What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

Posterior wall?: You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve. But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery. ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

St-t wave changes,consider inferolateral ischemia on ecg, echo shows heart good. Doctor said are few heart interruptions. What means? 27 yrs. Thanks

St-t wave changes,consider inferolateral ischemia on ecg, echo shows heart good. Doctor said are few heart interruptions. What means? 27 yrs. Thanks

ST-T wave changes: ST-T wave changes often are non-specific and may not mean anything. There are some ST-T changes that are the hallmark of heart attack, but I doubt this is your case as you echo was normal. Modern computerized ECG machines will always say "consider ... ischemia" with any ST-T wave abnormality. ...Read more

My resting ECG report shows t wave abnormality, consider anterior ischemia and incomplete rbbb. Should i be concerned? I see a cardio in 2 weeks.

ECG abnormality: T wave abnormalities are usually non-specific, especially if you are an otherwise healthy young woman. The computer read-out should always be confirmed and checked by the physician, so you will have more specific info after you get the opinion of the cardiologist. Of course, if you have cardiac symptoms like chest pain with exertion then a more urgent eval is a good idea. ...Read more

I am 23 yrs old.My ECG reprt shws inferior lateral ischemia .. I have done Eco . Eco reprt shows LVH. Dctr said its conginital.wht I do nw?

Cardiology consult: Left ventricular hypertrophy on echo and an abnormal ECG should be eval'd by cardiology who can help decide if this is truly abnormal or if it is due to an "athlete's heart", or a normal variant. A detailed family history will be needed -- be prepared. Patients are often nervous at the time of a consult. Bring a list of questions, and another person or pen & paper to take notes. ...Read more

Had ECG doctor says it's normal but I noticed it read Inferior Infarct and no acute ischemia?What does this mean?Should I be concerned?

Had ECG doctor says it's normal but I noticed it read Inferior Infarct and no acute ischemia?What does this mean?Should I be concerned?

The EKG computers: are tilted to analyze for abnormality rather than normalcy. The Computer probably picked up some subtle or insignificant change that is not clinically relevant and indicated it to make the doctor aware. His/her interpretation supersedes anything the computer says. If he said normal than that is what it is. ...Read more

Took an echo that showed normal lv size with concentric remodeling. Normal functioning valves. However my ecg shows potential lvh?

Took an echo that showed normal lv size with concentric remodeling. Normal functioning valves. However my ecg shows potential lvh?

Congruent findings: If ECG mentions possible or potential LVH and then echocardiogram shows "concentric remodeling", probably "concentric LVH", these findings make sense. ECG is not the modality to diagnose LVH, echocardiogram is. Last if these are your findings, treat the underlying cause which is high blood pressure, to prevent long term risk of hypertensive heart disease. ...Read more

If an ECG shows that I have old inferior infarction, can the abnormality on the ECG be from mitral valve repair?

If an ECG shows that I have old inferior infarction, can the abnormality on the ECG be from mitral valve repair?

Not likely: It's a possibility, but not very likely that an artery can be injured during a mitral valve repair. Comparing ecg's preoperative to postoperative could shed some light on this, but to really determine the cause of any change would require a coronary angiogram. ...Read more

Cardiologist expained from recent ECG a very slightly rightward axis just as it had done before.And was otherwise completely normal .Significance?Could this be due to my Mitral Valve repair i wanted a clear idea of what this means.

Cardiologist expained from recent ECG a very slightly rightward axis just as it had done before.And was otherwise completely normal .Significance?Could this be due to my Mitral Valve repair i wanted a clear idea of what this means.

There are a number: of reasons for a "slight right axis" on EKG but the most usual is "NORMAL FOR THE INDIVIDUAL." IT is unlikely to be related to your MV repair and has absolutely no clinical significance cardiac wise. Potentially it could reflect pulmonary issues such as longstanding COPD or asthma. In your case it is just the way you were made. Relax. ...Read more

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?

Normal sinus rhythm with borderline intraventricular conduction delay and secondary ST changes. No acute ischemia.DR impressions on ecg. This means?

ECG interpretation : The "no acute ischemia" part means that there is no heart attack occurring at the moment. The rest really implies that the ECG tracing was not perfect in its appearance. This could be nothing, or it could be related to true heart disease. This type of EKG would need to be interpreted in context: symptoms, physical limitation, other testing. ...Read more

I was having chest pain since morning and docter took an ECG n diagnosed as septal ischemia what should i do?

Cardiology...: Evaluation by a Cardiologist is of outmost importance at this time. I am not sure if you were referred but this should be the next step. For now I would figure you have been prescribed medications while you get other tests done. If you develop a new event of chest pain you should go to the emergency room for prompt treatment. ...Read more

3 yrs ago I had an MI; LAD was 98% blocked. Stented and feel fine.  Will this event cause chronic ECG "abnormal/consider ant. ischemia" warning?

ECG changes after MI: The electrocardiogram may be permanently affected by a significant myocardial infarction. It sounds like your tracing may have T wave inversion or ST segment changes. It would be helpful to review the series of ECG tracings. It is very good news that you feel fine; whether to have a stress test or other test to check further is debatable and should be decided by a cardiologist with all your data ...Read more

Please tell me, could a defective valve be detected by an ecg?

Please tell me, could a defective valve be detected by an ecg?

Yes, but no: An ECG can check the changes in the heart and the way it conducts electricity. This also can see when the atria or ventricles are abnormal in size, but this is a later finding and also not very sensitive. Valve defects are best seen on an echocardiogram (ultrasound). Despite this, it would be first important for a good history and physical exam to see if there's a problem in the first place! ...Read more

What is anterior ischemia (+ chest pain) & how accurate is an ECG (dr read results & referred to cardiologist) anything to be super concerned about?

Yes: Anterior ischemia means forward [anterior] heart muscle is not getting enough oxygen. This is representative of angina and ultimately heart attack. Ecgs are good, but can miss problems. They are not always easy to interpret. There are additional more thorough tests if there is any concern regarding heart muscle ischemia, ex: exercise stress test, heart catheterization to name the most common. ...Read more

How dangerous is an ECG tracing- right nundle branch block septal wall ischemia for an 8 yo/ female child? She's having squeezing chestpain recently.

Possibly Dangerous: I am a pediatric cardiologist. I agree with the other answer--i would strongly recommend you take your child to see a pediatric cardiologist as soon as possible if you haven't already. The diagnosis of bundle branch block and ischemia is serious, but it depends where it is coming from. Machines are not good at interpreting pediatric ecgs. Again, please see a pediatric cardiologist asap. ...Read more

Valve (Definition)

A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
