I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall , what dose she means?

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides. These have anatomical names: anterior posterior septal the anterior-septal is at a junction. Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise( induced) or a chemical. It may require medication and even surgery to eliminate. ...Read more

What is reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall?

What is reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall?

Partial blockage: "Reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" likely came from a nuclear stress test report. It suggests that part of the heart does not get enough oxygen when stressed (example: during exercise), but does get enough oxygen when at rest. This can happen if there is a partial blockage of an artery.Symptom may be chest pressure or pain when walking. Follow-up with the doctor is very important. ...Read more

What does "reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" mean?

Ischemia: This term is a desciption of the fact that the front and left sides of the left ventricle are not getting enough blood during stress situations. The left ventricle is the main part of the heart. The term reversible means that during stress this part of the heart does not get enough blood and it implies that the artery going to that part of the heart has a blockage. ...Read more

What causes anterior septal ischemia?

Reduced blood supply: The septum of the heart is the wall inside the heart that separates the heart chambers from each other. Ischemia in this area indicates narrowing in one of the arteries to this muscle area, usually from hardening of the arteries. It indicates some degree of heart disease. You should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. ...Read more

What is lateral wall ischemia?

Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed. Lateral ischemia means that this is happening to the left sidewall of the pumping chamber of the heart. This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle. ...Read more

What does Ischemia- lateral lead LVH+ mean ?

I assume: You mean your EKG suggest lateral ischemia and LVH(which is short for left ventricular hypertrophy). Interpreting ischemic changes is difficult without knowing the history behind the EKG, but from what you mention it appears that you have some changes on your EKG that "could" be related to coronary disease. LVH on EKG suggests that the left side of your heart "could" be thickened. ...Read more

Said "provocable ischemia of interior (anterior?

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read more

Anterior wall ischemia is dangerous? Is it curable?

Anterior wall ischemia is dangerous? Is it curable?

Yes: Anterior wall ischemia means there is a risk of having a heart attack. Treatment at this point is to see a cardiologist for full evaluation of the blood supply to the heart. Depending on the findings, treatment could be diet, medication, angioplasty with a balloon catheter, or even an operation. ...Read more

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is anterior wall ischemia?

Insuff. blood flow: This is a way of saying that part of the heart is not getting enough blood (ischemia). To help with localizing what part of the heart is affected, we divide the heart into (typically) six walls. This helps tie together stress test information with angiogram information so that we can target the right arteries for treatment if necessary. The anterior wall is the "front" part of the heart. ...Read more
