Inferior Septal Ischemia
Reduced blood supply: The septum of the heart is the wall inside the heart that separates the heart chambers from each other. Ischemia in this area indicates narrowing in one of the arteries to this muscle area, usually from hardening of the arteries. It indicates some degree of heart disease. You should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. ...Read more
Ischemia...: Although people have varying coronary anatomy, the septum and apex are most commonly supplied by the left anterior descending (lad) artery. Usually ischemia is characterized by extent, severity, and degree of reversibility. For mild ischemia, sometimes medical management is the appropriate treatment. For extensive, severe ischemia, a more invasive procedure may be necessary. See your doctor. ...Read more
Ischemia...: Most hearts have physiologic apical thinning which can sometimes be misinterpreted on nuclear stress test images. In addition, stress test images in patients with left bundle branch block can appear as septal ischemia if exercise stress is done rather than pharmacologic. The fact that both the apex and septum are involved in your case make it more likely to be real ischemia probably in lad. ...Read more
It sounds like you: are referring to the results of a nuclear stress test. These findings would indicate that you have a blockage in the main artery feeding the front part of your heart down near the tip and involving part of the wall between your ventricles. Whoever ordered your test should review these findings with you since he/she will have your full clinical history available. Meanwhile don't exert excessively. ...Read more
Small to med size perfusion defect of mild to modrate intensity involv da antero-septal wall.76% predict HR is +ve for inducible ischemia. treat line?
Mild ischemia in the apico septal and distal septal wall what treatment is available for it. thanks?
The treatment of: coronary artery disease takes many different forms including medications, intervention (angioplasty and stenting) and open heart surgery. It depends on your clinical condition and many other things. This should be discussed with your health care professional who has all of the information available to make the best recommendations for you. ...Read more
Ekg showed possible septal ischemia this is change from normal EKG 3 months ago - can I still continue to exercise ?
ECG : This question is best posed to the doc who knows you. Ecg is just one data bit in your whole clinical picture. ...Read more
I'm diagnosed of anterior septal wall ischemia last dec 11 & ystrday ECG read nonspecific stt wave change, what to do?
Well: What did you doctor say? Did you ask him/ her as who sees you and did the test is the one with most info on your condition. ...Read more
I was having chest pain since morning and docter took an ECG n diagnosed as septal ischemia what should i do?
Cardiology...: Evaluation by a Cardiologist is of outmost importance at this time. I am not sure if you were referred but this should be the next step. For now I would figure you have been prescribed medications while you get other tests done. If you develop a new event of chest pain you should go to the emergency room for prompt treatment. ...Read more
Stress test show positive for ischemia involving the anteroseptal and apical septal walls and the apex.also four beat runs of V-tach. Please explain?
How dangerous is an ECG tracing- right nundle branch block septal wall ischemia for an 8 yo/ female child? She's having squeezing chestpain recently.
Possibly Dangerous: I am a pediatric cardiologist. I agree with the other answer--i would strongly recommend you take your child to see a pediatric cardiologist as soon as possible if you haven't already. The diagnosis of bundle branch block and ischemia is serious, but it depends where it is coming from. Machines are not good at interpreting pediatric ecgs. Again, please see a pediatric cardiologist asap. ...Read more
THE RESULT OF MY ECG IS THIS " SEPTAL WALL ISCHEMIA C- IRBBB" WHAT DOES IT MINS. I AM TAKING RIFAMPICINE DRUG, MY DOCTOR SAID NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.
The result of my ECG lateral wall ischemia occ. Pvc anterior septal infarct. Whats is that mean? Is that serious?
39 yr old male weightlifter. Hypertension palps. Ekg says old antero septal infarct. Consider inferior ischemia. I don't believe it. No pain w exercise?
What is small antero septal ischemia vs. Attenutaion? Does it mean a heart attack? What is a left ventricle hypertrophy?
Stress echo showed ischemia in anteroseptal n apical septal walls n the apex.Next week is the Heart CATH.could it be normal arteries n echo was wrong?
I just had a ecg today and it said on the sheet Sinus rhythm,left ventricular hypertrophy, ant/septal and lateral ST-T changes may be due to hypertrophy and/or ischemia, abnormal ecg. my doctor told me my heart was ok! I had a quad by pass 1 year ago als
ABN ECG after Bypass: Doctor prob means there's no ECG changes from a year ago. ECG was prob abn before Bypass, & worse after. Important questions are answered on Stress test & Echo, & not unreasonable to have a year after Bypass. Important questions are whether you experience unexplained breath shortness or chest/arm discomfort w exertion. Once an ECG is abnormal one can only compare with previous ones(weak test) ...Read more
Ischemia: Well... Depends where and how :-) ischemia is a technical term for lack of tissue oxygenation, usually caused by a restriction of blood flow to organ/limb etc. Such as a blockage on the supplying blood vessel. But it can also be because of failure of the heart pump or oxygen need of the tissue exceeding supply as in sepsis, high fever... Prognosis pending correction of the underlying cause. ...Read more
Lack of Oxygen: "ischemia" refers to any condition in which insufficient levels of oxygen are delivered to the tissues. Since oxygen is necessary for cell and tissue function, ischemia can cause symptoms, abnormal organ function and cell/tissue death. In the heart, for example, ischemia can result in chest pain and shortness of breath, loss of muscle strength and pump function and heart attack. ...Read more
Location: Ischemia is a term meaning that that part of an organ (the heart in this case) is not getting enough blood and oxygen. Anteroapical just refers to the locasion of the blockage. Antero means front of, and apical refers to the apex of the heart, the part that is directed down and to the left, on the opposite side to the aorta. ...Read more
