The heart is like a room with sides.
These have anatomical names:
the anterior-septal is at a junction.
Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise (induced) or a chemical.
It may require medication and even surgery

Not enough blood: Inferolateral generally refers to the location in the heart. Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body - I am assuming you are referring to your heart in this case - so the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. This can be caused by atherosclerosis or narrowing of the blood flow in the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am 62 yrs. Old male & had my byepass 4 yrs. Back. Now my ECG reads as I have biatrial enlargment inferolateral ischemia. Is it serious?
Hi. I did ECG and results : ST and T wave abnormality, consider inferolateral ischemia, doctor said everything is ok... 27 years old, 60 kg.
Depends: In many cases the EKG machine gives an automated reading. It's not as effective as having a good pair of eyes reading the EKG. I'd go with your docs's advice. ...Read more
St-t wave changes, consider inferolateral ischemia on ecg, echo shows heart good. Doctor said are few heart interruptions. What means? 27 yrs. Thanks
ST-T wave changes: ST-T wave changes often are non-specific and may not mean anything. There are some ST-T changes that are the hallmark of heart attack, but I doubt this is your case as you echo was normal. Modern computerized ECG machines will always say "consider. .. ischemia" with any ST-T wave abnormality. ...Read more

Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pain: Ischemia refers to a lack of blood flow and circulation. This causes a significant decrease in oxygen delivery to the tissues that causes the tissues to undergo anaerobic metabolism. This then secretes Lactic Acid which causes pain. So pain is the first sign. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises of a lipid laden core covered by a fibrous cap, is the pathophysiological hallmark of atherosclerosis. It is the acute rupture of such plaques that results in a clot (thrombus) that results in ischemia, which simply means inadequate blood flow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several: Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body. It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
