Hypokinesis Involving The Basal And Mid Inferolateral Wall Of The Left Venttricle
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Decreased mobility of the walls of the heart than the normal force& speed to eject the normal fraction of the blood from the heart to supply all tissues is hypokinesisno mobility of the wall/part of wall is akinesis -worser than hk. Both hk and ak can involve a part of the heart muscle in the walls of the chambers as well as in the septum separating the chambers of the ...Read more

Englargment of the anterior horn of the right lateral ventricle secondary to the brain volume loss from the resection (meningioma tumor) meaning?

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
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
My mother in law went for the heart scan and diagnosed evidence of mildischaemia in the apex and distal inferolateral wall of the left ventricle ?
Bad circulation: Coronary arteries supply blood, and therefore oxygen, to every organ on the body. Coronary ischemia means low blood and oxygen to the heart, which can cause a heart attack. This is usually caused by cholesterol plaque blockage of the coronary arteries. The report says that your mother-in-law probably needs a procedure to open the vessels and restore circulation, like a stent or bypass surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
MRI was read, it said 'There is fusiform prominence of the left vertebral artery deforming the left side of the cervical medullary junction....
Review: When my patient's mri report comes back like that, I carefully review it with the radiologist, neurosurgeon, and a vascular surgeon to get as much information and advice as I can to see if further imaging studies should be done. This is a highly specialized situation that requires expert advice. ...Read more
Radiology.What is a small focal of cortical atrophy in the mid left cerebellar hemisphere peripherally with mild widening of the adjacent sulci?
Reversible?: It depends. Is the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test.Such things seen on a perfusion scan are often referred to as apical defects.That said, along with other indications, i might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The consequences could not be determined without a cath or ccta. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Means what? Abnormal t1 and t2 signal in the the articular surface of the femoral heads, particularly at the anterosuperior aspects both right n left
Focal densities: A "density" is a very generic term. There are normal and abnormal densities in the breast. Was this reported on a screening mammo, and were additional views recommended? If so, it is likely that they are potential abnormalities that need additional views for clarification . The majority of these turn out to be nothing, but you need to have the extra views to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What could an oval shaped low density lesion in the lower aspect of the right basal ganglia measuring 1cm be?
lesion in the brain: Any lesion in the brain, in this case a 1 cm lesion in the base of the right basal ganglia (near brainstem), is abnormal. There is no guessing about what it could be. I presume this was a ct or an MRI ordered by a primary care physician or neurologist. Whoever has this needs to have neurologic and possibly neurosurgical consultations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does hypokinesia of intraventricular septum apical.Concentric remodeling of the left ventricle w/segmental wall motion abnormality mean?
Consequences: Description is very typical reflection for consequences of long term uncontrolled high cholesterol and blood pressure. I also guess that you might have had heart attack in past. (silent infarct?). Practically this mean that your heart is no longer as efficient pumping blood through your body as it used to be. You definitely need to be under care and see your doctor regularly to avoid worsening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Oblique focus of increased signal within the posterior horn of the medial meniscus which extends to the inferior articular surface. Surgery or not?
Air space disease: The term airspace disease is generally used to indicate a problem involving the alveoli or air sacs in the lungs. These alveoli can fill up with fluid (e.g., pus, blood, water) and show up as abnormalities on chest xrays and ct scans. "right lateral" means the outside or peripheral part of the right lung. Most commonly, focal airspace disease suggests there is pneumonia. ...Read more
