Myocardial. Medium perfusion defect moderate intensity in basal mid inferior basal inferior partial reversibility. Ef54%. TID .97 abnormal redegenson.

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

Can you tell me what reversible ischemia in the basal and mid inferior walls of the heart means please?

Can you tell me what reversible ischemia in the basal and mid inferior walls of the heart means please?

"Significant" block: Infer you have had an imaging study, using exercise or a pharmacologic agent to induce or provoke ischemia, and then using an imaging agent like a radioactive tracer, to show blood flow distribution. Subtracting a resting image from the "stress" image shows what areas have inadequate blood flow. Since the blood comes from the coronary arteries, a reversible image implies partial, not total, block. ...Read more

What this means?

revealed no scintigraphic evidence of hemodynamically significant
ischemia. Medium-sized, mid to basal inferior wall
mild-to-moderate mostly fixed perfusion deficit, excep

Stress test: A stress test with myocardial perfusion imaging is a way of detecting whether the heart muscle is getting insufficient blood supply because of coronary artery disease. It can be normal even with lots of coronary plaque, because it only detects severe narrowings. If there is a "fixed" perfusion defect that generally suggests a scar in the heart muscle from prior heart attack. Need more info. ...Read more

My echo conclusion said basal and mid inferoseptal hypokinetic. Visual EF was 55-60%. EF was 50.0 in report. Was this likely a heart attack?

My echo conclusion said basal and mid inferoseptal hypokinetic. Visual EF was 55-60%. EF was 50.0 in report. Was this likely a heart attack?

Possibly: Wall motion abnormalities could indicate a prior injury to the heart from MI or trauma or may indicate a current perfusion problem that may be correctable. Need evaluation by cardiologist to determining ne if abnormalities are old or current and whether or not they are correctable now. Your EF function is still well preserved and shouldnt limit your activites but if problem is current correct it ...Read more

Skin biopsy result: superficial to mid dermal perivascular lymphocytic infilitrate with focal basal vacuolar changes.does thismean allergic vasculitis?

No: There is no involvement of the blood vessels themselves- thus not vasculitis by definition. This is a very common skin biopsy finding which has no diagnostic meaning other than ruling out a more serious condition. ...Read more

There is reverse of redistribution in the mid to distal anteroapical wall which may represent ischemia, and left ventricular ejection fraction 60%, and fixed inferior wall defect What do they mean?

There is reverse of redistribution in the mid to distal anteroapical wall which may represent ischemia, and left ventricular ejection fraction 60%, and fixed inferior wall defect  What do they mean?

Concern: you appear to have a limitation of blood flow to the heart during the stress of the test that you had as well as the possibility of a previous heart attack but with still good heart pump function currently. Please see your cardiologist for follow up of the limitation of blood flow seen on the current test ...Read more

Petachiae in left lateral tracheal  wall in the mid portion what's it mean?

Wow....: The only way to see this is by bronchoscopy or surgery..... Your should ask the doctor performing the study. Petechia are usually not good and can represent many different problems. Can be either mild or serious. If found on the pharynx they can be a symptom of strep throat. An ear, nose and throat doctor can clear up the considerable possibilities. ...Read more

What does 'prominent osseous spur that projects laternally bet left middle and inf turbinate to contact the lateral wall of left mid nasalcavity' mean?

Septal spur: The most common osseous spur that projects between the middle and inferior turbinate arise from the bony septum. If this spur is obstructing the nasal cavity and causing difficulty in breathing through that side of the nose, a septoplasty can be performed by an ENT surgeon with good results. ...Read more

Abnormality of the mid inferior wall of the heart?

Abnormality of the mid inferior wall of the heart?

RCA or LCX: In 80% of people, the mid-inferior wall is supplied by the right coronary artery. In 10%, it's supplied by the left circumflex and in 10% there are contributions from both arteries. A focal abnormality in that location in a 60 yo man is statistically likely to be due to blockage in 1 or both of those arteries. The area is likely to be scarred or hibernating. ...Read more

Maybe 6 hours ago I hit the back of my head, I'd say mid way, on the wall and the headaches go off and on. Should i go get a check up?

Maybe 6 hours ago I hit the back of my head, I'd say mid way, on the wall and the headaches go off and on. Should i go get a check up?

Struck head: It depends on the mechanism of injury, and your symptoms. If you did not lose consciousness, if you do not have severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, confusion, blurry vision then you can monitor at home for now. If any of those develop you need to get evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

Does moderate ischemia in the apical mid anterior wall mean blockage in the lad?

Likely: The anterior and apical regions are typically supplied by the LAD and ischemia in these territories is usually due to significant tightening or blockage of the artery. ...Read more

I have fibriods subseros , mid anterior uterine wall . 34.5x36.5x29.3mm. Could save my uterus if i go for remôval .thank u?

Fibroid: In a seasoned hand of a trained gynecologist, you can undergo myomectomy to save your uterus. It will be good to know your age and gravida. The doctor can mark your endometrium with methylene blue prior to surgery to preserve your endometrium in case you desire future pregnancy.
Always remember that there is a small chance of hysterectomy if the doctor runs into uncontrollable bleeding. Goodluck ...Read more

Recently had a nuclear stress test and results stated possible small focus of ischemia of the mid anterior wall. Ejection fraction 59%?

Recently had a nuclear stress test and results stated possible small focus of ischemia of the mid anterior wall. Ejection fraction 59%?

Ejection fraction nl: An ejection fraction the 59% means that the pumping function of your heart is normal. A "possible small focus of ischemia of the mid-anterior wall" can mean that when you're exercising not enough blood flow gets through to a small area of your heart. Usually a test result like that will lead to a cardiac catheterization to see if there is a significant blockage of an artery to the heart muscle. ...Read more

What is a mid life crisis for women vs men?

What is a mid life crisis for women vs men?

Midlife crisis: This is time when men realize their own mortality & how much time they have left in their life. This can be triggered by changes such as loss or job or financial, etc. In men, it lasts longer, up to 10 years. In women it is usually 3-5 years. In men, it is mostly related to work issues, in women it is mostly due to role changes such as kids leaving home. ...Read more
