Heart & Cardiology/newsheart
Echo showed pseudonormal ventricle. diastoylic filling. All chambers of the heart were normal with the exception of left ventricle enlargement of 1.2cmn. Moderate diastolic dys. normal systolic function, no stenosis. Heart rate of 123 beats per minutes
at time of the echo. Could the high rate affect the echo and diastoylic fillings. Have walked nearly everyday for 10 years. 3 to 4 miles. Could that affect the left. Ventricle thickness. Have had anxiety for 2 years.Very upset at time of echo.
With low blood pressure, could my dysfunction improve? By the way my left atrium is normal size diameter 3.4, area 12.4. I am a 65 year old male with no symptoms. Thanks. Taking 50 mgs. Of metoprololl
The echo shows a minor abnormality that at this point has no clinical significance. The study should be used as a baseline for comparison with future echocardiograms.
Hope this helps,
