Left atrial enlargement and Left ventricular hypertrophy
I'm a 40 year old woman who recently had an EKG which showed a possible left atrial enlargement and left ventricular hypertrophy. I have borderline high blood pressure which is more than likely anxiety related. My doctor says my EKG was "normal". Is there any need for me to be concerned?

EKGs are not a very reliable way to dx either an enlarged LA or LVH. If your doctor was concerned he would have ordered an echo which would show any heart abnormailities with much more accuracy. You can always ask for one if you would like some reassurance. The fact that he did not order one must mean he was not too concerned, many EKGs are read by computer and open to an inaccurate interpretation, the doctor most likely read it differently.

Good luck,

Jon
