I just had a ecg and it said left axis deviation and a t wave abnormality. What does this mean?

Understanding based: both heart anatomy & how the electrical stimulation spreads from cell-to-cell with the atria, then within the ventricles. Both terms relate to both the anatomy & electrical activity within the ventricles, both depolarization (left axis deviation) and then repolarization (T waves). Depolarization is delayed toward right vs. left side of ventricles. Repolarization pattern not normal; many reasons. ...Read more

I had a pre-surgical ecg. The result is like : normal sinus rhythm left axis deviation abnormal ecg what does it mean?

Axis: The preponderance of electrical activity of your heart is directed to the left of your body. This may mean your left ventricle is thickened (hypertrophy), or may be caused by a minor conduction delay (left anterior hemiblock). Neither of these are very serious, and will probably not delay your surgery. Ask your doc about your ekg findings. ...Read more
