Are people with acutely recovered cerebral ischemia more unstable?

Dr. Louis Grenzer
Cardiology 55 years experience
Depends: Well unstable compared to whom. If you have recovered, we ordinarily would say you are stable but anytime a person has had ischemia, they are more likely to get a recurrence than a well person. And what is the ischemia secondary to would be an important question. Has the cause underlying the ischemia been corrected?

What are the consequences of a small area of ischemia at the apex of the left ventricle?

Dr. Charles Jost
Cardiology 36 years experience
Reversible?: It depends. Is the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test.Such things seen on a perfusion scan are often referred to as apical defects.That said, along with other indications, i might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The consequences could not be determined without a cath or ccta.
