Heart attack lv septal and anterior wall 10 weeks ago. Ef went from 25 to 50, hypokinesis severe to moderate. Could they normalize eventually?

Heart attack lv septal and anterior wall 10 weeks ago. Ef went from 25 to 50, hypokinesis severe to moderate. Could they normalize eventually?

Possible: But likely some scar and slight residual. Stay with the good choices, nonsmoking, cardiac rehab, and your meds. Followup with echo at z6 months likely. ...Read more

Hypokinesis (Definition)

Decreased mobility of the walls of the heart than the normal force& speed to eject the normal fraction of the blood from the heart to supply all tissues is hypokinesisno mobility of the wall/part of wall is akinesis -worser than hk. Both hk and ak can involve a part of the heart muscle in the walls of the chambers as well as in the septum separating the chambers of the ...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%?

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

EF 60%, LVSF low normal. Apical and anterior hypokinesis cannot be excluded. Minimal MR and trace AR. Mild TR, mild PR. Is this concerning?

EF 60%, LVSF low normal. Apical and anterior hypokinesis cannot be excluded. Minimal MR and trace AR. Mild TR, mild PR. Is this concerning?

2 things: 1. A relatively normal EF bit with possibly some focal hypokinesis may suggest ischemic heart disease. 2. The other reported findings on your heart valves are pretty benign. ...Read more

My echo says the following: " there is lvh with diastolic dysfunction and 57% lv ef. There is inferior wall hypokinesis ". What does this mean ?

My echo says the following: " there is lvh with diastolic dysfunction and  57% lv  ef. There  is inferior wall hypokinesis ". What does this mean ?

Explanation: Lvh left ventricular hypertrophy which is thickening of the heart muscle wall. Diastolic dysfunction.. There is systole which is the squeezing phase and diastolic which is the relaxing phase. Lvef left ventricular, ejection fraction is a calculation of heart squeeze 55-65%!is in the normal range at 57% the bottom heart wall is called inferior and the hypokinesis is a part not the best squeeze. ...Read more

Normal lv size with hypokinesis of the basal segments of anterior, inferior and inferior septum, otherwise preserved global systolic function & ef 56?

Normal lv size with hypokinesis of the basal segments of anterior, inferior and inferior septum, otherwise preserved global systolic function &  ef 56?

Echocardiagram: 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. ...Read more

Hi ,I had a heart attack three months ago, I want to know my echo is normal or no ? EF =54% severe hypokinesis of inferior wall , moderate MR

Hi ,I had a heart attack three months ago,  I want to know 
my echo is normal or no ? EF =54% severe hypokinesis of inferior wall , moderate MR

EF is depressed: and not normal. THE most important thing is to avoid another myocardial infarction. Follow your cardiologist's advice, because next one might be fatal. ...Read more
