Electrocardiogaphy (ECG) revealed right axis deviation and right bundle branch block along with atrial fibrillation and Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE) showed abnormal valves (mitral stenosis with calcification and tricuspid regurgitation) and dilated cardiac chambers.
The EKG revealed a normal sinus rhythm, slight right axis deviation indicated by tall R-waves in V1 (also suggestive of right ventricular hypertrophy), an incomplete right bundle branch block, and a crochetage sign (a notch in the R-waves of the inferior leads).
The common ECG changes seen in the present study were- Right axis deviation (28%), Incomplete RBBB (12%) and P Pulmonale (34%).
DIAGNOSIS: Atrial flutter/fibrillation with a rapid (111 beats/ minutes) and variable ventricular response; right axis deviation of the QRS complex (+124[degrees]); a tall monophasic R wave in lead V1 that was taller than the R wave in V6 and was accompanied by a negative T wave; a tall R wave in lead aVR; and deep S waves in leads I, V5, V6.
8) Left axis deviation is seen with hypertrophy of the left ventricle, whereas right axis deviation is seen with enlargement of the right ventricle.
The present study shows the ECG changes that attributed to the acute RV pressure loading states (Premature atrial contraction, right axis deviation, indeterminate axis, incomplete RBBB, late R in aVR, qR in V1) may be more prevalent in patients with chronic pressure loading states.
Electrocardiography (ECG) showed sinus rhythm with features of extreme right axis deviation with absent left ventricular forces in leads V4 to V6, (Fig.
Clinical assessment of patients with possible PAH includes an electrocardiogram, which may show changes in the right ventricle, including right axis deviation, right atrial enlargement, and right ventricular hypertrophy, Dr.
ECG showed right axis deviation but no right or left ventricular hypertrophy.
Clinical assessment of the patient with possible PAH includes an electrocardiogram, which may show changes in the right ventricle, including right axis deviation, right atrial enlargement, and right ventricular hypertrophy, said Dr.
ECG on lead I demonstrates right axis deviation along with a negative deflection of the P waves and QRS complexes.
