Is left ventricular hypokinesis dangerous?

Is left ventricular hypokinesis dangerous?

It can be: Depends on location and overall involvement of the heart muscle as determined by an echocardiogram. It is not dangerous if associated with a conduction abnormality (bundle branch block) for example or a normal ejection fraction. ...Read more

Stress Echo-What does decreased left ventricular volume and hyperdynamic left ventricular systolic function mean?

Stress Echo-What does decreased left ventricular volume and hyperdynamic left ventricular systolic function mean?

Normal response : If you mean stress echo showed hyper dynamic LV function and smaller LV volume after exercise,that is a normal hemodynamic response to increased work, i.e. Exercise. ...Read more

Echocardio results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Is this normal?

Echocardio results:concentric lvh w/ adeq systolic function, dilated left atrium, mild tricuspid reg, pulmonic reg. Is this normal?

No.: This may be the result of longstanding hypertension. The doc who ordered your test should know more about how to interpret your results. ...Read more

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 more

Echo1.Old myocardial infraction (inferior+posterior+antero septal+apical) 2.Severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. What medicine you prefer?

Echo1.Old myocardial infraction (inferior+posterior+antero septal+apical)
2.Severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. What medicine you prefer?

A few: Assuming no medication side effects and normal vital signs in addition to no comorbidities that may play into this- daily aspirin, a beta blocker, statin and often an ace inhibitor. Each patient may need different things based on what else is going on. Have a conversation with your doc about it ...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%?

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

Hypoplastic right ventricle --can that occur?

Hypoplastic right ventricle --can that occur?

Yes: A wide variety of defects can affect the formation of the fetal heart and this is one of them. There amy be other defects to compensate for this or as a result of the hypoplastic right ventricle to accommodate normal blood flow. ...Read more

5-Mild tricuspid valve regurgitation.

Need cardiologist!: There are a number of concerning findings on your echocardiogram. The left ventricular function (how strong your pump is) is just a little low; I'm not that concerned about that. The valves, especially aortic, are the biggest problem: to have both aortic regurgitation (back flow across the valve) and narrowing (stenosis) is very concerning. Follow up soon with your cardiologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more

What does a moderately dilated left ventricle signify?normal systolic function,EF 55-60%,wall thickness normal.mitral/tricuspid regurgitation present.

What does a moderately dilated left ventricle signify?normal systolic function,EF 55-60%,wall thickness normal.mitral/tricuspid regurgitation present.

Dilation: In the presence of mitral regurgitaton, a moderately dilated left ventricle with normal EF implies a significant volume of mitral regurgitation. This should be followed up by a cardiologist to determine if more attention is required at this point. ...Read more

ABNORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY: SMALL SIZED REVERSIBLE PERFUSION DEFECT INVOLVING APICAL INFEROLATERAL SEGMENT AND APEX OF LEFT VENTRICLE?

ABNORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY: SMALL SIZED REVERSIBLE PERFUSION DEFECT INVOLVING APICAL INFEROLATERAL SEGMENT AND APEX OF LEFT VENTRICLE?

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read more

What is left ventrical dysfunction?

What is left ventrical dysfunction?

Weakness of heart: When the left ventricle fails to pump normally dysfunction is present. The two common types include poor ejection of blood from a weak and enlarged heart or poor filling of the heart from a stiff muscle wall. Myocardial ischema is a common cause but there are many other causes including those secondary to valve dysfunction, hypertension, alcohol use, viral infection and miscellaneous causes. ...Read more
