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
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.
It is rare comparing: To the left side.Get a more detailed answer ›
Rvh: Need to know more to advise but half hour daily walk is a good start.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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?
Over read: Computerized reading can often over read the ECG have an expert read them when in doubt
Can right ventricular hypertrophy in an infant be resolved if the underlying condition resolves? Underlying condition is BPD, PH and Sleep Apnea.
Yes: 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. PRMG/Pediatrics may review records faxed: 8582599689See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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
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.
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.
15 yo son extremely athlete has a heart murmur, recent EKG showed bradycardia, right ventricular hypertrophy and possible biventricular hypertrophy?
Might be fine, but..: This sounds like the sort of thing that the computer in the ECG machine would say, and it is often wrong. He should have an echocardiogram and an examination by a pediatric cardiologist. This may very well all be nothing, but best to check it out thoroughly.See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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?
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.
