There is reverse of redistribution in the mid to distal anteroapical wall which may represent ischemia, and left ventricular ejection fraction 60%, and fixed inferior wall defect What do they mean?

Concern: You appear to have a limitation of blood flow to the heart during the stress of the test that you had as well as the possibility of a previous heart attack but with still good heart pump function currently. Please see your cardiologist for follow up of the limitation of blood flow seen on the current test ...Read more

What is endocarial cushion defect?

What is endocarial cushion defect?

AV valve development: In normal development, the primitive atrioventricular (av) canal joins the atria to the ventricles. At four to five weeks of gestation, the superior and inferior endocardial cushions of the common av canal fuse and lead to the formation of the mitral and tricuspid valves and the av septum. Failure of these cushions to fuse properly results in a broad range of av septal defects and av valve defects. ...Read more

What are birth defects from anticonvulsants?

What are birth defects from anticonvulsants?

Several types: Major congenital malformations include: spina bifida or heart defects. Other important ones include cleft lip or cleft palate. More subtle, but still important ones include effects on learning and cognition during childhood. Not all anticonvulsants do theses things to the same degree. The total daily dose often helps to determine the frequency of these defects. ...Read more

Could a closed vsd still cause these "defects"?

Could a closed vsd still cause these "defects"?

More info needed: Are you having symptoms or problems you believe to be a result of a vsd that was closed? A vsd may cause problems due to excess blood flow through the lungs, or due to dilation ("stretch") of left sided heart structures. Closure of the vsd, if early enough, reverses these problems, but if closed in adolescence or adulthoot, some problems may not disappear. Many factors contribute. ...Read more

What does bilateral L5 with par defects mean?

What does bilateral L5 with par defects mean?

Defect of spine: A pars defect of the lumbar spine involves a part of a vertebra called
the pars interarticularis. " A defect in the pars is a break in this portion
of bone. This break leads to a separation of the upper, front portion of
the vertebra from its lower, back portion. This condition is a precursor
to another condition called spondylolisthesis, which allows slipping of
a vertebra in relation to the vertebrae above or below it.

Previously, it was assumed that pars defects were congenital
anomalies, or birth defects. Today, we understand that most pars
defects are really stress fractures that usually occur in the spines of
young people. The presumed cause is repeated hyperextension ...Read more

What is the significance of anteroapical ischemia?

What is the significance of anteroapical ischemia?

Location: Ischemia is a term meaning that that part of an organ (the heart in this case) is not getting enough blood and oxygen. Anteroapical just refers to the locasion of the blockage. Antero means front of, and apical refers to the apex of the heart, the part that is directed down and to the left, on the opposite side to the aorta. ...Read more

Is there a lens to correct protanopia color defect?

Caution: The use of a red contact lens or purple tinted glasses will allow you to distinguish the letters and numbers on test plates that you get wrong with the naked eye. However they work by shifting the axis of color deficiency so you become color blind in a new way and they cut down the overall light intensity which decreases acuity and contrast sensitivity. These are not cures. ...Read more

What does "chronic bilateral pars defects at l5" mean?

Pars defect: Refers to the pars interarticularis which is the bone connecting the inferior and superior facets which is anterior to the lamina and posterior to the pedicle. There are two per vertebrae. Lumbar pars defects can occur in young athletes or from stress fractures secondary to chronic arthritic changes or sudden severe trauma. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: pars defect?

Spondylosis: Spondylolysis is a defect of a vertebra. More specifically it is defined as a defect in the pars interarticularis of the vertebral arch. The great majority of cases occur in the lowest of the lumbar vertebrae (l5), but spondylolysis may also occur in the other lumbar vertebrae, as well as in the thoracic vertebrae.

Spondylolysis occurs in three to six percent of the population. ...Read more

What is the defect in the cell cycle that causes leukemia?

What is the defect in the cell cycle that causes leukemia?

The cell cycle: ...is activated in the immature "blast" cells of acute leukemia. This is not so much a defect, as it is also a normal attribute of immature blood cells. A major problem is the lack of maturation of these cells into normal non-dividing blood cells. Various transcription factors are mutated and these may cause increased proliferation. CLL is characterized by decreased apoptosis (cell death). ...Read more

Please let me know if there is a lens you can get to correct protanopia colour defect?

Please let me know if there is a lens you can get to correct protanopia colour defect?

No: There is a contact lens sold (x-chrom) which advertises that ability. What it actually does is shifts the axis of confusion to make you color blind in a different way - so that you can pass a standard color test like the ishihara. But it just trades one type of color deficiency for another and lowers the total light input as well. ...Read more

Is it normal for the pain caused by a pars defect to get worse over time? Chronic ×1 year.

Is it normal for the pain caused by a pars defect to get worse over time? Chronic ×1 year.

Worse pain w action: This fracture will not heal on its own, so movement will cause increased muscle and occasionally bone pain. Generally in the small of the back or across the pelvic brim. The fracture is not worsening, but activity increases pain. PT can assist for spinal stabilization and ergonomic positioning training, and some will use braces for lifting tasks. ...Read more

What does it mean to me and what should I do if I have "chronic bilateral pars defects at l5"?

What does it mean to me and what should I do if I have "chronic bilateral pars defects at l5"?

Me too!: Bilateral pars defects are genetic defects of the spine that mean that the joints that hold the spine together at that are, and you could be more prone to spondylolisthesis--the top vertebra slipping over the bottom, which can case back pain, and radicular pain from pinched nerves. My mother had this, and so do i. Mine caught earlier because I was a gymnast--didn't know I had this until too late. ...Read more
