Atrial enlargement on my EKG

I had an EKG done last week. I peaked at results printed by the computer. they said borderline EKG with possible atrium enlargement . my doctor didn't mention anything was wrong.

Atrial enlargement can occur in any condition in which the atrial pressures are elevated. Causes include high blood pressureheart valve diseases and heart failure. Computer interpretation of EKGs are usually incorrect. For that you need Doctor. Also, you cannot diagnose atrial enlargement with a EKG, your need a echocardiogram.

You can calculate here whether you are at risk for heart disease:

Hope this helps,
Dr T
