Question: I am 75 years old and just had a EKG 12 Lead.
Came back Left AXIS Anterior Fascicular block
Diffuse Non Specific-T Abnormality
When compared with ECG 8/13/12 Left Anterior Hemi Block
Are these aged related conditions?? That is what my doctor told me.. All my tests came back bad.

Brief Answer:
Yes it is age related change

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome.
This is Dr Sameer, cardiologist.
The axis denotes normal angulation & thickness of heart. With age this can change & thus can be things like Left Anterior hemi block.
Still get a 2D Echo done to see all is normal.
Thanks & take care

My mother is of age 58 and she does not smoke, has never suffered a heart attack, never complained of chest pain but her stress test is positive. We are advised of Thallium Stress Test. Can you please advise what is the difference between Thallium Stress Test and Coronory angiography? Also, should I go for these tests since my mother is reluctant to do those since she is fit and fine right now? Bhavesh Mehta.
