Early repolarization (electrical impulses contracting heart ventricles) is a common electrocardiographic finding that affects 1 to 5% of persons. Although the condition is usually considered benign, it has a potential suggested by experimental studies to cause arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeats), but clinical evidence is lacking.

I received this report recently from an EKG and I will not be seeing my cardiologosit for another few weeks ... can anyone tell me what this all means?  Yes I do ocassionally get pains in my chest and left arm as a result of exertion or stress, and sometimes tense situations.. can anyone give me any insight?


Detail from the heart Studio: " QR D2-F QRS D3 R high V2 QRV5-V6, without significant alterations of repolarization (inferior and/or back inferior). All the rest, normal. The explanations could be an infart secuel, but should be checked by more studios.

Infarct secuel possibly is a condition that has damaged heart cells.  QR, etc. are wave forms that indicate left ventricle heartbeat.  V5-V6 indentify the leads (electrodes) of the EKG test.

For some terminolgy, polarize heart cells indicates an electrical potential exists between conductive pathways.  Repolarization indicates the potential between polarized cells have discharged and that causes the heart contractions....no significant alterations means the electrical pathways are functioning normally and electrical impulse are coducting normally.  Usually if there is a prior infarct there can be an interuption or an alteration to repolarize myocyte heart cells.

Bottom line there may be some heart cell damage but it doesn't appear to be causing any problems with repolarization.  The wave form of interest for a prior infarct would be the ST wave form that is elevated or depressed.  An ST wave form can be abnormal  for may benign causes, and the EKG requires other tests and symptoms to make a diagnosis.

I hope this helps, and if you have any other questions or comments you are welcome to respond.  Thanks for sharing.  Take care.
