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?

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
