Severely Enlarged Left Atrium
Mildly enlarged left atrium with atrial fibrillation.Should I be worried about the enlarged left atrium? Thank You.
Atrial enlargement &: slowed atrial conduction are classic precursors & setup for atrial fibrillation. AFib is rare without these. Less commonly discussed are atherosclerosis, plaque ruptures & compromises of circulation to atrial muscle, a setup for ?ed atrial function just as it is for ventricular muscle. Thus optimize NMR lipoproteins, HbA1c & Systolic BP, the 3 biggest drivers of atherosclerosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ECHO: 'Markedly enlarged L-Atrium & R-Atrium'; 'moderately-severe enlarged R-Ventricle'...where does "markedly" fall on the 'scale' (mild/moderate/sev?
What does "mild concentric left ventricular hypertrophy, septum is akinetic & left ventricle is severely hypokinetic. " mean?
Enlarged left side supraclavicular node and enlarged left side axillary node. Axillary node has cortical thickening. Reason to worry?
ENLARGED NODE: NEEDS TO BE EVALUATED. NOT NORMAL, AND SHOULD BE OF CONCERN. SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. ...Read more
My echo shows "left atrial cavity severely dilated.Right atrial cavity mildly dilated.Right systolic pressure 45mmHg. What does this mean?
Complex: Your 2DE is showing enlarged chambers, left atrium and right atrium. You have high normal pressure in the lung. The information given doesn't explain the reason for the LAE. Thus happens due a reason. Suggest make an appt with a heart doc and discuss these findings. You should see a heart doc and address this. Best of luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What does a moderately dilated left ventricle signify?normal systolic function,EF 55-60%,wall thickness normal.mitral/tricuspid regurgitation present.
severe LAE, left atrium is severely dilated, mitral valve leaflets appear mildly thickened. mitral regurgitation (1-2+), what does this mean?
Question? Consult!: 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 works particularly well for a complex case because it enables emailing back and forth with the details. ...Read more
Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?
What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tricuspid Valve leak: The right atrium is 'the first chamber' of the heart where blood collects from the entire body. Blood then travels from the right atrium to the right ventricle through the 'tricuspid' valve. If there is any backflow of blood back through the tricuspid valve then that would cause the right atrium to enlarge. Since the enlargement is only mild then the valve insufficiency (leak) is probably mild. ...Read more
Probably not: First, neck vein distension can be caused by many things, only one of which is heart failure. Second, if it were due to heart failure, it would likely be on both sides, and then would reflect problems on the right heart. But since the most common cause of right heart failure is left heart failure, neck vein distension is a sign of heart failure. But not likely in you. Talk to your own doctor. ...Read more
Can you please translate my CT results indicating "mildly dilated right atrium with prominent eustachian valve"?
Benign: Eustachian valve is left over from development and plays no role whatsoever in your heart as an adult. That fact that its prominent does not have any clinical significance. A large RA can becaused by many things and alone as a finding doent mean much. If you are itherwise healthy and have no other health issues tour probbaly ok. ...Read more
"Left ventricular chamber size (by vol index) is mildly enlarged. No evidence of LV hypertrophy. " if it is not hypertrophy why is it mildly enlarged?
Probably nothing: Taken by itself, out of context, this phrase from a ct report means nothing. But medicine, and your health, do not exist out of context, and this forum is not a good place to ask this question. The best place is in the office of a good doctor who can explain these findings in the context of your situation, but it still prbably means nothing of importance. ...Read more
