Mild Right Ventricular Enlargement
Please explain simply what is mild concentric ventricular hypertrophy with mild left atrial dilation?
Left heart large: The main pumping chamber of the heart ( l ventricle) is evenly increased in size so that the pumping cavity is a bit smaller. The priming pump ( l atrium) is mildly enlarged. This is very likely due to uncontrolled high BP over many years. Because it is mild i would not expect any symptoms or functional difficulty at all. Treatment is to control bp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mild left ventricular systolic dysfunctionLeft ventricular ejection fraction 40 % with global left ventricular hypokinesis,Myxomatousmorphology mv?

Can mild obstructive sleep apnea cause mild to moderate right ventricular enlargement? Normal function just enlarged. Left is normal
Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?
What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does "mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, septum is akinetic & left ventricle is severely hypokinetic. " mean?
This used to be: Called "idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis" ihss which was a mouthful reduced to ash, assymetric septl hypertrophy.These may be the cause of sudden death in young athletes, perhaps from arrhthmias, but rescussitation may be difficult. If you know you have this. You warrant a cardiologist to advise management, and it may be minor to nothing, but trust an expert not a website for this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whats the difference between right ventricular enlargement, cardiomyopathy and right sided heart failure? What is worse?
Hello again!: RV enlargement can be a SIGN of something wrong with the RV (weakness, pressure or volume overload). Cardiomyopathy means muscle weakness: the ventricle fails to contracts with normal vigor. This can be due to many things: the commonest are viral infection, alcohol, and genetics. If the RV can't handle the load, it may eventually fail resulting in"right sided heart failure". ...Read more
Echo findings are within normal limits except for mild to moderate right ventricular enlargement
right ventricular systolic pressure 21 mmhg ? Ideas?
Accuracy: Echo is not an accurate or reliable test for rv enlargement. If there is a question, you would need an mri. Often, the absence of associated findings (e.g. Severe tricuspid regurgitation, elevated pulmonary artery pressure, intra cardiac shunting, changes of RVH on ekg, abnormal pulmonary vessels on chest xray) are enough to make rve unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Summary of my resent echogram;
1-Low normal left ventricular function. Ejection fraction is est.52%
2-Mild left atrial enlargement.
3-Mild to moderate aortic valve regurgition.
4-Moderate aortic valve stenosis.
5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation.
Need cardiologist!: There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
PAH: Yes it can. In Pulmonary Hypertension, imagine the right side of the heart as a pump and the pulmonary arteries as a dam. When pulmonary artery pressures keep going up, the blood backs up into the pump (heart) and can affect both chambers of the right side of the heart. The Right Atrium can enlarge and the Right Ventricle can enlarge, become thick, or lose ability to pump properly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Your cardiologist ca: Since this is a heart related matter, your family doctor should guide you and arrange a consultation with a cardiologist. Right heart can be dilated for any reasons that cause pulmonary hypertension such as chronic or acute lung disease. I would want to be sure there is no pulmonary emboli(blood clots in your lungs). ...Read more
How concerned should I be with an aortic valve area of 1.09 and mild left ventricular hypertrophy, left axis deviation and t wave abnormality ?
Sounds like : You have moderate to severe aortic valve stenosis. You need to see a cardiologist who can determine other parameters of severity, such as pressure gradient across the valve and velocity of blood flow through the valve. If you have symptoms of fainting or congestive heart failure, it is more serious. Sometimes, the valve can be replaced without chest surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
