Lateral Ischemia Symptoms
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Excercise induced myocardial ischemia strongly positive at 90 percent mhr good excercise tolerance in a jogger no other symptoms what should I do?
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Partial blockage: "Reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" likely came from a nuclear stress test report. It suggests that part of the heart does not get enough oxygen when stressed (example: during exercise), but does get enough oxygen when at rest. This can happen if there is a partial blockage of an artery.Symptom may be chest pressure or pain when walking. Follow-up with the doctor is very important. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chest pain, others: Presumably you are asking about cardiac ischemia. The most common symptoms are chest/upper abdominal/neck/arm pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, sweating, palpitations, nausea and/or vomiting, fainting. These symptoms may occur in any combination or independently. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia: This term is a desciption of the fact that the front and left sides of the left ventricle are not getting enough blood during stress situations. The left ventricle is the main part of the heart. The term reversible means that during stress this part of the heart does not get enough blood and it implies that the artery going to that part of the heart has a blockage.

CAD: Inferior wall ischemia is abnormal blood flow in the blood vessels to the inferior wall of the left ventricle. It is treated but no really cured. If one has symptomatic inferior wall ischemia not responding to medical therapy, often an interventional procedure or surgery can restore blood flow to the area. The diet, exercise and meds must continue for life however. Read more
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I assume: You mean your EKG suggest lateral ischemia and LVH (which is short for left ventricular hypertrophy). Interpreting ischemic changes is difficult without knowing the history behind the EKG, but from what you mention it appears that you have some changes on your EKG that "could" be related to coronary disease. LVH on EKG suggests that the left side of your heart "could" be thickened. Read more
Depends: That would depend on what organ system is involved in the ischemia. If the brain, for instance, weakness of one side of the body, numbness, visual loss, etc. If the heart, then pain in the chest. Ischemia to the legs would cause pain in the legs at rest or on walking. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Scintographic findin: It's a description, typically from a perfusion scan - generally with a stress test - suggesting a blockage that affects the front/side wall of the left ventricle such that circulation is normal at rest but relatively insufficient with exercise.
