My Dr. is not the most knowledgeable Dr. out there. She said there was somthing abnormal in my ECG but does not think its serious. In the report it said something about persistent juvenile pattern. Anyone know what this means. She didn't and is now sending me for a stress test.
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Persistent juvenile pattern is something physiological and you donât need to undergo a stress test for the same. In this, thereâs T wave inversion from leads V1 to V3 in the ECG. This pattern is typically seen in young children and sometimes this pattern can persist in adulthood. This is much more common in females compared to males.
