Doctor insights on:
Right Atrial Abnormality
Ecg: What you list are electrocardiographic patterns. Left atrial abnormality suggests the possibility of structural abnormalities of the left atrium. Incomplete right bundle branch block suggests slowing of electrical impulse conduction in the right bundle branch of the conduction system. These findings can be associated with abnormal structure and function but are not diagnostic any specific problem. ...Read more
Can pointed P waves just show that the impulse is originating somewhere other than the SAN rather than an atrial abnormality?
No: You're confusing inverted P waves with "pointed" p waves. ...Read more
I stated wrong on my last post. It didn't say possible. It said RSR' in V1 or V2, RVH or VCD, and possible atrial abnormality. Is that bad? 34/ yr F
Probably not.: Sounds like you may have what's called a right bundle branch block (rbbb) or Incomplete rbbb (both are benign). Also many times with women when they do the EKG they don't take off the bra and the leads are inadvertently placed higher on the chest giving you the reading you quoted. Those EKG computer reads are not very helpful. Go by your docs read not the computer :) ...Read more
Can doctors tell me what does left atrial abnormality and repol abnrm ischemia, diffuse leads suggests?
Several things: Laa means that your left atrium is either enlarged, thickened (hypertrophied), or both. Diffuse ischemia is a worrisome reading on an ekg and means you need further evaluation. An imaging stress test (with either echo or nuclear medicne) is the usual next step. Good luck. ...Read more
Probable left atrial abnormality. P>50mS, <-0.10mV V1 Meaning? What test, angiogram? Veinography? Should I be concerned?
Ecg: That finding on an ecg doesn't mean a whole lot. You need to discuss your own situation with your Doc in case there are other factors that need to be considered. ...Read more
Is a borderline ECG reading that states probable atrial abnormality, possible rsr' in V1 or V2 anything to worry about?
What you describe is a very acceptable EKG in a 34 year old woman.
Do not worry ...Read more
Please translate my results; EKG (Sinus Brady, HR 71- Low voltage in precordial leads. -Left atrial enlargement. - Nonspecific T- abnormality.) - 8/25/2017 EKG?
Question? Consult!: The EKG findings must be considered in context of age, history, and symptoms. These little boxes are not good for answering specific patient case problems. Consider a cardiology consultation here on HealthTap. The kind of consult where you ask for help within the next 24 hours ("inbox") works particularly well because it enables emailing back and forth with the details. ...Read more
What does it mean if I have tachycardia with left atrial enlargement, abnormal ECG with t-wave abnormality?
Findings: That combination means you need further evaluation, discuss with your doc ...Read more
Present ECG reort Left Atrial Abnormality and T wave Abnormality in high lateral leads after CABG operatin after one year. In 2016 janurary 19th CABG?
Need prior EKGs: There's no way to answer your question (presuming there is one) without knowledge of prior EKGs or your medical history. Use HealthTap Prime to upload & discuss, or discuss with your Cardiologist. In general, CABG operations mean that your EKG can change, as the heart shifts in position after the surgery. What the EKG portends requires analysis & testing. Abnormal T wave can be from ischemia. ...Read more
Had 3 EKG same day all diff times and they all say same thing sinus rhythm left atrial abnormality low limb lead voltage What does this mean?
These are all most: Likely normal for you but without knowing more about your body habitus it is impossible to say. It certainly is nothing serious and you can wait to discuss it with your health care provider at your next routine visit. ...Read more
I took an EKG today and the results say "sinus rhythm left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle branch block" What exactly could that mean?
Except incomplete RBBB is a NORMAL variant. The"atrial " comment needs more information!
Hope this is helpful

What is the possible effect on a person having an ECG result sinus tachycardia with left atrial abnormality?
Depends: The ekg is one piece of a puzzle. It is also a sensitive test that is sometimes wrong. Those findings may have little to no significance or may be meaningful when looked at in the context of your history. Talk with your doctor to see if further testing is warranted. ...Read more
They did an ECG and on the report it says "left atrial abnormality", "Sinus Rhythm", "Probable right ventricular hypertrophy" Am I safe? Should I worr
This are changes observed in particular leads and not absolute but suggestive (depending on the criteria).
Left Atrial abnormality maybe is suggesting hypertension or another etiology that increased pressure. This could be backing up to the RV and cause hypertrophy.
If that is the case you would Short of breath or have some difficulty breathing. More info needed to answer properly ...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

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 more

Left atrial enlargem: Left atrial enlargement itself has no symptoms. If there is pathology like mitral insufficiency or mitral stenosis associated with left atrial enlargement, the symptoms are produced by the physiology of the pathologic lesion. ...Read more

Atrial fibrillation (af) is a heart rhythm problem due to disorganization of the electrical activity in the atria (upper heart chambers). Af is the most common heart rhythm disorder. Patients with af may have no symptoms or may have symptoms such as decreased energy, palpitations, or heart failure. Af also increases the risk of stroke.
Various therapies may be used to treat af and stroke risks. ...Read more

Left atrial enlargem: Left atrium is the chamber the blood enters after flowing through the lungs. If its enlarged, there may be problems related to the pressure or volume of blood flow through the chamber.

Ventricular: Both are serious. However, vf is often associated with pending collapse of the circulatory system. Vf is a serious complication of acute heart attacks and other heart disease and must be treated aggressively, usually in the ICU setting. Af can be life threatening, but is often discovered incidentally and some live with it untreated. Untreated vf is usually fatal. ...Read more
