Could be: The anteroseptal area is supplied by an important artery-the left anterior descending artery that ischemia in this region can potentially trigger a lethal arrhythmia Leading to a cardiac arrest even when the artery is still partially open. More important ishemia is a warning that a potentially dangerous situation exists and needs attention ...Read more
Several: This just refers to the location in the heart of a lack of blood supply. The possible treatments are medication, angioplasty with stent, or surgery (bypass operation) if there is a blockage. If the reason for the problem is something other than a blockage, such as anemia or lung disease resulting in a low oxygen, then the treatment would be directed at correcting the primary problem. ...Read more
“stress-induced ischemia of anteroseptal wall apex, basal inferoseptal wall, ischemic cardiomyopathy w/severe L ventricular systolic dysf, ref 30%.
Not good: You need a close follow up with a cardiologist for the rest of your life, if you smoke, try to quit ASAP ...Read more
Stress echo showed ischemia in anteroseptal n apical septal walls n the apex. Next week is the Heart CATH. Could it be normal arteries n echo was wrong?
Small to med size perfusion defect of mild to modrate intensity involv da antero-septal wall.76% predict HR is +ve for inducible ischemia. Treat line?
LVEF 41% at stress. Reversible ischemia involving apicoanterior, distal anteroseptal. Reduced, non reversible perfusion involving the mid basal. Means?
Abnormal stress trst: Means you need to see a cardiologist for further testing to evaluate your heart for possible blockages in the arteries that supply your heart muscle. ...Read more
My ekg showed probable anterosrptal ischemia and short pr wave. My doc said the info shows up on numerous pts. And not to worry. Should I be concerned?
If my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what does that mean? Have I ever had an heart attack before?
Stress test show positive for ischemia involving the anteroseptal and apical septal walls and the apex. Also four beat runs of V-tach. Please explain?
What do you suggest if my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what that means have I every had an heart attack before?
Ischemia with stress: Hi. Without seeing the test done or the report, we can't say whether or not you've had a heart attack before. At the least, when you exercise and heart muscle oxygen demand goes up, not enough oxygen gets to the anterior wall and the septum to meet the demand. You need coronary angiography, and may need a stent or a bypass operation; you'll need medical therapy in any event. Ask your cardiologist ...Read more
