Nonspecific Intraventricular Block
An electrical delay: Just an anomaly in the electrical conduction system. It is a very common finding. ...Read more
Is a nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay with a left posterior fascicular block anything to be concerned with? Chest hurts! Normal echo.
I have a very high blood pressure of 155/80, diziness. Found "sinus tachycardia" and "intraventricular conduction block". in ECG. Is this dangerous..
Potentially: While a blood pressure of 155/89 is NOT "very high", if you have other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, treatment should be considered. Regarding the sinus tachycardia, the seriousness of it depends on what's causing it. The intraventricular conduction block, by itself, isn't dangerous, but it may be a sign of more serious heart problems. You are right to take this seriously. ...Read more
Mapping: Electrogram mapping is used to track the spread of electrical depolarization in the heart. This information can help with arrhythmia management in a patient. ...Read more
Heart signals: The heart contracts as a result of an intricate "electrical network" that transmits electrical signals through the heart. An intraventricular conduction delay refers to a slower conduction of those signals through the heart's ventricle (s). This can result in irregular heart rhythms. ...Read more
Yes: Typically, a subarachnoid hemorrhage will circulate through the cerebrospinal fluid and gradually and steadily disappear on imaging studies, and eventually be undetectable in spinal fluid. However, a consequence of such blood degradation products might be low pressure hydrocephalus due to clustering and obstruction of outflow areas. Most pts recover, but a number may have this complication. ...Read more
Fluid drainage: Intraventricular hemorrhage can block the flow of spinal fluid in the brain causing severe pressure build up. We put a tube into the ventricle temporarily and drain out the spinal fluid until the brain pressure goes down to normal. Occasionally there is a need to remove the hemorrhage surgically. ...Read more
'time' or surgery:
If your baby has a small vsd, it may never cause any problems, and may even close up on its own.
'holes' in the heart (such as ventricular defects=vsd) may require a procedure to correct. However many non-invasive centers around the country can do the the procedure with a 'catheter device' and not require open heart surgery. ...Read more
What does it mean if your intraventricular septum is bellow the "normal" range in thickness? . 72 CM (normal >. 9 cm)
Your size?: Heart size is related to the body size. It may be entirely normal for you. It would be prudent to discuss with your doctor who already should have this information. ...Read more
Intraventricular del: IVCD can be caused by anatomic or physiologic factors which would slow electrical conduction in the ventricles. Scar tissue, infiltration of abnormal tissue, electrolyte abnormality, ischemia, infarction and lots of things can cause intraventricular conduction delay. ...Read more
Blood: This refers to bleeding that has extended into the ventricles of the brain. ...Read more
Multiple factors: Risk factors include high blood pressure, especially poorly controlled high blood pressure, blood clotting disorders, taking medication that interferes with blood clotting, and structural problems like avm, aneurism, contusion due to injury and less commonly tumor and infection. ...Read more
Generically, the mortality rate, within one year, from an intracerebral hemorrhage is 60%, year in and year out.
When the blood enters the ventricle, there appears to be even a grimmer outcome. If survival does ensue, there is a risk of communicating hydrocephalus. Although poor prognosis here, would have family conference with your doctors and understand what they think. ...Read more
IV septum: It is the wall between the two ventricles ...Read more
Sometimes: Intraventricular conduction delay (ivcd) refers to a condition in which electrical conduction through the heart muscle is delayed or slowed. It can be seen in a variety of disorders such as myocarditis, cardiomyopathy, ventricular fibrosis, heart failure, a high potassium level, and following a heart attack. Mild ivcd can be seen in normal healthy people as well. Check with your doctor. ...Read more
IVH/PVH: Intraventricular/periventricular hemorrhage (ivh/pvh) is graded from grade I to iv. Grade i, is where is a tiny hemorrhage underneath the lining of the cavity in the brain called lateral ventricle. Most studies have shown that (provided there are no other insults to the brain) and not associated with significant neurological dificits. ...Read more
No not serious: Your rhythm is normal. The nonspecific intraventricular conduction defect means that your complexes are wide in no specific (right or left bundle branch pattern) pattern. This can happen as you age, if you smoke, as part of ischemic or other heart disease. It depends on the context in which you had the ECG done. In general it is nothing to worry about but good to know and possibly have a copy ...Read more
Bleed into the brain: Ventricles are a=naturally occurring and necessary spaces within the brain substance which ordinarily are filled with spinal fluid. Bleeding within ventricles is always serious but can come a variety of causes such as prematurity, trauma, blood vessel abnormalities. Surgery may be necessary to relieve pressure build up due to the volume of blood or hydrocephalus (water on the brain). ...Read more
AfterHeart OP the intraventricular septum invariably develops an unuasual pattern of movement giving idea that LV function not as good as before, true?
Context? Symptoms?: Sounds like you are quoting a passage from an echocardiogram textbook. I'm not sure why you would, but the context of the quote is this: after open-heart surgery (cutting the pericardium), the septum (wall b/w right & left ventricle) swings AWAY from the chest wall (not towards it). While this may make it *appear* as if the LVEF is "not as good", it may be. Cardiologist have to measure differentl ...Read more
Yes,: Potentially beta blockers at significant doses could have effects on the conduction system and produce an intraventricular conduction delay. ...Read more
On an EKG, does IVCD stand for intraventricular conduction delay or interventricular conduction delay? Or is there both? Which is more common?

Age 23. Coma patient. Diffused axonal injury. Intraventricular hemmorhage. Bleeding in frontal lobe. Chances of survival? Any possible impairment?
Not good: Sorry about this one, but there will be a suboptimal outcome at best. Survival may be issue, talk to your doctors, and perhaps an eeg can guide decisions, but hard to predict outcome of comas. Sounds like a profound traumatic event, and since young and severe, have a family conference with the treatment team, and get all your questions answered. ...Read more
Is regular sinus rhythm, left axis deviation, low voltage complexes and intraventricular conduction defect a normal or abnormal ecg result?
Not really: You need to see a cardiologistGet a more detailed answer ›
What does hypokinesia of intraventricular septum apical. Concentric remodeling of the left ventricle w/segmental wall motion abnormality mean?
Description is very typical reflection for consequences of long term uncontrolled high cholesterol and blood pressure. I also guess that you might have had heart attack in past. (silent infarct?).
Practically this mean that your heart is no longer as efficient pumping blood through your body as it used to be.
You definitely need to be under care and see your doctor regularly to avoid worsening. ...Read more
