Your doctor needs to discuss the results of this test with you, in light of known disease, age, and other factors. The term "hypokinesis" is indicative of deficient muscle contraction, causing less than optimal pumping action of the heart muscle. This may be due to neuro and/or vascular deficiencies. Talk to your doctor.

How do you treat mild septal hypokinesis?

May not

require therapy. This just means the wall of the heart between the pumping chambers may not be functioning perfectly. If the rest of the heart is ok probably not a concern
