I recently had bedside 2d echo and I see inferior wall hypokinetic with EDD 4.8 cm IVSD 0.9 Cm EF 52%. could someone help me how to get to normal.

Abn echo: EF is a bit low. Would discuss with your cardiologist. May need a catheterization to look at the vessels and see if any occluded (even at your age) because if vessels are stenosed opening them may help Also discuss cardiac bridging w/ your MD Medications may help as well. Sometimes if due to acute infection the heart improves wi/meds and monitoring. F/u /w/ cardiology. ...Read more

Very concerned.: I presume that described hypokinesis was noted during stress portion of your test and was not present at rest. You have significant blockage in one of your coronary arteries, most likely lad. ...Read more

Posterior upper segmental wall placental localization means and how to treat it?

Unclear: It appears that you are describing something you read in a sonogram report during pregnancy. For individual interpretation you will need to contact the ordering physician who has all the details. This sentence simply describes the location of the placenta inside of the uterus on the upper back wall. This would not require treatment ...Read more

Why is the trachealis muscle can only be found on the posterior wall of the trachea?

Why is the trachealis muscle can only be found on the posterior wall of the trachea?

Trachealis muscle: This smooth muscle's main function is to help constrict the trachea and to help stabilize the cartilage rings. The posterior wall lacks cartilage support and the smooth muscle can help variations in the diameter of the lumen. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have a large posterior wall Fibriod with subserosal extension is seen, measuring approx. 68x60 mm. Please suggest me for further treatment.

It depends: It depends on the problems it is causing and your general health as well as the resources available in your area.Embolization can be done by an interventional radiologist in many cases or hysteroscopic resection is another option. There r drugs which can shrink fibroids but they do tend to grow back rapidly when the drugs are stopped. Fibroids shrink after menopause so, observation is also an option. ...Read more

Hi. I am 42 year old having a posterior wall fibroid of 8 mm. Do I need to leave it or take some medicines for pain or should go for the surgery?

Hi. I am 42 year old having a posterior wall fibroid of 8 mm. Do I need to leave it or take some medicines for pain or should go for the surgery?

It depends.: If your doctor is reasonably sure that the fibroid is causing this pain, then surgical intervention might be appropriate. The fibroid won't go away on its own and being on long-term pain medications has problems of it own. This is a decision that you & your doctor need to make together very carefully. ...Read more

Is fibroid curable with medicine. Or need surgery? I have 64mm posterior wall fibroid. Which is better for me?

Does it bother you?: At 6cm, the question is, does the fibroid bother you? Cause you pain? Affect your menstrual cycle? If it's not bothering you, then you don't need surgery at all. If it's bothering you, then likely yes. If it encroaches on inside of lining, then hysteroscopy is best, otherwise, consider laparoscopic myomectomy. Medicines help, but only for awhile, typically grows back. Hope that helps! ...Read more

My echo shows a posterior wall and septal thickness of 1.3 cm each. It indicates mild concentric LVH with normal systolic function. Should I worry?

My echo shows a posterior wall and septal thickness of 1.3 cm each. It indicates mild concentric LVH with normal systolic function. Should I worry?

Some concern: Concentric hypertrophy of the left ventricle can be due to elevated blood pressure or valvular heart problems although your echocardiogram apparently doesn't demonstrate any valvular abnormality. Your findings are only mildly abnormal and a cardiologist would be best qualified to evaluate and advise you in order to prevent future cardiac problems. ...Read more

Had a/p vagina wall repair 2 weeks ago. I have a lot of tissue granulation on the posterior wall, is this normal? It hurts, will it go away? Worried.

TwoWeeks? That'sNothn: Oh yes, you need to give it more time. Two weeks is nothing. Yeah, and stop fooling around! You need more time to heal. The scars will eventually model to the contours in there. The tissue in there, like in the mouth, heals fairly quickly. But in your case there's "remodeling"that needs to take place over time. And the sutures need to be absorbed and the healing inflammation calm down. Chill. You'll heal ...Read more

Can you tell me what a chronic 20% anterior compression deformity of T11 and t12 with no significant dorsal displacement the posterior wall.

Can you tell me what a chronic 20% anterior compression deformity of T11 and t12 with no significant dorsal displacement the posterior wall.

Compression fracture: I hope you're not reading your own xray report because it suggests an old osteoporotic fracture, at least if you don't recall injuring yourself. I say this because 34yo is kinda young for osteoporosis. Best to get a DEXA (dxa) scan to evaluate bone mineral density of your spine & hips. Then go to http://www. Shef. Ac.Uk/frax/ to calculate your risk for another fracture given known risk factors. ...Read more

My mom has two small fibroids each about (10x10)one is inside anterior wall & the other inside the posterior wall, both at lower segment, what to do?

There are options...: It depends if there are symptoms from the fibroids or not. They can watch the fibroids by ultrasound if they aren't causing bleeding or pain. If they are symptomatic, she could try hormonal therapy, uterine artery embolization, or surgery -either myomectomy to remove fibroids or total hysterectomy if she does not wish to preserve fertility. ...Read more

Possibly: The effect of a fibroid on fertility is most dependent on its location. A fibroid that pushes into the uterine cavity may reduce your fertility and may be worth considering removing. ...Read more

What does 'mild lv dilation with interior/posterior wall motion abnormality mean?

What does 'mild lv dilation with interior/posterior wall motion abnormality mean?

Heart dysfunction: Dilatation of left ventricle can commonly ve related to coronary artery disease and episodes of ischemia and infarction. The muscle inferioly and posteriorly does not contract normally due to damaged muscle. Left ventricula dilation can be secondary to the damage to the left ventricle. This ventricle pumps blood to all the organs of the body. Meidcations can sometimes strengthen heart.Contraction. ...Read more

I have lvh-moderate concentric, isvd 1.2, posterior wall 1.2. I have hypertension. How bad are heart measurements?

I have lvh-moderate concentric, isvd 1.2, posterior wall 1.2. I have hypertension. How bad are heart measurements?

Not too bad: Some analyses of left ventricular hypertrophy use wall thickness, such as you provide, to estimate prognosis and others use calculated left ventricular mass. Hypertension is a common cause of this increase in wall thickness. But your measurements are near normal: 0.6 to 1.1 cm. You likely should be on angiotensin modifying drug (s) and, most importantly, keep you blood pressure under good control. ...Read more

Why does fibrosis of the left ventricular posterior wall (like in cases of muscular dist.)cause a murmur? Where is the murmur coming from?

Murmurs from valves: Murmurs are heard when listening to the heart, and are caused by turbulent blood flow through the heart valves. The timing, type and location of the murmur can be used to identify which valve is involved. To further define the problem, an echocardiogram is used to see the blood flow in real time. Fibrosis of the ventricular wall does not cause a murmur, unless it effects the valves. ...Read more

Mucosal irregularity in the posterior wall of nasopharynx is a normal finding or its dangerous? My ENT said its normal, but google makes me scared.

Mucosal irregularity in the posterior wall of nasopharynx is a normal finding or its dangerous? My ENT said its normal, but google makes me scared.

Trust your ENT: Yes, the mucosal irregularity could be caused by really bad things, but don't you think your ENT would be checking for those very things? Apparently they weren't there. If still concerned, identify the 2-3 most fearful things (infection? cancer?) from your Google search. Then ask your ENT what their features are. If you don't have them then no worries. Hope that helps. ...Read more
