  1. Several years ago my husband went to the VAMC received an examination to be included on the "Agent Orange Registry" - he had already been denied sc and an appeal had been filed. I located the report and EKG that was done that day by stopping at the local VAMC FOIA room and lo and behold, there is an EKG from that day indicating up on the top bar "Cannot rule out Inferior Infarct, age undetermined" and abnormal ECG I remember seeing this EKG before, long ago and pulled my copy out and this language was not on top. Whenever we asked his docs at the VA how his heart is doing, they all said "okay, within normal limits" The emergency room he was taken to early last year did an EKG and told us about the "inferior infarction" - age undetermined Took the report to his VA doc and she did another .... this was 4 days after the ER visit. The report indicated that compared to the EKG done at the VAMC 2 years prior, "The QT has lengthened" nothing else was indicated I think about what you went through Berta and immediately made an appt for my husband with his private cardiologist and we're dropping these four EKG's off at their office today so she can review them. Interestingly, I just found another piece of evidence ...... he saw the private cardiologist in May '04 on a referral for chest pain. Findings were a right bundle branch blockage. The Agent Orange Registry EKG was done in Sept. '04. Seems logical to me the silent heart attack occurred somewhere between those two dates. AO examiner also ordered a chest X-ray and there was left ventricular hypertrophy found to be present. I'd be most interested to hear any comments or ? that anyone may offer.
