What is left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle block?

Ecg : What you list are electrocardiographic patterns. Left atrial abnormality suggests the possibility of structural abnormalities of the left atrium. Incomplete right bundle branch block suggests slowing of electrical impulse conduction in the right bundle branch of the conduction system. These findings can be associated with abnormal structure and function but are not diagnostic any specific problem. ...Read more

Can doctors tell me what does left atrial abnormality and repol abnrm ischemia, diffuse leads suggests?

Can doctors tell me what does left atrial abnormality and repol abnrm ischemia, diffuse leads suggests?

Several things: Laa means that your left atrium is either enlarged, thickened (hypertrophied), or both. Diffuse ischemia is a worrisome reading on an ekg and means you need further evaluation. An imaging stress test (with either echo or nuclear medicne) is the usual next step. Good luck. ...Read more

See below: This are changes observed in particular leads and not absolute but suggestive (depending on the criteria). Left Atrial abnormality maybe is suggesting hypertension or another etiology that increased pressure. this could be backing up to the RV and cause hypertrophy. If that is the case you would Short of breath or have some difficulty breathing. More info needed to answer properly ...Read more

I have mitral valve prolap. Echo was normal, stress test normal, ekg showed bordline left atrial abnormality, suffer from anxiety, should should worry?

I have mitral valve prolap. Echo was normal, stress test normal, ekg showed bordline left atrial abnormality, suffer from anxiety, should should worry?

Not yet: If u gave mitral valve prolapse, your echo ought bot to have been "normal" as u state but rather show evidence of a redundant leaflet and MVP with or without leaky valve. TheASE has strict criteria for MVP exactly bc it was very loosely being used. Pls reconcile with a cardiologist. SecondECG not test of choice to diagnose "left atrial enlargement" which is what is being suggested . Echo is. ...Read more

Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?

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 more
