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 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

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?

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

What is reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall?

What is reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall?

Partial blockage: "Reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" likely came from a nuclear stress test report. It suggests that part of the heart does not get enough oxygen when stressed (example: during exercise), but does get enough oxygen when at rest. This can happen if there is a partial blockage of an artery.Symptom may be chest pressure or pain when walking. Follow-up with the doctor is very important. ...Read more

What does "reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" mean?

Ischemia: This term is a desciption of the fact that the front and left sides of the left ventricle are not getting enough blood during stress situations. The left ventricle is the main part of the heart. The term reversible means that during stress this part of the heart does not get enough blood and it implies that the artery going to that part of the heart has a blockage. ...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 lateral wall ischemia?

Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed. Lateral ischemia means that this is happening to the left sidewall of the pumping chamber of the heart. This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle. ...Read more

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

Anterior wall ischemia is dangerous? Is it curable?

Anterior wall ischemia is dangerous? Is it curable?

Yes: Anterior wall ischemia means there is a risk of having a heart attack. Treatment at this point is to see a cardiologist for full evaluation of the blood supply to the heart. Depending on the findings, treatment could be diet, medication, angioplasty with a balloon catheter, or even an operation. ...Read more

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is anterior wall ischemia?

Insuff. Blood flow: This is a way of saying that part of the heart is not getting enough blood (ischemia). To help with localizing what part of the heart is affected, we divide the heart into (typically) six walls. This helps tie together stress test information with angiogram information so that we can target the right arteries for treatment if necessary. The anterior wall is the "front" part of the heart. ...Read more

What is anterior wall ischemia? Is it dangerous? Is it curable...

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. Could be treatable if managed quickly. ...Read more

Hi what is mild ischemia in the apico septal and distal septal wall. Thanks?

It sounds like you: Are referring to the results of a nuclear stress test. These findings would indicate that you have a blockage in the main artery feeding the front part of your heart down near the tip and involving part of the wall between your ventricles. Whoever ordered your test should review these findings with you since he/she will have your full clinical history available. Meanwhile don't exert excessively. ...Read more

If you are diagnosed with lateral wall ischemia does that mean you should be in the icu?

If you are diagnosed with lateral wall ischemia does that mean you should be in the icu?

Ischemia: No. Lateral wall ischemia means that the left part of the left ventricle is not getting enough blood. Unless otherwise specified, it suggests that there is a blockage, usually chronic, of the circumflex artery. Most such individuals should not be in the icu. If this is reversible ischemia, and the area of ischemia is large, further studies may be needed to evaluate the situation further. ...Read more

Reversible severe myocardial ischemia 9%, ef 65 % mild infero lateral wall hypokinesia (m, 55yr, 80kg), what does this mean?

Findings: The first thing it means is that the patient and his doctor need to have a discussion of his status and what further steps if any are necessary. The studies reported above suggest that the patient has coronary artery disease and likely needs diet, exercise, not smoking, medications and perhaps other steps. ...Read more
