Myocardial perfusion Gated SPECT study is positive for medium size fixed perfusion defect involving the adjacent areas of inferior wall and infero- ?
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
Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls its dangerous conclusion of stress test or good ?
Perfusion & fixed defects in the mid anteroseptal, inferoseptal, inferoapical , inferior, apical septal segments with new lbbb?Heart attack or artifact?
Yes: Yes, absolutely. Avr usually has inverted t-waves normally. If you invert left and right arm electrodes, avr becomes avl so now avl has inverted t waves (where as typically it does not). ...Read more
What is "Horizontal axis, RSR' pattern in V1 and V2, low QRS voltages in precordial leads" suggestive of? IRBBB? Brugada? Malposition of electrodes?
None of the above: Your question seems desperate in trying to find a diagnosis. The EKG, while unusual, are just findings. In the absence of a pattern if symptoms, they mean nothing. While an rSR' pattern could be from a BBB (bundle branch block) it could be from lead placement as well. Brugada is a syndrome of different findings over time. A single EKG can't make a Dx. Also no mention of QT, & low voltage suggests ...Read more
Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more
How accurate is 2D Echocardiogram likelyhood of NonSustained VT in" Normal structure heart" Mitral Valve Repair few yrs on With excellent Echo result?
Diagnosis 2/8 from 11/12 stress test. Fixed inferolateral apical defect, myocardial infarct, 2 month a-fib/electric shock. Do i need a cardiac cath?
ABNORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY: SMALL SIZED REVERSIBLE PERFUSION DEFECT INVOLVING APICAL INFEROLATERAL SEGMENT AND APEX OF LEFT VENTRICLE?
Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

junctional rhythm, rightward axis, st elevation, consider inferolateral injury or infaret, acute mi.?
EKG : I would not go by the computer interpretation of any ekg, it is better to ask the physician ordering it for the interpretation. ...Read more
Meaning of the diagnosis from an EKG, 12 Lead, Initial: Sinus bradycardia, Low voltage QRS, Possible Septal and Inferior infarcts, age undetermined.
3 things: Sinus bradycardia means the heart rate is less than 60 Low voltage QRS could be associated with many things, including obesity, emphysema, lung disease, pericardial effusion, infiltrative cardiomyopathy, etc Possible septal and inferior infarcts age undetermined: there is some evidence of possible heart attacks on the septal and inferior walls of the heart, and cannot determine the age of events ...Read more

I recently underwent a echocardiogram what does these results mean spectral doppler velocity of mitral valve inflow abnormal with reversal of the e and a wave amplitude ratio tissue doppler velocity of mitral valve annulus abnormal with reversal of the
Need more infomation: This is a method of looking at function during the part of the heart cycle know as diastole (when the ventricle relaxes). The information provided needs to be taken in context with other information such as pulmonary venous inflow to detemine whether there is diastolic dysfunction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
During routine echocardiogram, is the ejection fraction usually calculated using the m-mode estimate, or the 2d volume (tracing the lv) measurement?
Either: Both methods are used. However, it is generally accepted that tracing the endocardial borders of the left ventricle at end systole and end diastole in two separate planes gives the best estimate of ejection fraction. When using only the m-mode tracing, there are many assumptions built into the estimate of ejection fraction that can challenge accuracy. ...Read more
