I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what dose she means?

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides.
These have anatomical names:
anterior
posterior
septal

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
to eliminate. ...Read more

Is ischemia curable?

Is ischemia curable?

Yes: Ischemia refers to inadequate blood flow to the heart or other organs. Various techniques such as angioplasty and stents or surgical bypass operations can increase blood flow. Drugs like statins can slow the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Drugs like Aspirin can decrease the risk of blood clots forming on the walls of rough or narrowed arteries. ...Read more

Anterior wall ischemia is dangerous? Is it curable?

Anterior wall ischemia is dangerous? Is it curable?

Yes: Anterior wall ischemia means there is a risk of having a heart attack. Treatment at this point is to see a cardiologist for full evaluation of the blood supply to the heart. Depending on the findings, treatment could be diet, medication, angioplasty with a balloon catheter, or even an operation. ...Read more

What is anterior wall ischemia? Is it dangerous? Is it curable...

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. Could be treatable if managed quickly. ...Read more

Result as I mentioned above, ie: mildly positive to ischemia?

Not sure: Please be more clear about your question. If you're referring to an earlier question, please reference it. If you had a stress test and the results were positive for ischemia, then you need to see a cardiologist for further evaluation, but that is the extent of advice I can give you with the limited insight I have in your problem right now. ...Read more

113/69 pulse rate 85 is that good? And they said I have reversal ischemia would it be this normal if I had that?

Good Bo: Congratulations on having a normal blood pressure. I assume you have had a cardiac stress test that shows reversible cardiac ischemia. While many people with coronary artery disease often also have high blood pressure, you can have normal blood pressure and still develop coronary artery disease. Smoking, diet and genetics as well as blood pressure play a role. Talk to your doctor about risk fac. ...Read more

I had a nuc stress test and dr. Told me it was negative, but I was recently declined for insurance due to mild ischemia. Is test neg? What should I do

I had a nuc stress test and dr. Told me it was negative, but I was recently declined for insurance due to mild ischemia. Is test neg? What should I do

May be artifact: Get full report from test. Some minor fixed defects are often attributed to artifact, and have no clinical significance. Check with your doc, and you may be able to challenge the insurance co decision. ...Read more

What is inferior ischemia?

What is inferior ischemia?

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 more

What is reversible ischemia?

What is reversible ischemia?

Poor perfusion: Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue:
heart attack
stroke
amputation
renal failure
are sequellae of ischemia
but mild is mild
reversible means it was treated and improved. ...Read more

What are symptoms of ischemia?

Depends: It depends on the part of the body that is not getting enough blood and oxygen. If it is the heart you could get chest pain. If it's a leg, leg pain. If it's the brain you could get a stroke. ...Read more

What is an explanation of ischemia?

What is an explanation of ischemia?

Lack of enuff blood: "ischemia" = the normal tissue (eg heart, brain, intestine) is not receiving sufficient blood flow to supply the oxygen needed for the tissue's normal metabolic activity. For instance, ischemic heart muscle cannot contract normally. Cardiac ischemia is documented on a stress test, by using signs like EKG changes, flaccid heart muscle squeezing, or lack of uptake of nuclear tracer by heart muscle. ...Read more

What is the significance of ischemia?

See below: Ischemia implies insufficient blood flow. Myocardial (heart) ischemia is usually due to plaque obstructing blood flow. It can also be due to coronary artery spasm (especially in smokers). Ischemia often causes chest pains but can be painless (silent ischemia). Medical therapy is preferred to control risk factors. Invasive therapy such as angioplasty or bypass surgery is for unstable patients. ...Read more

What are the causes inferolateral ischemia?

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 more

What would be signs or symptoms of ischemia?

Depends: It really depends on what/where the ischemia is related to. For instance if it were the intestines then someone could have pain in their abdomen whereas if the ischemia were related to blockage in the arteries in their legs, it could present as pain in the foot/leg. I hope this helps clarify this a bit more. ...Read more

What is the significance of irreversible ischemia?

What is the significance of irreversible ischemia?

Permanent damage: If pictures of the heart during a stress test show a hole in the heart muscle which is there both at rest and during exercise, it indicates that that area has been permanently damaged. No use doing a bypass or angioplasty for that. The damage is done and cannot be reversed. ...Read more

What is the significance of inferoapical ischemia?

Artery blocked: That is just describing the anatomic location of the area of the heart not getting enough blood because of a blockage in a coronary artery. The significance of the blockage itself is that on could cause pain and lead to a heart attack with damage to that part of the muscle. ...Read more

Is ischemia deadly?

Is ischemia deadly?

Can be: Yes, ischemia can be deadly. Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. If the ischemia is irreversible, the nearby tissue will die. ...Read more

What is lateral wall ischemia?

Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed. Lateral ischemia means that this is happening to the left sidewall of the pumping chamber of the heart. This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle. ...Read more

What is inferior basal ischemia?

What is inferior basal ischemia?

Ischemia means: Decreased blood flow. I'm not sure if u are referring to the inferior basal part of the heart or the basal ganglia in the brain. Wherever it is, it suggests impaired blood flow and circulation related to high blood pressure, aging, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking. Follow up with your dr. Take care! ...Read more
