Hi I had a stress test done where they put the dye in my IV and my paper work says a small mild perfusion defect Of apical aspect of the anteroseptal ?

Perfusion defect: Hi, was the defect reversible or irreversible? The perfusion defect simply means that there is reduced blood flow to a part of the heart muscle, there are couple of possibilities including blockage in the artery feeding that area, an old heart attack or an artifact due to the test not being perfect or the heart muscle at that moment is hibernating due to chronic low blood flow, I suggest that you ...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 more

What does this mean from a stress test? Small sized, mildly reduced, fixed, apical perfusion defect consistent with artifact.

It means that there: was a slight abnormality on the nuclear images of the test which the reader interprets as most likely related to things unassociated with your heart or heart problems such as large breasts. The test was within normal limits. It would be like taking your temperature and getting 98.7 rather than 98.6. Not exactly normal but also not indicative of a problem to be concerned about. ...Read more
