Doctor insights on:
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 blood supply has ischemia.

Ct scan showed Small vessel Ischemia. Cardioglogist quadruppled beta blocker after EKG. How does the ischemia effect my Kidney disease(stage 4)?
Vessels in both: Without an actual exam, I can't give specific medical advice on your particular health. Same things affect vessels EVERYWHERE. So, while strokes, or heart attacks don't hit the kidney. The same bad vessels are in all organs. Hi BP, diabetes, and cholesterol all clog vessels everywhere and affect all the organs (heart, brain, kidney). Treatable. Or such bad heart disease, no blood gets to kidney. ...Read more
Intestinal Ischemia: Symptoms of acute intestinal ischemia: sudden abdominal pain that may range from mild to severe; an urgent need to have a bowel movement: frequent, forceful bowel movements; tenderness or swelling in the abdomen; blood in your stool; nausea or vomiting or both ; fever. ...Read more
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
Posterior wall?: You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve. But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had perantine cardio. Stress test 2 wks. Ago. Diagnosis-ischemia of apex. Had heart cath. Today. No blockages. What could be causing chestpain. ?
Chest pain: There are many possible causes of chest pain including small vessel disease which doesn't show up on angiogram but can cause perfusion image abnormalities. You should discuss your symptoms and data with the physicians who know you and get their impression of what the cause of your chest pain is. ...Read more
Give me a hint. What kind of hassle am I facing if doc suspects intestinal ischemia? What is required to diagnose?
Could be serious: Intestinal ischemia can present in several ways. Acute intestinal ischemia is usually an emergency. You seem to be asking about chronic ischemia which can be an elusive diagnosis to clinch. Those with true intestinal ischemia have "fear of food" so extreme that they won't eat, and lose significant weight. Intestinal blood vessels must be imaged for diagnosis: ct, mri, and angiography may be used. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Other way 'round: 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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Recent stress test shows mild ischemia anterobasally and distal apical laterally. What does it mean exactly?
During: Exercise it stress. The blood flow to your heart is decreased. Then at rest the blood flow is normal. So you need to follow with your PCP and set up cardiology visit. Meds may be adjusted. But you need to know how much and where the blood flow is being compromised in the coronary arteries. Most of the time cardiac catheterization is performed to show the vessels ...Read more
