Not enough blood: Inferolateral generally refers to the location in the heart. Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body - I am assuming you are referring to your heart in this case - so the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. This can be caused by atherosclerosis or narrowing of the blood flow in the heart.
