Doctor insights on:
Unlikely: An normal thorough echocardiogram, especially a pediatric echo, generally rules out a vsd. It would be very unlikely to fail to identify a significant vsd on a thorough echo. Tiny ones can sometimes be missed, but they usually don't matter anyway since they rarely cause problems or need treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more

Dr. could hear a murmur- did EKG showed shortened pr interval, echo showed trace mitral, tricuspid & pulmonic insuffiency everything else normal?
Echo unremarkable: Trace insufficiency is common and typically is an incidental finding. If you are not symptomatic then I would not be concerned. The short PR can be normal, and also is typically not an issue unless you are having fast heart rates or the ECG showed risk for a fast heart rate. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Would structural heart disease in 22 yr old be ruled out by echo, ecg, cardiac mri, stress ecg, 24h ecg, cardiac coronary anatomy mra?
Echocardiogram showed normal coronary origin, 22 male. Does it rule out congenital coronary issues? Get chest pain. Had ecg, stress ecg, 24h ECG also.
With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?
Echo 2 mos ago, results = LA dilated, mild functional mr and trivial functional tr.holter result sinus rhythm, PVC seen 32.7%. Now discomfort jawline?
See your doctor: To assess whether the pain in your jaw line is related to your heart you will need a stress test. This is especially the case if that jaw discomfit occurs with exertion. The echo cardio gram will not necessarily give you information about your arteries, especially if these new symptoms. Good luck to you! ...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?
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
Is echocardiogram more reliable than CT to diagnose cardiomegaly? Chest CT showed mild cardiomegaly but echocardiogram was oaky.
Echocardiogram: may give a better idea of how big your heart really is. That is because a CT is performed on your back, most of the time. That does tend to make the heart look larger. The echocardiogram is done on your back but also on the side . So my feeling is if the echocardiogram says you are normal then you are. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cardiologist suspected 2 major blockages in rca on CT angiogram. Heart cath done today totally clear. Md states could've been artifact? Cp still! ?
Chest pains. Echo scan = septal hypokinesis. Hr 138 BP 138/90. Ambulance to a&e. Doc says possible pericarditis. A&e says muscular skelelightous.
Pericarditis or not?: Pericarditis should not result in septal hypokinesis by echo. You may have myopericarditis (involvement of the heart muscle and the coverings of the heart), or a false-positive finding by echo (sometimes it looks like hypokinesis but it is actually not). Pulse rate is high but does happen with chest pain or discomfort. Your age makes coronary (heart disease) unlikely. You need to see a heart doc! ...Read more
Could a chest Ct scan with contrast, stress echo, cardiac MRI w/CO, 3d echo twice, miss a blocked artery CAD? Done by mayo clinic AZ.Have chest pain.
Echo: Ejection >55%, transmitral doppler suggest pseudonormalization. No wall abnorm. No stenosis seen. Mild mitral annular calc. Need clarification.
Stiff heart: Pseudonormalization refers to a pattern of flow across the mitral valve as the left ventricle fills with blood when the left ventricle is "stiff" and does not relax properly. As the term suggests it appears normal but isnt when there is elevation of pressure in the left atrium. This is known as diastolic dysfunction and commonly seen in hypertension. Especially when poorly controlled. ...Read more
Neg echo stress, neg ekg. Holter monitor results 1,000 PACS Dr says benign. Worried about a blockage. Do I need an angio MRI? Very stressed
Relax: Stress is bad for your heart. Negative EKG is reassuring but does not have predictive value for future events. A negative stress echo is a good indication of low risk of heart attack in next several years. No test is 100%. Consider your risk factors for heart disease. If you remain concerned you should seek a second opinion. PACs are usually benign, but can be very distressing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
22 had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg, echo. For chest pain when excercising. Does this rule out congenital coronary anomalies?
You have already: Undergone many of the tests to exclude any ischemia to heart muscle, but the only way to rule out any congenital coronary artery anomalies is by angiogram. Talk with your cardiologist, but chance of finding any significant anomalies seem small to me with all negative results so far. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
22 chest pain exersise since 18. Had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, echo, 24h ecg. Should I have CT angiogram? No family history.
I'm 41yr female, no cardio risk factures, passed stress test, but echocardiogram showed mild sclerotic valve disease. Need insight.
Echocardiogram: Mild sclerotic valve abnormalities read on echo suggest beginning degenerative changes in a/the valve(s). Sometimes we overread these findings and often they are not a big deal. It is worth discussing with your doctor to get his/her viewpoint on the report. Keeping your risk factors controlled is the best you can do if the abnormalities are true. ...Read more
Ct angiogram score of 0 in 2012, 2 negative stress echo and 3d echo. Dad heart attack at 50 and I have CHD papvr. Chest pain but negative test. Help?
CTA score?: We don't report a score with a coronary artery CTA. CAC (coronary artery calcium) score is done with CT but without IV contrast. The nonconrast study looks at calcified plaque and is useful for risk stratification but would not detect non calcified plaque as a CTA would. Partial anomalous pulmonary venous return is an extra cardiac left to right shunt and could eventually lead to pulm HTN. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Had doppler echocardiogram. Report says "mild aortic insufficiency andtrace tricuspid insufficiency". Doc says this is normal findings. Any worries?
Probably: For a woman of 49 years old, your results are probably not "clinically" significant . This means that although your results are not entirely normal, they (the mild aortic and trace tricuspid insufficiency) do not contribute to any of your symptoms in a significant way. ...Read more
