Anteroseptal: Anteroseptal myocardial infarction is usually caused by occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery. This cuts off blood flow to the anteroseptal muscle and infarction(death)of that muscle. We call this an anteroseptal MI or infarction

What is an abnormal condition called pituitary infarction?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Laura Arbogast
Internal Medicine 19 years experience
Sheehan's Syndrome: Sheehan's syndrome or pituitary infarction is rare in developed countries because of good obstetrical care. It happens after a delivery with a lot of blood loss so the pituitary gland in the brain does not get enough blood flow and part or all of it stops working. This gland supplies hormones that regulate many of the body's functions such as heart rate and metabolic rate.

What is the definition of non-q-wave infarction?

Dr. Martin Bress
Internal Medicine 50 years experience
See answer.: A non Q wave myocardial infarction is an electrocariographic phenomenon. It usually implies a heart attack with less extensive damage than a Q wave one which implies damage from the inner wall to the outer wall of the heart. The findings on the electrocardiogram can be variable and must be correlated with the patient's symptoms and blood tests which confirm damage to the heart muscle.

Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 44 years experience
Death from no blood: When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; "stroke") is called "infarction".
