Partial thickness MI (viable) involving basal segments of inferior and inferoseptal walls showing residual ischemia. Tell me its treatment?

Partial thickness MI (viable) involving basal segments of inferior and inferoseptal walls showing residual ischemia. Tell me its treatment?

Seek 2 opinions: One option might be by a cardiologist treating medically to thin the blood and prevent clots. They also might stretch open the blocked artery with angioplasty. 2nd opinion is valuable from a chest surgeon- to see if you might benefit from surgical bypass to bring new blood flow to the locations at risk. ...Read more

Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?

Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal  anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?

What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read more

MRI report shows anterior and inferior Labral tear and bone marrow of the humors head edema what does that mean and treatment options?

Labral tear: The shoulder is a ball and socket type joint. To maintain stability, there is a cartilage circular structure that holds the ball in the socket in some what of a suction cup mechanism. This structure is called the labrum, and it sounds like you have torn it. To maintain stability in the shoulder, surgery is often required which involves an arthroscopic repair if the labrum. ...Read more

Mucosal thickening in the right great than left maxillary & sphenoid sinuses with scattered mucosal disease in ethmoid air cells. What's this mean?

Maybe nothing: The fact that you have scattered mucosal thickening (not necessarily disease) in the sinuses does not necessarily equate to disease. Do you have yellow-green nasal discharge, post nasal discharge, pain or pressure in the face or top of the head? These are the major symptoms of rhino-sinusitis. In other words, are you feeling ill? Check with an ENT doctor. ...Read more

My MRI results for left kneew reveals: mild thinning of the cartilage along the lateral femoral condyle with out full thickness defect or underlying reactive change.  There is mild to moderate thinning of the medial compartment cartilage w/out full thickn

You : You have several reasons for pain based on this report. Where is your pain? Along the inside, front, or back of the knee. Based on the fact that there is mild to moderate thinning of the articular (joint surface) cartilage in the medial (inside) compartment, i assume your partial menisectomy in 2000 was on the inside (medial) aspect of your knee. If that is the case, you have done very well for the past 12 years considering that you are a runner only to have mild thinning! grading of arthritis in an MRI (where most likely you were laying down) is sometimes a little artificial so it is a little hard to tell how bad it really is. You definitely have thinnning, and it is probably a little more advanced in the medial(inside) compartment than for age, although basing this on a report is very subjective. The baker's cyst is located in the back of the knee, so if your pain is in the back, then this is the most likely the culprit. That being said, the baker cyst is a direct result of the joint being irritated, either from the medial meniscus tear or arthritis. Pain from the current meniscus tear should be along the inside of the knee, and it may be associated with instability, locking or catching. Based on this report, you should see a sports medicine professional to discuss your options. Good luck!. ...Read more

What's the difference between incomplete double (3 chamber heart) vs. A complete double (4 chamber heart)?

What's the difference between incomplete double (3 chamber heart) vs. A complete double (4 chamber heart)?

Heart: Normally your heart has 4 chambers or compartments-two atria and two ventricles. If you have a 3 chamber heart that usually means that there is an opening between the two chambers, either the atria or ventricle, making the heart only 3 chambers and there is also a mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. Depending on the size, location and severity surgery may be needed. ...Read more
