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
Cardiologist expained from recent ECG a very slightly rightward axis just as it had done before.And was otherwise completely normal .Significance?Could this be due to my Mitral Valve repair i wanted a clear idea of what this means.
There are a number: of reasons for a "slight right axis" on EKG but the most usual is "NORMAL FOR THE INDIVIDUAL." IT is unlikely to be related to your MV repair and has absolutely no clinical significance cardiac wise. Potentially it could reflect pulmonary issues such as longstanding COPD or asthma. In your case it is just the way you were made. Relax. ...Read more
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 2 more doctor answers
ECG - Probable left atrial enlargement, in ECHO - Mitral value - AML tip prolapse,Mild MVP,
How dangerous they are in long term, will they create heart problems, Can i continue my daily workout including weight lifting, can these go back to normal?
Mild MVP : Mitral valve prolapse is an often overdiagnosed condition. Therefore the American society of echo came up with strict criteria. So "mild" and anterior leaflet "tip" makes me question the diagnoses. U may want to get a second Opinion. Having said that, prolapse is only a concern if the valve is also leaky. You make no mention of that - so no mitral regurgitation. Then ought not to be an issue. ...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 graph is different to normal people. Graph is consistent from last 5 years. Had a mechanical mitral valve replacement 6 yrs ago. Echo shows normal?
Ekg abnormalities after mitral valve replacement.. Is it common..? Echo is looking good, but EKG is abnormal... Any idea?
MVR: Depends on the kind of ekg abnormality. Minor st elevations can be due to postoperative pericarditis. Major st changes require close attention from a surgeon or physician. Rhythm abnormalities like atrial fibrillation are common. Surgeons or cardiologist can determine the exact significance after looking at serial ekg. All depends on type of changes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Left shoulder and bicep intermittent pain. Echo and EKG 4 months ago, normal just enlarged mitral valve. Does not hurt with exercise. I run 5x wk. ?
Listen to your body: It could be a histamine response since you have allergies. Vitamin c with bioflavanoids, boswellia, and curcumin are natural substances that block histamine and inflammatory substances that can cause intermittent pain. Advil (ibuprofen) that you use is anti-inflammatory. Does it help at all? ...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
