... My dad had a heart attack and quadruple bypass his last echo said his ejection fraction was 50-55%. My mom has cardiac ischemia with a cath procedure scheduled next week, but her recent echo said her EF was 66%. Im 32. Female. 58 125lbs. Active lifestyle. Ive been having some major fatigue and HPs etc Holter Monitor study done and showed nothing to terribly... (4 replies)

... An LV ejection fraction of 50 percent or lower is considered reduced. Experts vary in their opinion about an ejection fraction between 50 and 55 percent, and some would consider this a "borderline" range. ... (6 replies)
... it says left ventricle- baseline the left ventricle is normal in size there is normal left ventricular wall thickness left ventricle systolic function is moderately reduced at rest left ventricle- peak with exercise all segments improved, but the improvement was not dramatic. the heart rate during the images was submaximal. In recovery there was brief sinus... (9 replies)
... Hello all, I am a 23 year old male (I know, too young for this stuff) and I work for EMS. I started to feel palpatations and an irregular heartbeat and put myself on the monitor at work.

Abnormal ekg?
Jun 30, 2006
... I have very extensive collaterals running right-left from the RCA towards the LAD. These were in response to a chronic total occlusion in my proximal LAD that for all I know, I had been living with for years. However, my MI was in the proximal RCA, above much of the collateral vessels. Plus, at the time, I just thought I had bad indigestion, and it actually went away a... (9 replies)
... ested that I have an echogram and stress test. I went to the ER because my pulse was very high and I felt faint. I didn't have a heart attack. My stress test was abnormal as well, so the cardiologist sent me for a nuclear scan and echogram. ... (5 replies)
... Echocardiogram with contrast. Look for a cardiologist who specializes in womens heart disease. I am on amlodipine, isosorbide mononitrate to control my heart rate and nitroglycerin for angina while deciding on bypass surgery or not. (13 replies)
... How were your blockages finally found at Loma Linda? Have you had treatment? If so, what? I am having chest pain every day, shortness of breath, lightheadedness. I had an abnormal echo (basal inferior wall hypkinesis). Then had a myocardial perfusion scan, a CT scan, a cardiac MRI, and finally the cardiac catherization. All they will say is that I do have "mild" hypokinesis... (13 replies)

... ST segment depression is always an abnormal finding, although often nonspecific.I think RVCD might stand for right ventricle conduction disorder. ... (13 replies)
... R.M., I sympathize with your conundrum. EKG's and stress test imply ischemia while catheter angiography denies it. Ejection Fraction of 53% is weak but not seriously so. I wouldn't worry too much if the pain is not brought on by exercise. Pain in left center of chest could be a bronchial irritation caused by smoking. As an ex-smoker, I know that smoker's bronchitis is... (5 replies)

Cardiomyopathy

... Hi Sara, Wow you never had any symptoms? It's to bad you can't play sports now. That really stinks. What do you do to control it?
