I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides.
These have anatomical names:
anterior
posterior
septal

the anterior-septal is at a junction.
Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise (induced) or a chemical.
It may require medication and even surgery
to eliminate. ...Read more

What is the significance of anteroseptal ischemia?

What is the significance of anteroseptal ischemia?

Unhappy heart: The anterior wall is the front
septum is the wall between ventricles

that part of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow.
Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. ...Read more

Please tell me if anteroseptal ischemia is fatal?

Please tell me if anteroseptal ischemia is fatal?

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

What are treatments for anteroseptal ischemia?

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

What is anteroseptal wall ischemia?

What is anteroseptal wall ischemia?

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. ...Read more

LVEF 41% at stress. Reversible ischemia involving apicoanterior, distal anteroseptal. Reduced, non reversible perfusion involving the mid basal. Means?

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

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?

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?

Not necessarily: You need confirmatory testing for this abnormal finding. A high grade blockage in a heart artery could cause this even if you have not had a heart attack. ...Read more

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?

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

39 yr old male weightlifter. Hypertension palps. Ekg says old antero septal infarct. Consider inferior ischemia. I don't believe it. No pain w exercise?

39 yr old male weightlifter. Hypertension palps. Ekg says old antero septal infarct. Consider inferior ischemia. I don't believe it. No pain w exercise?

Artifact: It is likely that with a thick heart or LVH that the ekg shows those findings. Check with your doctor and an echocardiogram maybe helpful in confirming or refuting findings. ...Read more

What is inferior ischemia?

What is inferior ischemia?

Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read more

What is reversible ischemia?

What is reversible ischemia?

Poor perfusion: Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue:
heart attack
stroke
amputation
renal failure
are sequellae of ischemia
but mild is mild
reversible means it was treated and improved. ...Read more

What are symptoms of ischemia?

Depends: It depends on the part of the body that is not getting enough blood and oxygen. If it is the heart you could get chest pain. If it's a leg, leg pain. If it's the brain you could get a stroke. ...Read more

What symptoms suggest ischemia?

Pain: Ischemia refers to a lack of blood flow and circulation. This causes a significant decrease in oxygen delivery to the tissues that causes the tissues to undergo anaerobic metabolism. This then secretes Lactic Acid which causes pain. So pain is the first sign. ...Read more

What generally causes ischemia?

Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises of a lipid laden core covered by a fibrous cap, is the pathophysiological hallmark of atherosclerosis. It is the acute rupture of such plaques that results in a clot (thrombus) that results in ischemia, which simply means inadequate blood flow. ...Read more

What are the causes of ischemia?

Several: Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body. It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress. ...Read more

What does reversible ischemia mean?

What does reversible ischemia mean?

At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. ...Read more

What is an explanation of ischemia?

What is an explanation of ischemia?

Lack of enuff blood: "ischemia" = the normal tissue (eg heart, brain, intestine) is not receiving sufficient blood flow to supply the oxygen needed for the tissue's normal metabolic activity. For instance, ischemic heart muscle cannot contract normally. Cardiac ischemia is documented on a stress test, by using signs like EKG changes, flaccid heart muscle squeezing, or lack of uptake of nuclear tracer by heart muscle. ...Read more

What does ischemia cause in the body?

Other way 'round: Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. ...Read more
