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
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?
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%. ?
