be normal, and also is typically not an issue unless you are having fast heart rates or the ECG showed risk for a fast heart rate. ...Read more
Echo results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Mixd plaques no stenosis found. Pls expln.
Per echo ef 50-55%, rv size upper limit of normal, mild mv regurge, mild-moderate tricuspid insufficiency, rvsp 44 mghg. Next step right heart cath?
No, unless: Unless you are having shortness of breath that does not improve with standard medical therapy , based on those echo findings there's no need for a right heart catheterization. Pulmonary hypertension and tailored management for pulmonary hypertension is another reason to perform right heart catheterization with testing during that procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You are safe: Excess anxiety often has a physiologic cause. Make sure that you are maintaining an optimal healthy lifestyle. Get 7-8 hrs of sleep per night. Eat three healthy meals per day with 20 gm high quality protein / meal, 5 servings of fruits/vegetables / d, healthy fats(i.e. Omega3 fatty acids, coconut oil). Eat magnesium & potassium rich foods. Get 20-30 min of exercise daily. ...Read more
On echocardiogram spectral doppler shows pseudonormal (moderate) of left ventricular diastolic. Dangerous? I do have pericardial effusion.
The context matters.: pseudo-normal diastolic function also known as stage 2 diastolic dysfunction implies that the heart muscle is stiff and although it squeezes with adequate force, it does not relax efficiently and quickly to accommodate filling of the heart. It will result in increased pressure inside the chambers of the heart which can cause a pericardial effusion. You need to see your doctor to address this problem ...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?
Chst pain on off w dyspnea.Ecg heart enzyme cardiac echo angio CT w contrast ok.Can it be angina?
Angina?: What did cardiac specialist say after all your test? It's probably related to gastrointestinal issues. But best to talk with your cardio. Good luck. ...Read more
Is echocardiogram more reliable than CT to diagnose cardiomegaly? Chest CT showed mild cardiomegaly but echocardiogram was oaky.
Echocardiogram: may give a better idea of how big your heart really is. That is because a CT is performed on your back, most of the time. That does tend to make the heart look larger. The echocardiogram is done on your back but also on the side . So my feeling is if the echocardiogram says you are normal then you are. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
