Mild Right Ventricular Enlargement
Can mild obstructive sleep apnea cause mild to moderate right ventricular enlargement? Normal function just enlarged. Left is normal
Echo findings are within normal limits except for mild to moderate right ventricular enlargement right ventricular systolic pressure 21 mmhg systolic BP 112. ..What does this mean is it bad?
Left-to-right shunt?: The assessment of right ventricular size by is not highly accurate. If the right ventricle truly is enlarged (better assessed by mri) the most likely cause is a left-to-right shunt. "pre-tricuspid" left-to-right shunts cause rv enlargement. Possibilities include anomalous pulmonary vein connection or atrial septal defect. These are not always evaluated in an adult echo lab. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.

What is the difference between right ventricular mild enlargement and cardiomyopathy? Or is it basically the same, thing?
My right ventricular is 3.5 cm? Is it very bad? It says mild enlargement? But what is normal? I have papvr/CHD they just found it. Qp/qs is 1.2 on echo
Right ventricle: Since you have partial anomalous pulmonary venous return, a good portion of the blood from the lungs is going to the right side of the heart (instead of the left side) and it is expected that the right atrium and the right ventricle will be at least mildly dilated. The more important issue if you have symptoms of right heart failure: swelling of abdomen or legs etc. Read more
31 f had echo showed mild left ventricular enlargement. Ef 60%. all else normal. Never high bp. Have non symptomatic bradycardia. Cause?
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. 6-Mode
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
What's 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
Causes of isolated right lateral ventricular of brain enlargement presenting with convulsion in a adult diabetic male?
Munro doctrine: Blockage of the opening of lateral ventricle into third ventricle (foramen of munro) has occurred. Rarely this can be due to migration of choroid plexus, into the opening. However certain benign tumors and cysts can also block this. Also brain tumors adjacent to the structure may blockade it. Sudden ventricular distention might cause seizure but low blood sugar is a more frequent cause. Read more
Short PR wave intervals, bilateral atrial enlargement, right ventricular conduction delay. What do I make of my recent ECG? Is this serious?
I have mild right ventricular hypertrophy. What type of exercise I can and can not do? How often?
Rvh: Need to know more to advise but half hour daily walk is a good start. Read more
I was just diagnosed with mild global left ventricular hypokinesia with no regional wakl motion abnormalities, does this mean I'm going to die?
No: It is a description of an echo finding of the motion of your heart. Have you had a heart attack or an infection or other heart trouble. Discuss with your Dr and a better more understandable number is to ask what your ER (ejection fraction) is but this will depend on your age and health state. 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
Ventricular system and extra ventricular CSF spaces show mild prominence, suggestive of mild cerebral atrophy. Patient can't walk. Age 26 years male.?
Had an EKG done. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they thought perhaps right ventricular hypertrophy. Normal?
ECG: That pattern can be persistent Juvenile T wave pattern which is benign. On the other hand without seeing the ecg obvioiusly can't really say what it is. Read more
Had abnormal EKG. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they think right ventricular hypertrophy. Is this normal?
You answered that: You correctly described your ECG as abnormal, so, no it's not normal. The ecg changes you described don't necessarily mean RVH. And mild MR doesn't cause RVH so I wonder if you're a bit confused. If you had an echo and it didn't show RVH then you're done. Ask your provider to explain the findings. Read more
