P Mitrale Ecg
Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more
If an ECG shows that I have old inferior infarction, can the abnormality on the ECG be from mitral valve repair?
Not likely: It's a possibility, but not very likely that an artery can be injured during a mitral valve repair. Comparing ecg's preoperative to postoperative could shed some light on this, but to really determine the cause of any change would require a coronary angiogram. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am experiencing escape beats at times, I had my ECG and reveald pvc's but n0t that often. My 2d echo is ok but with slight mitral backflow.?
Very common-no worry: Occasional escape beat/pvcs occur in virtually every person at some point. For an adult, the heart beats on an average 115000-120000x/day, I am actually quite amazed it is not having more irrgular beats. Slight mitral backflow (regurgitation) is also common. Normal echo is reassuring. If no symptoms such as dizziness/chest pain, i would not worry. If u r still concerned, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have taken an echo, cchest xray and ECG one year before. In the echo iam having mil mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation.Ef 75%.This is ok?
Depends: Generally 55-75% ef is regarded as "normal". Mitral valve prolapse, "mild" mitral regurgitation and a high "normal" ejection fraction only provides part of the picture. Your overall heart function, amount of "leak", heart muscle thickness can all play a role and require your cardiologists interpretation. This may provide general information: http://goo.Gl/0u8gj. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there a difference between generalised anxiety disorder and mitral valve prolapse. I have had clear ecg/chest x rays but still getting symptoms!?
MVP/GAD: They are different. Gad is a psychiatric condition and mvp is cardiac. There is an association between panic disorder, a different anxiety disorder , and mvp. Some pts. With panic disorder also have mvp. Theories have proposed the surges of adrenaline with panic attacks may stretch the cords holding the mitral valve in place in the heart, causing prolapse into the ventricle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
