I have left axis deviation and sinus tachycardia. But echo-cardiogram shown everything is fine and normal. Is left axis deviation a serious sign. Please advice. actually i am worried about it.Thanks....Msin
Left axis deviation is more common than you think, and it depends on the severity of it as to whether your Cardiologist feels further investigation is warranted. It can be the result of things such as high blood pressure or a leaky valve, but also a number of other things. If your echo has ruled out overly enlarged left ventricle/ thickened heart muscle/ valve leaks/ scar tissue etc, then I very much doubt if this is a problem to be concerned about.
