Hi. I have a long history of occassional palpitations (PACs), which have become more frequent and occur most days in recent months, also with occasional episodes of atrial fibrillation. My EKG is normal. My recent annual echo shows, for the first time, a finding of mild to moderate anteroseptal and mild mid-anterior hypokinesis. EF is 72%, other measures are within normal, except mild LAE (4.1 cm) and mild MR, TR, PR regurgitation. I'm scheduled for a thallium stress test next week to evaluate the hypokinesis. Should I be concerned about the new hypokinesis findng? And, can it have anything to do with the increase in PACs?
Thanks in advance.
