well ten years ago i was diagnosed with a regurge, im 32 yrs 100 lb female. today i went and got a EKG for chest pain. it states borderline left.axis deviation. QRS axis (-15, -29] what does this mean! thank you
left axis deviation on an EKG is nothing to be concerned about. it is a measure of the electrical circuit, and just means that slightly more forces are headed leftward than rightward. in isolation, not clinically meaningful.
if you have aortic regurgitation, there could be some dilation of the left ventricle in response to blood flowing backward (regurgitating) through the valve. this could explain the left axis deviation. might not be unreasonable to have a follow up echocardiogram.
