Anterolateral St Elevation
Electrical: A heart attack damages muscles in the heart. The flow of the electrical current throughout the wall changes when having to go around the damaged muscle, resulting in certain ekg changes, since ekg's show the path of electrical current in the heart. There are different changes, de[ending on which part of the muscle is damaged. ...Read more
St elevations refers to a finding on an electrocardiogram, wherein the trace in the st segment is abnormally high above the isoelectric line. Ekg st segment elevation is usually attributed to impending infarction, but can also be due to pericarditis or vasospastic (variant) angina and early repolarization. In some healthy young adults, a form of st ...Read more
The interpretation of my ECG result said :
junctional rhythm, rightward axis, st elevation, consider inferolateral injury or infaret, acute mi.?
EKG : I would not go by the computer interpretation of any ekg, it is better to ask the physician ordering it for the interpretation. ...Read more
EKG came back High Risk Operation.ST Elevation, consider early repolarization, pericarditis or injury. ST&T wave abnormal consider anterior ischemia?
Need further workup: Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more
I had an ECG done. Borderline low voltage in frontal leads. Borderline st elevation anterolateral leads means?
EKG: Ekg by itself doesn't mean anything. It has to be matched with the clinical picture. For example hear attack symptoms with st elevation can be active heart attack. Minimal st elevation without any symptoms could be something called j point elevation. Low voltage most of the time are normal but rarely could be seen in fluid around the heart. ...Read more
Myocardial. Medium perfusion defect moderate intensity in basal mid inferior basal inferior partial reversibility. Ef54%. TID .97 abnormal redegenson.
Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle. Most commonly this would be because of atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary artery. The next steps depend on the medical details. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High signal is seen within 1st & 3rd cuneiform and within anterior lateral aspect of cuboid possible bony injury?
26 w/ chest pain. Was tachy, inferior q wave noted, nonspecific st and t wave abnormality noted. Possible lateral infarct. What does this mean?
1 mm st depression in inferior leads. Positive stress ecg. Ischemia involved in the anterior wall and apex. Perfusion defect.?
Unhappy heart: The anterior, posterior or inferior all come together at the tip-apex. Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow. Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles. Likely will need angio and definitive recommendations. ...Read more
My father's ECG interpretated probably MI(inferior) minor left axis deviation and R/S inversion area between V1 and V2 probably abnormal ECG?
ECG: An ECG like that is interpreted in the context of the patients clinical information. The reading is not highly specific. ...Read more
Had MRI and xray arthogram done on right shoulder. Results noted: Incidentally noted high attachment of the anterior inferior glenohumeral ligament.
Should be OK: "Incidental" implies that it was stumbled upon, but not likely to be a problem. This description is not a common finding on MRIs, and I'm honestly not sure of the clinical significance. This ligament provides stability to the shoulder joint and keeps the humeral head/ball from slipping forward out of the socket/glenoid. The ordering physician, if an orthopedic specialist, should help you interpret ...Read more
Echo stress test shows "severe hypokinesis of the mid and distal anteroseptal segments". What is this?
Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?
Need repeat fasciotomies again(#6-anterior & #5-lateral). 6 weeks ago had fasciotomy of deep comp and foot-medial. Should lateral foot be released too?
Need clinical: Evaluation to your complex problem, discuss with your doctor will explain , if you are not satisfied take a second opinion to keep your mind at ease. ...Read more
My mother's report says "Mild provocable ischemia noted in apico-anterolateral and mid-anterolateral segment of left ventricle." What does this mean ?
Provocable ischemia: means induced poor or lack of blood flow to a particular organ. In this case, a particular area of the heart. Usually occurs when the coronary arteries, the arteries that feed the heart, are clogged or compressed. Typically worsens with exertion, when the arteries are clogged. Reduction in cholesterol & BP by eating healthier helps as well as if serious disease, stent placement to keep flow going ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ekg last yr & have left anterior block. This year 2nd EKG showed the left anterior block & right. Did echocardiogram, Nuclear stress test.any idea?
EKG changes are: electrical changes. The echocardiogram and stress test are arterial tests. You did not mention your age or if you had an MI or arterial disease. The electrical changes may occur without arterial disease or they may be related. See your doctor and it is important to know if your doctor thinks at some point you may need a pacer. SEe a cardiologist for complete information. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI showed in left ankle chronic full-thickness tear of the anterior talofibular ligament superior bundle. Is surgery required?
Usually not.: For most lateral ankle ligament injuries, including tears, surgery is not required. Of course, different circumstances call for different treatments. Most respond to immobilization, physical therapy and eventual rehab with some injuries. Consult your physician you considerations about your specific circumstances. ...Read more
grade 1 and grade 2 meniscal injury in
anterior and posterior horns- medial meniscus.
grade 3 MI in posterior horn lateral meniscus.
Meniscal tears: Typically grade 3 meniscal tears require surgery in young patients. Goal is preservation of the meniscus.So if it has torn in the zone where it has a good blood supply, it can be sutured and can heal. If it is torn away from the blood supply. It requires partial removal of the torn portion. All done by an experienced Orthopaedic knee surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
