Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart.
Dr. David Fertel
Vascular Surgery 35 years experience
Lack of blood flow: By inferior, i suppose you mean inferior wall ischemia... Which would be decreased blood flow to the inferior wall of your heart.
