Echo1.Old myocardial infraction (inferior+posterior+antero septal+apical)
2.Severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. What medicine you prefer?

A few: Assuming no medication side effects and normal vital signs in addition to no comorbidities that may play into this- daily aspirin, a beta blocker, statin and often an ace inhibitor. Each patient may need different things based on what else is going on. Have a conversation with your doc about it ...Read more

Describe the difference between left heart failure and right heart failure?

Describe the difference between left heart failure and right heart failure?

Physical exam: Fluid accumulates during congestive heart failure. When the right side of the heart fails, fluid accumulates in the legs and abdomen. When the left side of the heart fails, fluid accumulates in the lungs and makes the patient short of breath. Not infrequently, both sides of the heart fail at the same time. ...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

Right heart catheterization test procedure?

Right heart catheterization test procedure?

Pressure measurement: Right heart catheterization is usually carried out to measure oxygen levels, intracardiac pressures, and cardiac output, as well as cardiac tissue biopsies. The right side of the heart is reached through the venous system (from the leg (femoral) or the neck (jugular) vein). A catheter (plastic tube) is used to carry out the above tasks and a bioptome is used to do the biopsy. ...Read more

What is arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy?

What is arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy?

ARVC: Arvc is a cardiomyopathy that results in partial or total replacement of right ventricular muscle by fat or fibrous tissue. The principal problem is life-threatening heart rhythm disturbances which are the cause of death in these patients. Medications can suppress the arrhythmias but sometimes an aicd is needed. There is a genetic form of arvc. Cardiac MRI is useful for diagnosis. ...Read more

Danger in right to left heart shunting of blood?

Danger in right to left heart shunting of blood?

Shunt: R to l shunting moves deoxygenated blood into the systemic circulation so less oxygen gets delivered to the tissues. It also makes it possible for venous clots to get into the arterial system. This is not good. ...Read more

On echocardiogram spectral doppler shows pseudonormal (moderate) of left ventricular diastolic. Dangerous? I do have pericardial effusion.

Dr. Dev Vaz Dr. Vaz
5 doctors agreed:
On echocardiogram spectral doppler shows pseudonormal (moderate) of left ventricular diastolic.  Dangerous? I do have pericardial effusion.

The context matters.: pseudo-normal diastolic function also known as stage 2 diastolic dysfunction implies that the heart muscle is stiff and although it squeezes with adequate force, it does not relax efficiently and quickly to accommodate filling of the heart. It will result in increased pressure inside the chambers of the heart which can cause a pericardial effusion. You need to see your doctor to address this problem ...Read more

Does cor pulmonale = right sided heart failure?

Does cor pulmonale = right sided heart failure?

Sort of: Cor pulmonale is the inability of the right side of the heart to pump blood through the lungs. One common cause is left-sided heart failure and this isn't cor pulmonale. A host of lung diseases cause cor pulmonale and some folks use the term to include heart failure due to pulmonary thromboembolization. ...Read more

Whats the difference between right ventricular enlargement, cardiomyopathy and right sided heart failure? What is worse?

Whats the difference between right ventricular enlargement, cardiomyopathy and right sided heart failure? What is worse?

Hello again!: RV enlargement can be a SIGN of something wrong with the RV (weakness, pressure or volume overload). Cardiomyopathy means muscle weakness: the ventricle fails to contracts with normal vigor. This can be due to many things: the commonest are viral infection, alcohol, and genetics. If the RV can't handle the load, it may eventually fail resulting in"right sided heart failure". ...Read more
