What is the difference between a myocardial infarct, ischemia and angina?

What is the difference between a myocardial infarct, ischemia and angina?

Maybe very serious: Ischemia means an area of the heart is not getting enough blood usually because of a blockage in an artery. The severity depends on whether it is a major artery or not. An intact occurs when the artery is completely blocked and the muscle dies. Angina is the pain felt when ischemia occurs. ...Read more

Ischemia (Definition)

Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...Read more

Always had abnormal ECG due to inverted Twaves last ECG said ST & Twave abnormality, consider Anterior ischemia cant rule out inferior infarct. Worry?

Depends: You list "stress echocardiography" - was this normal? It's a much more accurate test than just an ordinary, resting EKG. If your stress echo was normal, forget the EKG but remember to always warn future doctors that you have a "normal funky-looking EKG" so they don't worry. ...Read more

The result of my ECG lateral wall ischemia occ. Pvc anterior septal infarct. Whats is that mean? Is that serious?

Concerning: How old are you? You need an echocardiography to see your heart or a stress test with imaging (nuclear stress test) for further evaluation. Pl get to see a cardiologist through your family doc. ...Read more

What is the difference between infarction and ischemia?

What is the difference between infarction and ischemia?

Stage of disease: In infarction when blood supply completely cut off the tissue dies as in heat attack with damage to heart muscle , con not be reversed , in ischemia blood supply diminishes ( reduced ) could be reversed no damage yet , this the stage heart attacks could be preventable by proper treatment (s) and intervention. Same with any other organ ...Read more

What are the differences between myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia?

What are the differences between myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia?

Ischemia: Ischemia is a term for tissue not getting enough oxygen(almost the same as not enough blood supply). Infarction is the end result of too much ischemia, it means death of the tissue. In other words infarction is the result of severe prolonged ischemia. ...Read more

Small myocardial infarction with Small -medium pharmacologically induced myocardial ischemia in that distribution. What are the the implications?

Small myocardial infarction with  Small -medium pharmacologically induced  myocardial ischemia in that distribution. What are the the implications?

Reversible defect?: If you're describing what we term a "reversible defect", wherein the heart seems OK at rest and not OK when stimulated (by exercise or medication), then this would mean that area of the heart is still vulnerable to damage (heart attack). This needs to be addressed and treated. You may need cardiac catheterization to define the anatomy of the vessel supplying that area with blood. ...Read more

Does ischemia or thrombosis cause myocardial infarction?

Does ischemia or thrombosis cause  myocardial infarction?

Ischemia vs MI: Cholesterol plaque develops in the heart arteries. Progressive narrowing - usually greater than 70% - can lead to lack of blood flow to the heart muscle during exercise or rest and causes angina or ischemia. Myocardial infarction is due to the rupture of a plaque which causes a blood clot to form (thrombosis) in the artery blocking blood flow to that area of the heart muscle which then dies. ...Read more

How is ischemia linked to myocardial infarction, along with thrombosis?

How is ischemia linked to myocardial infarction, along with thrombosis?

MI: Ischemia is a state of insufficient blood supply to an organ, in this case the heart. When the condition persists it causes death of the tissue/organ - myocardial infarction. The cause of limited supply can be a narrowing of the supplying blood vessel, a blood cloth(thrombosis), a combination of both, or an increased tissue energy need such as in fever/sepsis etc... ...Read more

Can any doc tell me what's the difference between myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia?

Can any doc tell me what's the difference between myocardial infarction and myocardial ischemia?

Damage done: Myocardia ischemia means heart muscle not getting enough oxygen. Frequently this is angina. When the lack of oxygen is prolonged there is destruction of the muscle: this is a heart attack or myocardial infarction. ...Read more

Infarction (Definition)

When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more
