Anterior Wall Hypokinesis
Heart attack lv septal and anterior wall 10 weeks ago. Ef went from 25 to 50, hypokinesis severe to moderate. Could they normalize eventually?
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Global Hypokinesis.EF 39%.Large area of fixed defect in Anterior,Septal & Inferior wall.no lung uptake.RV appears normal. Abnormal Dilated LV with large fixed defect with multiple wall motion abnormalities. Put on Cardivlol & listrophil. now have increase
LVSF low normal. Apical and anterior hypokinesis cannot be excluded. Minimal MR and trace AR. Mild TR, mild PR. Is this cause for concern?
EF 60%, LVSF low normal. Apical and anterior hypokinesis cannot be excluded. Minimal MR and trace AR. Mild TR, mild PR. Is this concerning?
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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
I recently had a stress test and the only thing noted was lv wall motion: moderate septal hypokinesis. Is this something to worry about?
