What does borderline left atrial abnormality mean?

What does borderline left atrial abnormality mean?

EKG: I presume this is on electrocardiogram computer generated interpretation and defined by the width of the P wave and P wave morphology. This cannot be interpreted alone. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

What is left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle block?

What is left atrial abnormality incomplete right bundle block?

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

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?

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

Please translate my results; EKG (Sinus Brady, HR 71- Low voltage in precordial leads. -Left atrial enlargement. - Nonspecific T- abnormality.) - 8/25/2017 EKG?

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

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?

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

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

See below: 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?

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

Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global. Is my heart ok?

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

What is atrial fabrillation?

What is atrial fabrillation?

Abnormal rhythm: 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

What is more serious, atrial or ventricular fibrilation?

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
