Symptoms Of Ventricular Parasystole
A foramen ovale (pfo) is a small hole between the two upper chambers of the heart. It exists as part of the "fetal circulation, " when babies are inside, lungs are full of amniotic fluid. The pfo allows oxygenated blood returning from the placenta to cross into the left atrium.
Pfos usually close, however if they do not there is a very small risk for a stroke or tia.
Most people have no symptoms. ...Read more
Is this an accurate description of NonSustained Ventricular Tachy an extremely fast flurry beats lasting <3-10secs without symptoms few times a year?
Sorry No.: The definition is three or more ventricular beats faster than 120 BPM. Unfortunately what you describe could be atrial fibrillation, atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter or any of a number of other arrhythmias. Nonsustained=not lasting, Ventricular=coming from the ventricle, Tachycardia=fast heart beat. ...Read more
Depends on size:
Many vsds are mild and close on their own. Some are quite big and need surgery to repair them.
Symptoms can be nothing to fatigue from shunting blood the wrong way. There is usually a loud heart murmur but that does not cause symptoms alone.
A cardiologist can provide more information for the specific patient. ...Read more
Depends: Small vsds cause no symptoms. Large vsds in babies cause difficulty with feeding, gaining weight, and excessive sweating. If someone has a relatively large vsd that is not treated early in life, this will eventually cause pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lung arteries), which makes it hard for blood to get throught the lungs. This eventually causes the patient to turn blue. ...Read more
What are the chances I will eventually get symptoms caused by my wpw? Left ventricular connection. Asymptomatic, diagnosed during a medical. Age20 male
The root cause: The best thing to do is to find the root cause before any procedure. You might benefit from a session of multifunction cardiogram to seek the diagnosis first! Http://en. M.Wikipedia. Org/wiki/multifunction_cardiogram. ...Read more
Are the symptoms of Ventricular fibrillation continuous or they just induce intermittent arrhythmia for a short time (One day) yet repeatedly?
I have ventricular tathycardia but also anxiety, can anxiety cause high blood preasure with symptoms like dizzynes tathycardia weakness, im worried.
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
How relevant are premature ventricular contractions in idiopathic cardiac arrest? Are there any preceding symptoms?
PVCs are common: Rarely PVC hitting badly in ekg in cycle can cause arrythmias including VT v fib. ...Read more
Halter monitor for palps. No pauses, no ventricular ectopy. Symptoms did not correlate with ECG changes 62 BPM bradycardia episodes no answer for palp?
What is the outlook for a person diagnosed at 21 with ventricular septal defect with symptoms (just below80% lung function, neasua, faintness, rapid hr)?
Depends on VSD size: The prognosis for a 21 year old diagnosed with a ventricular septal defect (vsd) depends upon the size of the defect. With a large vsd, there is a greater likelihood that the defect has produced elevated pulmonary artery pressures and vascular resistance that may not be reversible. If the vsd is small, however, the pulmonary artery pressures are likely normal with a good longterm prognosis. ...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
What is the outlook for a ventricular septal defect diagnosed at age 21 with symptoms (just below 80%lung function, nausea, faintness, rapid hrt)?
VSD: The prognosis depends on on the state of the heart muscle and the pulmonary vasculature among other things. That data is not here so answering is difficult. Should discuss with your c, radiologist. St who may have the data. ...Read more
ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?
MVP: Your echocardiogram is not perfectly normal as it shows mild mitral valve prolapse. All other parameters are normal. MVP is very common and very often causes no problems. Nevertheless I recommend periodic follow-up by a cardiologist as the mvp can worsen, cause atrial arrhythmias and atypical chest discomfort. Very often a click can be heard on stethoscope examination of the heart. ...Read more
Have symptoms of MS per Dr. MRI which shows 3mm hyperintense lesions in L periventricular white matter & 2mm focus increased signal in R PVWM. MS?
I have been having MS symptoms for a while. Just got back my MRI and it says I have a 5mm lesion right frontal periventricular white matter. Ms possib
One 5 mm lesion does not fulfill mcdonald's criteria which was designed to define those individuals who are likely to develop ms by mri. Your doctor would probably want further testing including veps (visual evoked potentials), oct (optical coherence tomography), mris of the spine, labs, and possibly a lumbar puncture.
Good luck and well wishes. ...Read more
What does scattered foci off adnormal t/2 flair hyperintensity within the periventricular white matter? Mri was ordered for MS symptoms
Maybe diagnostic: Your doctor needs to counsel you about this result, as one explanation could well be MS, but other causes may be considered. Have a neurologist fully confirm or disconfirm the diagnosis ASAP. ...Read more
An MRI has shown white matter build up in the periventricular area. Without other symptoms of ms, and with a history of diabetes and hypertension, how likely is MS as a diagnosis? Can it just be bp?
Unlikely: These changes usually reflect alterations in the white matter as a result of narrowing of small blood vessels to the white matter. This is called chronic microvascular ischemia. Your history of diabetes and hypertension are likely the cause of these changes but they are commonly seen in the elderly. Ms usually has a different distribution of white matter changes. ...Read more
If I have Right periventricular white matter likely Gliosis can I have symptoms of hand weakness and foot on the same side if it's MS?
No: Doesn't matter whether it's MS or anything else: stroke, tumor, anything: ANY lesion in the right hemisphere causes signs & symptoms on the left. Exceptions are a few left-handers & a VERY tiny proportion of right-handers. Southpaws have either left hemisphere dominance just like righties, or they have so-called mixed dominance. True right hemisphere dominance is exceedingly rare. ...Read more
Minimal right periventricular white matter signal abnormality seen on flair and t2. Tiny punctate focus in the subcortical white matter frontal lobe. Symptoms of joint pain in hands and right leg weak?
Abnormal heart rhyth: It means that the heart is not beating in sinus rhythm. The normal conduction is not present. The person is likely being seen by a cardiologist who will decide how best to treat. ...Read more
Ventricular atrophy: Left ventricular atrophy is a reduction in size of the left ventricle of the heart, the chamber of the heart responsible for pumping freshly oxygenated blood to the rest of the body. People with this condition can experience a number of health complications, and there are treatments available to arrest or reverse the atrophy. ...Read more
