What Does It Mean When You Have Non Dilated Left Ventricle
Explain dilated left ventricle in reference to lvh. Can the ventricle walls increase exterior thickness out and interior thicknessin at the same time
Echo said I had moderately dilated left ventricle another said it was not a few months later. Still get possible LVH on ekg. Don't know what to do.
Test Result: Sometimes a test measurement will look abnormal on one evaluation and then normal on another simply due to minor differences in operator skill, type of machine used, the interpreting MD's skills, or simple errors. Test Results always need to be interpreted with consideration of the individual patient's issues in conjunction with a physical examination and correlation with all available data.See 1 more doctor answer
In addition to mild hypokinesis of the left ventricle when ejection fraction is 48% and left atrium is moderately dilated, what could that indicate?
EF: What this means is that there is a region of your heart that is not moving properly. This likely secondary to impaired irrigation from a possible stenosis vessel. Depending on the reason you could have diastolic/systolic dysfunction. Giving the dilated atrium. You should likely be on bblockers, acei, Aspirin,
What does a moderately dilated left ventricle signify? Normal systolic function, EF 55-60%, wall thickness normal. Mitral/tricuspid regurgitation present.
How serious is subaortic vsd (1.1 cm)? The mitral and tricuspid valves show redundant leaflets with evidences of prolapse and the left ventricle is slightly dilated.
What is a "fixed photopenia in the anteroseptal segment of the left ventricle" mean? I had a nuclear stress test done.
Not enough info: There's not enough information to comment. It can be a breast artifact. If there's no wall motion abnormality, it's very likely an artifact.
PET scan said: On FDG images, there is diffuse FDG uptake throughout the left ventricle wall including the septum. What does that mean?
Need more informatio: You need to give us your medical history and explain the reason for doing a PET scan? Did you have chest pain or suspicion of heart disease? . What did your doctor tell you about the meaning of your PET scan report? FDG uptake is normal for the heart....lack of it might indicate a scar or damage to the heart muscle...but you do not seem to have that problem.
I just had an echo stress test that indicated the left ventricle cavity size was decreased, what does that mean?
More info needed: BUT if you are saying at the end of the stress test, "LV cavity size decreased" then that is NORMAL. Augmentation of LV systolic function and decrease LV cavity size is normal with excercise and what is supposed to happen when we need to pump out more blood to our skeletal muscles.
PET scan said for sarcoidosis: On FDG images, there is diffuse FDG uptake throughout the left ventricle wall including the septum. What does that mean?
Ask your doc...: FDG-enhanced PET/CT is to show the unusual increase or decrease in glucose metabolism at certain areas of the body especially inside a mass - before or after drug treatment. Based on the features and distribution of FDG imaging enhancement as defined from experience, a diagnosis can be drawn; of course, biopsy is ultimate means for confirmation. So, ask doc - treating or radiologist timely.
My mother's report says "Mild provocable ischemia noted in apico-anterolateral and mid-anterolateral segment of left ventricle." What does this mean?
Provocable ischemia: Means induced poor or lack of blood flow to a particular organ. In this case, a particular area of the heart. Usually occurs when the coronary arteries, the arteries that feed the heart, are clogged or compressed. Typically worsens with exertion, when the arteries are clogged. Reduction in cholesterol & BP by eating healthier helps as well as if serious disease, stent placement to keep flow goingSee 1 more doctor answer
What does hypokinesia of intraventricular septum apical. Concentric remodeling of the left ventricle w/segmental wall motion abnormality mean?
Consequences: Description is very typical reflection for consequences of long term uncontrolled high cholesterol and blood pressure. I also guess that you might have had heart attack in past. (silent infarct?). Practically this mean that your heart is no longer as efficient pumping blood through your body as it used to be. You definitely need to be under care and see your doctor regularly to avoid worsening.See 1 more doctor answer
What does "incidental superficial left ventricle pontine tegmentum tiny 3mm t2 hyper intensity in keeping with perivascular space mean on MRI of head?
Dye intesification: That 3mm area in brain takes the contrast dye more than rest of the brain tissue.
What is small antero septal ischemia vs. Attenutaion? Does it mean a heart attack? What is a left ventricle hypertrophy?
D dimer 0.93, found 4.5 taaw/ct angio/w/contrast, echo, mildthickening of left ventricle&atrium, slight regurgitation of all heart valves. Mean?
Need more info: Making a diagnosis is more than looking at numbers. It takes physical exam and knowing the medical history. The best person to give you the answer you seek is the cardiologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Several: They symptoms of left ventricular failure include, shortness of breath (sob) and fatigue and weakness. There can be increased sob with activity. Other symptoms include orthopnea (inability to lie flat b/c sob), edema (swelling), frequent urination at night, waking suddenly with severe sob (pnd), and sometimes chest pain.
Not well understood: The underdevelopment of the left sided heart structures begins early in fetal life and is likely related to decreased blood flow through the left side of the heart. Gene mutations have been identified in sporadic cases, and, after having a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, there is a higher risk for subsequent children with the condition suggesting that inherited factors play a role.See 1 more doctor answer
