I have attached two ECGs, one from recently and the other from last year.
Please discuss at length with no holding back on technospeak as to whether the latest test shows any improvement. Any information is appreciated like the severity of infarction, estimated time ago it happened, etc. It would interest me greatly to know whether the infarction occurred 55 years ago with a diagnosed rheumatic fever. Is it possible it was not rheumatic fever? I suffered a fall a few hours before the symptoms. No streptococcus involved condition. I was 11 and am now 66 years old.
Thank you doctor,

These changes can be seen in rheumatic heart disease, but they would have not been reverted. Since your latest ECG has no such changes, probably it has been an acute myocardial infarction at that time.
