Heart attack: Hello. It means that the systolic function (when the heart contracts to send blood to all the organism) is diminished, which also caused that the muscle on the heart grown to make up for it (septal hypertrophy). If you've shown this results to your cardiologist, the medicine they gave you is most likely to help your heart function in the best way possible.
