I was detected with an abnormal ECG ST elevation V1-V3 , T inv V3-V6 at 40 yrs of age.Got 2d Echo, cardiac MRI, TMT, CAG all tests done indicated normal. Now I am 47 yrs, again got my ECG tested and found same abnormality. In 2 D Echo done EF 77% Conc LVH, No obstruction,No wall abnormality, Normal biventricular function.But when I got the TMT done results went abnormal, I personally felt no pain and discomfort on increase of activity. The doc stopped the machine. I walk regularly 4 km in morning and 4 km in the evening. Mother died of LVF at the age of 70 yrs. She had BP. I have mild BP at times. Am taking ayurvedic medicines for that. I want med opinion since I was told that such abnormality is rare. I hope there is no serious condition in the Heart .
Hi, the left ventricular hypertrophy can cause dynamic outflow obstruction. Patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (i.e.asymmetric septal hypertrophy) may show obstruction to left ventricular
outflow under basal conditions or with provocative maneuvers. This could account for the abnormal TMT. According to studies done, dual chamber pacing with a short atrioventricular (AV) interval has emerged as a therapeutic approach in dynamic left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. So, please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
