Hypokinesis Left Ventricle
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 heart. ...Read more
Can cardiomyopathy & global hypokinesis of left ventricle cause pain in chest, shoulder, ribs &back on left side? HR 113, BP 139/84 no meds bc13wks preg
Poor heart function: The left ventricle is the part of the heart that pumps blood to the body. Hypokinesis means not pumping as well as it should. Global mean the whole left ventricle. Mild to moderate shows the degree of malfunction (as compared to normal or severe). Your doctor can help determine the cause of the poor function, but this could include heart attack, poor circulation, infection, or poor nutrition. ...Read more
By definition, if:
Called mild hypokinesis, then it is abnormally decreased left ventricle wall motion.
There is a range of normal, based on visual inspection, heart size and experience, but when the wall motion is less than expected, it is hypokinetic. Mild hypokinesis generally means nearly normal, but it is not a normal variant. ...Read more
What is severe global hypokinesis of the left ventricle? How to cure? Age :65 sex: Male Kindly explain
Hypokinesis / HF:
The heart is divided in multiple segments. Ex. Anterior, Posterior, Lateral, etc Your segments can by hypokinetic, dyskinetic, akinetic.
If a segment is hypokinetic it does not contact fully. Akinetic, does not move. So this info I assume comes from echocardiogram report. Global Hypokinesis means every segment in your heart contracts less. = Heart Failure

In addition to mild hypokinesis of the left ventricle when ejection fraction is 48% and left atrium is moderately dilated, what could that indicate?
EF: What this means is that there is a region of your heart that is not moving properly. This likely secondary to impaired irrigation from a possible stenosis vessel. Depending on the reason you could have diastolic/systolic dysfunction. Giving the dilated atrium. You should likely be on bblockers, acei, Aspirin, ...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%?
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
Your cardiologist ca: Since this is a heart related matter, your family doctor should guide you and arrange a consultation with a cardiologist. Right heart can be dilated for any reasons that cause pulmonary hypertension such as chronic or acute lung disease. I would want to be sure there is no pulmonary emboli (blood clots in your lungs). ...Read more
Not well understood: The underdevelopment of the left sided heart structures begins early in fetal life and is likely related to decreased blood flow through the left side of the heart. Gene mutations have been identified in sporadic cases, and, after having a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, there is a higher risk for subsequent children with the condition suggesting that inherited factors play a role. ...Read more

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 more

I am ansari suffering from severe cardiomypathy since 2008. Left ventricle is severely enlarged with decreased ef only 20%. Is there any cure?
Depends: Dependent on your age you may be a candidate for a heart transplant. There is unlikely to be a cure at this stage. There are a lot of medications that help with the disease and also other devices (icd, specialized pacers) that help as well. ...Read more

Had late tiffascan @27th week and everything is normal but 2d echo report mentioned, "efc noted in left ventricle", is it a problem if so how serious?
Ask your doctor: Tiffascan is just a fancy name for a specialized ultrasound looking for fetal anomalies. While I don't know exactly what efc stands for (its a nonstandard acronym) but it probably refers to an "echobright intracardiac focus" (eif). Almost always, the finding of an eif on fetal ultrasound is not a concerning finding and if an echocardiogram is performed after birth, there are no abnormalities. ...Read more
