Symptoms Of Right Ventricular Hypertrophy
Is mild right ventricular hypertrophy can always be detected by the ECG? Or it needs only Echo to be seen? Does it have signs and symptoms?
Symptoms: May depend on the etiology of RVH. It can be identified on EKG ...Read more
Hypertrophy is an increase in size of an organ or tissue, or a particular part of the body. Examples include muscle hypertrophy due to lifting weights, ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of a ventricle of the heart) due to high blood pressure or other heart disorders, or prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of ...Read more
RVH: Every finding such as RVH requires an etiologic diagnosis. That is 'why do you have RVH? ' If real right ventricular hypertrophy is present there should be an explainable cause and then the cause may require treatment. ...Read more

ASD=RV volume load: This may be a matter of semantics/terminology. Sometimes, patients with an atrial septal defect (ASD) are labeled as having a patent foramen ovale, as both lesions occur in the same spot. If there is an asd, there can be sufficient left-to-right shunting at the atrial level, resulting in rv volume overload, rv enlargement and rv hypertrophy. ...Read more
I have had 5 ECG's in the past, I had another one today, but this one said "consider right ventricular hypertrophy" could it be wrong? Really worried.
ECG: ECG's are now automatically read by a machine which prints out an interpretation to a pattern. The patterns reflect the integrity of the electrical system of the heart. At your age, and normal ECG's you need to consider other non cardiac reasons for chest pain such as gastric reflux, gas, abdominal pain. RVH is a person your age is rare. Get a consult from a good cardiologist. ...Read more
I had an ECG, it said on the report *Consider Right Ventricular Hypertrophy? But I had an ECHO and it was normal soo the ECG was wrong yes?

Can right ventricular hypertrophy in an infant be resolved if the underlying condition resolves? Underlying condition is BPD, PH and Sleep Apnea.
It may resolve as the lung disease improves, and if there is no other cause for the pulmonary hypertension such a cardiac disease.
Your physician will continue to re assess with cardiac echocardiography which can determine parameters related to pulmonary hypertension. As the lung grows, the effect of premature birth and BPD can be minimized.

My bf EKG resulted in probable intraventricular conduction delay and right ventricular hypertrophy on lead 1. Should I be worried? He is 24 and athleti
May be normal: In a young person, an ECG may show those findings (especially with an automated interpretation program) and still be normal, though the possibility of a congenital heart problem or elevated pressure in the lung circulation cannot be ruled out. Best thing to do is to talk to his doctor, consider getting an echocardiogram with doppler pressures, and if that is abnormal, see a cardiologist. ...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
Had an EKG done. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they thought perhaps right ventricular hypertrophy. Normal?
ECG: That pattern can be persistent Juvenile T wave pattern which is benign. On the other hand without seeing the ecg obvioiusly can't really say what it is. ...Read more
Had abnormal EKG. T wave inversion in lead V1, V2 and V3. Mild mitral regurgitation. And they think right ventricular hypertrophy. Is this normal?
You answered that: You correctly described your ECG as abnormal, so, no it's not normal. The ecg changes you described don't necessarily mean RVH. And mild MR doesn't cause RVH so I wonder if you're a bit confused. If you had an echo and it didn't show RVH then you're done. Ask your provider to explain the findings. ...Read more
15 yo son extremely athlete has a heart murmur, recent EKG showed bradycardia, right ventricular hypertrophy and possible biventricular hypertrophy?
What is differences between right ventricular hypertrophy & right heart failure; cor pulmonale & pulmonary hypertension? Do they hv the same meaning?
Related: Pulmonary hypertension leads to right ventricular hypertophy. If the hypertension is severe and prolongued, the hypertrophied right ventricle begins to enlarge out of proportion to it's thickness. That is called cor pulmonale. Subsequently the right ventricle begins to fail, the right ventricular end diastolic pressures rise over 20mmhg, the rv cardiac output gets compromised, legs, liver, abdswell. ...Read more
I have atrial septal defect. Can I exercise still? What can I do to prevent worsening of right ventricular hypertrophy from to asd before surgery?
Yes: You may continue to exercise normally. It would be prudent to abstain from scuba diving. The enlargement of the right heart is caused by the extra volume of blood flowing into the right heart through the asd. It will improve after the ASD is closed. ...Read more
Is there signs & symptoms for right ventricular mild hypertrophy? And if the pulmonary HTN was42.57mmHg 8months ago, what will ECG+Echo show now? Please
Depends on the cause:
In both cases the answer to your questions depends upon what is the cause. In general, right ventricular hypertrophy can lead to symptoms of right ventricular failure- leg swelling, right sided belly pain (from your liver becoming congested
with blood), and abdominal swelling (from ascites fluid).
it is impossible to predict your echo and ECG results. The only way to know is to repeat them ...Read more
I have left ventricular hypertrophy w/mvp. 2 normal nuc stress tests still have dull left sided ache. Does the lvh explain this symptom? On coreg (carvedilol) now
LVH: Left ventricular hypertrophy is when the muscular walls of the left ventricle are thicker than normal. The left ventricle hypertrophies when it does excess pressure or volume work. It can also thicken genetically or when infiltrated by some other form of cells. By far the most common causes are high blood pressure and excellent physical conditioning from long term exercise. ...Read more
LVH: Concentric LVH means that the left ventricular walls are all thickened symmetrically. Sometimes different parts of the wall thicken more than others, this is not the case in concentric type. ...Read more
Can left ventricular hypertrophy be reversed by controlling bp? 23 yr old male with avg BP of 128/88. Cardio said evidence of slight hypertrophy
Somewhat: Ventricular hypertrophy can be stabilized with medications such as beta blockers and angiotensin receptor blockers or ace inhibitors. Your blood pressure is not too high so be sure you have a correct diagnosis of he cause of the hypertrophy. In young athletes, slight hypertrophy can be normal. There are congenital and also acquired forms of ventricular hypertrophy. ...Read more
Ecg: I presume you are quoting an ecg report. Sinus bradycardia is a normal type heart rate of less than 60 beats per minute. Ventricular hypertrophy is increased voltage coming from left or right ventricle, perhaps due to increased size of the ventricle. ...Read more
