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?
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a cardiac catheratization in 1999 and there was a finding of hypokinesis of the basil septal wall with an ejection fraction of 65%. ?

I recently had a stress test and the only thing noted was lv wall motion: moderate septal hypokinesis. Is this something to worry about?
Wall motion abnormal: 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 heart.Cad, viral dz -exampl. ...Read more
Decreased movement: The inferior and basilar part of the left ventricle show decreased movement.Hypo(decreased) kinesis(motility). Usually because of compromised blood supply to that part of the heart because the local coronary has a critical stenosis or there was an infarct because the coronary feeding that area closed or is severely blocked. ...Read more
Hypokinesis: Hypokinesis on a cardiac echo refers to a less than expected contraction of the heart muscle. This is often seen due to damage of an area of the heart - usually associated with or following a heart attack. Inferoapical means the bottom part of the heart. ...Read more
My godson has been diagnosed with mild right apical hypokinesis. How is this caused and how can this be treated?
How old is he?: We need more history. Was he symptomatic / or a casual observation. Apical hypokinesis is decresed participation of apex of heart in the contractile fn.And the weakness of muscles could be from congenital weakness, poor blood supply from narrowed coronary vs. Without a heart attack/ silent heart attack/a obviously diagnosed heart attack, some infiltrative diseases- amyloidosis.Get a cardiolo.Opin. ...Read more
