Minor High Lateral Repolarization Disturbance
What does it mean when an ECG says borderline and extreme right superior axis deviation. Slight high lateral repolarization disturbance consider Ische?
Depends.: If the pr is really short ( less than 0.12 s) or there is a delta wave could represent a ventricular pre-excitation syndrome such as wpw. Need specific numbers to answer that. Repol is often normal in your age group. ...Read more
What does it mean if ECG showed short pr interval. & flat or low neg t in avl & v6. & high lateral and lateral repoloarization disturbance (mild) ?
Different things: A short pr interval means that the heart beat is either initiated in a part of the atrium which is distinct from the sinus node (where it usually starts) or is being conducted with accelerated velocity to the ventricles. The other changes are "non-specific" and can be due to anything, like sodium, potassium or magnesium levels, medicines, lead position, skeletal variation and many other things. ...Read more
Should i go to ER if doc did EKG & it shows flat/low neg. T in avl & v6 & short pr interval with high lateral & lateral repoloarization disturbance?
No : These are non-specific and have no significance to an 18 year old if you're otherwise well. ...Read more
Heart palpitations and dizziness. Ekg showed- shortened pr interval, and high lateral/lateral repolorization disturbance?
R/O LGL Syndrome: The association of tachycardia and a short pr interval on an ekg may indicate an abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that can cause frequent palpitations and a sustained rapid heart rate. There are two syndromes called wolf-parkinson-white(wpw) and lown-ganong- levine(lgl) that are associated with short pr and tachycardia . Medication or ablation can prevent the palpitations and tachycardia. ...Read more

Any symptoms?: Do you have any symptoms? Why was the study done the results of which you listed? Did you talk to the doctor who did that study? ...Read more
Should i go to ER if doc just did EKG and it shows flat or low t in v6 and short pr interval with minimal high lateral & lateral repoloarization dis.?
NO: These are non-specific and have no significance to an 18 year old if you're otherwise well. ...Read more
Ecg showed episodes of 'high take off' / early repolarization, cardio said this is a normal finding in healthy men. I read it causes Vt?!
Early repolarization: Years of believing early repolarization is benign don't get invalidated by one observational study. Too early to be nervous about it till lots more data and subset detail develops. ...Read more
What is early repolarization- high take off? What are the risks? Is it a desiese? Can it lead to a heart attack?
24h ecg showed episodes of early repolarization/high take off. 25 male, echo normal, normal ecg normal. Am I at risk of VT? VF? I get pvcs
Answer: 5-10% of the population have early repolarization (ER) on EKG, the vast majority of whom never have symptoms. However, there have been shown to be certain patterns on the EKG that predict higher risk for VT and VF. And other predictors for VT and VF need to be checked for. Would see a cardiologist and obtain copy of EKG from medical records of the facility prior to appointment. ...Read more
EKG came back High Risk Operation.ST Elevation, consider early repolarization, pericarditis or injury. ST&T wave abnormal consider anterior ischemia?
Need further workup:
Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease
myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more
These terms : Refer to the movement of ions across the membranes of electrically active cells, like nerves and cardiac muscle. When they fire, they depolarize. When they reset, they repo large. ...Read more
What does sinus rhythm nd early repolarization pattern in 12 leads mean? Can some explain it me well, please? Help and thanks!
In 400 characters...: Sinus rhythm=normal electrical discharge of cardiac muscle from sinus node in right atrium. Repolarization=cells return to rest after electrical discharge. Early Repolarization=some regions going to resting phase earlier than others. May be harmless in young people or athletes—it appears as upward sloping elevations of the ECG more to the front of the heart. Controversial whether this is harmless. ...Read more
No: Early repolarization is not dangerous , it is a benign ECG finding that reflects how your heart resets itself after an electrical event (which precedes the mechanical event of contraction ). Likewise, mvp in the vast majority of cases is not dangerous and the pvc's associated are more a nuisance than a dange. The exception is in rare cases when mvp is assoc with significant regurgitation. ...Read more
I was just found out I have early repolarization. Should I be worried about sudden cardiac death?
No: As an isolated finding,early Repolarization is a rare cause of sudden cardiac death.check with your doctor or get a second opinion if in doubt ...Read more
ECG: Both mvp and early repolarization are quite common. It would take a lot of data acquisition to prove that they were associated and i don't think it will be done soon. You see both independently so often that i doubt there is an association. ...Read more
Abnormal EKG.: Possible cause of a short PR interval on EKG include AV junctional rhythm, Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome (pre-excitation with a short PR interval and a normal duration QRS interval) or Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome (pre-excitation with a short PR interval, a long QRS interval with a delta wave often with paroxysmal tachycardia or atrial fibrillation. An electrophysiologist can help with management. ...Read more
I Hve sedentary lifestyle. Does sinus rhythm and early repolarization pattern normal or not? Im 24 and not physically activ. Help please.
With your sedentary lifestyle at your age , and not physically active you MUST see a Psychologist as soon as you can. DO NOT DELAY!
Please let me know how things develop. ...Read more

I was told my son's EKG has a slight st elevation with repolarization. He is 11 years old an an extremely active athlete. Should he stop hockey?
Probably not: It sounds like you're referring to normal variant ekg finding, common in young males, called "early repolarization." there's no evidence firmly linking this with future cardiac risk. If your son has had absolutely no symptoms with sports (i assume not), may not need anything more. If any concern, or ekg not convincingly benign to the doctor, an echo will rule-out structural heart disease. ...Read more
Atrial repolarizatio: You can see this on some ecgs but not on most. It is seen when present after the P wave and before the onset of the QRS ...Read more
Normal: Essentially a normal findingGet a more detailed answer ›
Causes of borderline repolarization abnormality (ST dep & abnormal T)? Rest of ECG normal and echo normal.
It is likely you are: referring to a computer interp. of your EKG. The computer program is slanted to indicate any potential abnormality no matter how insignificant. Ask a human with EKG experience (many FP and IM MDs do not possess any skills in reading EKGs they just read the English) to interpret the EKG for you. Odds are it is completely normal for you. You can attach it to an inbox consult with me if you want. ...Read more
What does an EKG finding of Sinus rhythm with short PR BORDERLINE ECG ST elevation probably due to early repolarization mean?
Two different parts: The PR interval is a measurement of time it takes for the electricity to travel from the top of the heart, to the bottom. A short PR interval means it the electricity travels quicker than expected. Early repolarization means the heart muscle begins recovering quickly after the electricity has traveled through. ...Read more
My EKG shows early repolarization. Can I have a cardiac arrest? Is early repolarization dangerous? I am 22 years old?
Normal, normal, norm: Early repolarization is completely normal. You have no more risk of cardiac arrest than I do (actually, much less than I since you're 22 and I'm 62). ...Read more
