What abnornalities will an ekg show on a patient with undiagnosed Marfans Syndrome that suggests further testing may be necesary?
Ok, so the major thing you think about in Marfans is the possibility of Aortic dissection. Thats blood splitting through the aorta (big blood vessel coming out of the heart). Now, ECG's are a terrible way to diagnose an dissection as all they will show is what we call "ischemia" that means poor blood flow to the heart. Problem is ischemia is seen in smokers, the obese and tons of other situations.
What are the alternatives to surgery for tennis elbow?
hi And welcome to HCM. The most important part of treatment is tendon rest. A long rest from aggravating activity allows the small tears in the tendon to heal. Surgery is a last resort if other treatment isn't helpful. As soon as you notice pain, use ice or cold packs for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. Pain killers but under medical guidance. Stopping activities that may irritate the tendon.
