Yes & check LDL-P: You will need to be treated. The best indicator of response is another measure of LDL and HDL quantity - LDL and HDL particle number (ldl-p and hdl-p). When tg is high and hdl-c is low it is common to have high ldl-p and low hdl-p. Treat additional contributing factors (sugar, thyroid, kidney problems), optimize diet / exercise, and use medication as needed to get to low ldl-p (<1000). ...Read more

Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?

Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal  anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?

What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read more
