What is Concentric LVH wherin LVEH is 63% & FS is 33% There is also Mid & apical part septum hypokinetic & Pericarditis/.What is the seriousness?

What is Concentric LVH wherin LVEH is 63% & FS is 33% There is also Mid & apical part septum hypokinetic & Pericarditis/.What is the seriousness?

Too many queries: But I will answer as fully as possible: concentric LVH means "thickening of wall" of left ventricle (main pumping chamber of heart) due to excess pressure, usually high BP. Could also result from aortic valve stenosis. Check your BP and get it under control. Second, "mid and apical part septum" HK suggests one wall of LV not squeezng well. Not sure how reliable your test was....Last pericardits, ...Read more

Ecg suggests mid and apical septum and anteroseptum hypokinesia. What are the best test to identify where the artery blockage might be?

Ecg suggests mid and apical septum and anteroseptum hypokinesia. What are the best test to identify where the artery blockage might be?

CAD: What you are calling ECG has to be echocardiogram, ECG doesn't read hypokinesis. The artery involved would have to be the left anterior descending and some septal perforators from the location. Depending on clinical situation, you might need a coronary angiogram if interventional therapy is appropriate. You should be already on CAD treatment. ...Read more

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?

"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

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 shouldn't limit your activites but if problem is current correct it ...Read more

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

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

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

Normal lv size with hypokinesis of the basal segments of anterior, inferior and inferior septum, otherwise preserved global systolic function & ef 56?

Echocardiagram: Your doctor needs to discuss the results of this test with you, in light of known disease, age, and other factors.
The term "hypokinesis" is indicative of deficient muscle contraction, causing less than optimal pumping action of the heart muscle. This may be due to neuro and/or vascular deficiencies. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

What is basal septum hypokinesis of the heart?

What is basal septum hypokinesis of the heart?

Depends: Hypokinesis means abnormally low contraction and wall motion of the segment of the heart. The greater the number of left ventriculuar wall segments with hypokinesis, the worse the overall heart function is, and the greater the chance of developing heart failure and premature death. ...Read more

What is basal septum hypokinesis of the heart? How serious is it?

What is basal septum hypokinesis of the heart? How serious is it?

Hypokinesis: We describe the motion of the heart walls in terms descriptive of the motion and the location. Basal septum being described as hypokinetic in the absence of any other areas of wall motion abnormality is difficult to interpret. It could suggest real abnormality or just be a phenomenon of view angle and not really be a big deal. Best to discuss with the reader of the study ...Read more

Is a coronary angiography the next test after echocardio for investigating basal septum hypokinesics. I have no symptoms and am worried as invasive?

Is a coronary angiography the next test after echocardio for investigating basal septum hypokinesics. I have no symptoms and am worried as invasive?

Hypokinesis: An exercise echocardiogram could show whether the wall motion in the septum changes with exercise implying the muscle needs more blood flow. A nuclear perfusion study could show the rest and exercise blood flow to the area as well as other parts of the heart. A ct angiogram could show the vessels to the area. Best to discuss with your dr. There are lots of options. ...Read more

Echo: The interpretation of the images on an echo has an element of subjectivity, if everything else is normal there may not be a problem. Discuss with your dr. More tests may be needed to clarify whether you have a problem causing the basal septum to appear hypokinetic. ...Read more

My echocardiogram showed reduced basal septum contraction and basal inferior akinesia does this indicated cardiomyopathy? Normal EF.

Echocardiogram: If you are a 23y/o male and without symptoms and your echo shows what you indicate, I'd get a second opinion first before assuming the abnormalities are real. Those are the type of findings if real that suggest either ischemic heart disease or other form of cardiomyopathy. That area of the heart however is difficult to interpret and perhaps the reading is debatable. ...Read more

Echo:basal septum contraction and basal inferior akinesia does this indicated myopathy? If so witch one and why? Heart contraction feels differerent.

Complex question: The changes on echo you describe are complex, and sound more like the changes one would expect in coronary artery disease, which would be very unusual in a woman your age. See the doctor who ordered the echo. And if need be a cardiologist, which will likely be necessary. Good luck. ...Read more

My mother's report says "Mild provocable ischemia noted in apico-anterolateral and mid-anterolateral segment of left ventricle." What does this mean?

Provocable ischemia: Means induced poor or lack of blood flow to a particular organ. In this case, a particular area of the heart. Usually occurs when the coronary arteries, the arteries that feed the heart, are clogged or compressed. Typically worsens with exertion, when the arteries are clogged. Reduction in cholesterol & BP by eating healthier helps as well as if serious disease, stent placement to keep flow going ...Read more
