What does provokable myocardial ischemia mean?

What does provokable myocardial ischemia mean?

Activity or emotion: The heart may have adequate blood flow to function normally at rest or lower levels of activity. However when you increase the nutrition needs of the heart as with exercise or strong emotions the blood flow is insufficient due to blockages and provokes ischemia which can be detected by various forms of stress test. Chest pain, shortness of breath & fatigue are the common symptoms of ischemia. ...Read more

How dangerous is a myocardial bridge ?

How dangerous  is a myocardial bridge ?

Can be normal: A myocardial bridge is when a coronary artery the normally runs on top of the heart actually dives into the muscle and is compressed with each heart beat. This isn't as bad ad it sounds because most blood flow occurs during diastole or when the heart is relaxed. Very rarely, some bridges can be symptomatic and cause angina symptoms but this should be a diagnosis of exclusion. ...Read more

Where do most myocardial infarctions occur?

Where do most myocardial infarctions occur?

Varies: You have three main blood vessels feeding the heart - the right coronary, left circumflex, and the left anterior descending arteries. Narrowing can occur in any of the vessels and can be significant in any one or combination of these vessels. Bypass of the left anterior descending artery has shown the best change for improvement in life expectancy. ...Read more

What conditions does a myocardial biopsy detect?

What conditions does a myocardial biopsy detect?

Myocardial biopsies: Myocardial biopsies can be used to diagnose a number of things microscopically, including transplant rejection (in patients with heart transplant), inflammation (myocarditis), drug toxicity, and causes of hypertrophic or restrictive cardiomyopathy (for example, amyloid,hemochromatosis, sarcoid or other more rare conditions). Neoplasms (benign or cancer) can also be diagnosed. ...Read more

Bridging: Myocardial bridging is a condition that one is born with and is usually not cause of symptoms. I am not aware of an association between myocardial bridging and left bundle branch block, although it would not be impossible if it were to cause impairment in coronary blood flow. ...Read more

How would salbutamol cause myocardial ischemia?

Rare : This is due to the fact that this is a beta agonist drug that increase myocardial Contractility as one of the main central effects. Too much medication will cause ischemia in the heart muscle from overwork, but as I mentioned above, only happens at high doses, and is a rare event ...Read more

Is there a connection with cholesterol and myocardial infarctions?

Is there a connection with cholesterol and myocardial infarctions?

LDLHDLnotCholesterol: It have been known, for over 7 decades, that artery disease typically begins ~age 7, yet remains asymptomatic for decades; artery walls thicken & enlarge, not narrow. Events, including stenosis (narrowing), result from plaque rupture & clots. Optimize NMR particle test (hdl & LDL concentration, not cholesterol), keep hba1c low, optional ?5.0%, sbp ?120 mmhg, don’t smoke, exercise, avoid sugar, etc. ...Read more

Myocardial infarction causes?

Myocardial infarction causes?

Many poss causes: Almost all heart attacks are the result of fatty deposits on the inside of arteries that break open and cause clotting which will blocks the artery (and the blood from flowing to the part of the heart the artery feeds). Family history, fatty diet, smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes and other disorders can all contribute to this process. ...Read more

What is a myocardial infarction?

What is a myocardial infarction?

Heart stroke: A heart stroke is also known as a myocardial infarction or heart attack. A blood clot forms in a heart blood vessel. This cuts off flow to a part of the heart and that part dies. This can cause pain, rhythm and pumping disturbances. These things can result in disability or death. ...Read more

What is a myocardial infarction?

What is a myocardial infarction?

Heart attack: Myocardial infarction mean death ("infarction") of heart muscle (card ~heart and myo~muscle). This happens when the heart muscle is not getting the oxygen it needs over a relatively long period of time. This can happen from a narrowing of a blood vessel which reduces flow or from a suddenly, totally blocked vessel. The heart can't stop working, so that part keeps trying to pump blood until the the ...Read more

What confirms myocardial infarction?

What confirms myocardial infarction?

Toponins,clinic,wall: Acute cardiogenic shock, .Ventricular arrythmias, infarct syndrome, flash pulmonary edema, wall motion abnormalities, syncope, presyncope, cardiac arrest, . It takes 4 hours for troponins to elevate after the infarct begins. That is why clinical symptoms dictate emergent coronary interventions. Troponins may still be normal within minutes of a life threatening myocardial infarct. ...Read more
