Heart Disease

Two ECG's showing probable posterior infarct. My physician does not seem concerned as I am 45 years old. After doctor saw I was concerned now has recommended a stress echo that he feels will show nothing and I am perfectly fine.  Both grandfather's had significant heart problems-including multiple bypass surgeries.

Hi there,
Posterior wall infarcts are always associated with inferior wall infarcts. It can lead to anginal pain symptoms. Few other conditions can cause a similar ECG picture like right ventricular hypertrophy, right ventricle infarct etc.You may need additional investigations like cardiac catheterization to detect the flow of the left circumflex coronary artery.2 D echocardiogram may be needed to detect if there was any posterior wall hypokinesia.If you are not convinced by your doctors opinion it is best to take a second opinion and get your doubts clarified.
Best of luck and regards!
