Hi. I wnet for apre op ekg last week and it showed exactly the same thing. I'm now in the process of being seen by another cardiologist within my insurance plan, and I'll also get a stress echo test. Did you ever proceed with the surgery? I'm 56 and in excellent health with absolutely no health issues. I've never had a heart problem or pain. My elective surgery is scheduled for next week Friday and I assume I won't be having the surgery. Just curious how that got resolved for you, and if you got any futher clarification. The last EKG i had was in 1994 and that was normal. Thanks.
ST segment elevation may indicate myocardial infarction with leads V1-V3 (area of infarction...interoseptal, wall that separates chambers).
An elevation of >1mm and longer than 80 milliseconds following the J-point. This measure has a false positive rate of 15-20% (which is slightly higher in women than men) and a false negative rate of 20-30%.
Requires further testing if there are related signs and symptoms. False positive can be due to medication, artefacts, etc.
