What is inferior basilar hypokinesis?

What is inferior basilar hypokinesis?

Decreased movement: The inferior and basilar part of the left ventricle show decreased movement.Hypo(decreased) kinesis(motility). Usually because of compromised blood supply to that part of the heart because the local coronary has a critical stenosis or there was an infarct because the coronary feeding that area closed or is severely blocked. ...Read more

Hypokinesis (Definition)

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 ...Read more

My godson has been diagnosed with mild right apical hypokinesis. How is this caused and how can this be treated?

How old is he?: We need more history. Was he symptomatic / or a casual observation. Apical hypokinesis is decresed participation of apex of heart in the contractile fn.And the weakness of muscles could be from congenital weakness, poor blood supply from narrowed coronary vs. Without a heart attack/ silent heart attack/a obviously diagnosed heart attack, some infiltrative diseases- amyloidosis.Get a cardiolo.Opin. ...Read more

EF 60%, LVSF low normal. Apical and anterior hypokinesis cannot be excluded. Minimal MR and trace AR. Mild TR, mild PR. Is this concerning?

EF 60%, LVSF low normal. Apical and anterior hypokinesis cannot be excluded. Minimal MR and trace AR. Mild TR, mild PR. Is this concerning?

2 things: 1. A relatively normal EF bit with possibly some focal hypokinesis may suggest ischemic heart disease. 2. The other reported findings on your heart valves are pretty benign. ...Read more

What is basal inferior hypokinesis?

What is basal inferior hypokinesis?

Heart movement: One thing cardiologist look on a 2d echocardiogram is the heart movement. When there is an infarct or an area of the heart not receiving enough blood, the movement is slower that the rest. Hypokinesis means that: decreased movement, in this case of the inferior wall. ...Read more

How do you treat mild septal hypokinesis?

May not: Require therapy. This just means the wall of the heart between the pumping chambers may not be functioning perfectly. If the rest of the heart is ok probably not a concern. ...Read more

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
