Pages: 1 2 3 Showing 1 - 20 of 50 for abnormal ejection fraction. (0.002 seconds)


... l and your ef to increase.The short answer to the high EF is that your left ventricle is not filling correctly, therefore your left ventricle is pumping a higher fraction of the total amount of blood entering it. ... (13 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)
... My 23 year old daugther had an stress echo 4 years ago due to a heart murmer. The result was normal with ejection fraction of 60. ... (1 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. The result was frequent PAC's....almost trigeminy, with every 3rd beat being a PAC. I became worried because these occurances started to be symptomatic, with me feeling weak and short of...

... 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)

... There could be left ventricle hypertrophy, abnormal wall thickness, or dilated left ventricle! Worst case scenario. ... (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)
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)
... 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)
... ft and right Ventricle function at the lower limit of normal but with increased volume. No focal wall motion abnormality or wall thinning. No myocardial edema or abnormal delayed enhancement. No evidence of pericardial disease. ... (19 replies)
... I've had permanent A-Fib for over 25 years. My atria are in a constant erratic state. The combination of Coreg (Carvedilol), 25mg bid, and Digoxin .125mg; keeps my heart beating well enough to maintain an Ejection Fraction (EF) of around 60. I also take 3mg of Warfarin each day to protect against stroke. I am never aware of my permanent A-Fib. My heart usually beats pretty... (8 replies)

... g shows the distribution of a radiotracer throughout the left ventricle. Any areas not receiving adequate blood flow can be easily seen. The ventricle volume and ejection fraction are also determined. Images are taken again at rest. The test is an easy one to have compared to others. ... (8 replies)
