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

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.

What is the treatment regime for ischemia?

Multiple drugs: Anti platelet agents such as aspirin, plaivix. Beta blockers such as atenolol or metoprolol. Vasidilators such as nitroglycerin. Occasionally anticoagulants such as Heparin or lovenox (enoxaparin). Coronary intervention such as angioplasty, stenting, and bypass surgery. Read more

Is ischemia reversible? What is the most recommended medical treatment?

Is ischemia reversible? What is the most recommended medical treatment?

Too many questions: Ischemia can be reversible or irreversible. Where is the ischemia? Is it reversible? How was the determination of ischemia made? Depending on the location of the ischemia - which is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body - the 1st step would be confirmation of the diagnosis usually by an angiogram. If the ischemia is reversible, and depending on location, it might be revascularized. Read more

Partial thickness MI (viable) involving basal segments of inferior and inferoseptal walls showing residual ischemia. Tell me its treatment?

Partial thickness MI (viable) involving basal segments of inferior and inferoseptal walls showing residual ischemia. Tell me its treatment?

Seek 2 opinions: One option might be by a cardiologist treating medically to thin the blood and prevent clots. They also might stretch open the blocked artery with angioplasty.
2nd opinion is valuable from a chest surgeon- to see if you might benefit from surgical bypass to bring new blood flow to the locations at risk. Read more

What kind of treatment is available for cerebral ischemia?

What kind of treatment is available for cerebral ischemia?

Prevention: After a TIA or even stroke, the next greatest risk, over next year is another stroke. The protocol often used includes aggenox and lipitor (atorvastatin). Need to make sure however, that you do not have carotid stenosis, and that hypertension, diabetes, high lipids, high homocysteine, all well controlled. Also, may sure that heart is not a primary source for a secondary stroke. Tpa deals with acute ischemia. Read more

What do you suggest if my mother has ischemia and I want to know what the best medical treatment for this and is it reversible?

See below: It's not generally reversible without an intervention (either percutaneously or with surgery). The best medical treatment consists of : aspirin, beta blocker, statin, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor. Correction of anemia, hypoxia, and not smoking. If angina persists, a nitrate and/or ranolazine can be added. Read more

I have a mild reversible mycardumyocardial ischemia due to muscle bridge LAD. Is it dangerous & treatment. Please?

I have a mild reversible mycardumyocardial ischemia due to muscle bridge LAD. Is it dangerous & treatment. Please?

Talk to cardiologist: A muscle bridge is a strap of muscle running over the top of the artery. When the muscle contracts it squeezes down on the artery and narrows it causing reduced blood flow to that part of your heart. It can cause angina. If it is a threat - treatment would be to cut the band. The other option may be medication. Since the diagnosis has been made-discussion with your cardiologist is the plan. Read more
