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

Used to describe inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to an extremity, an organ, or brain which ...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 symptoms suggest ischemia?

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 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 reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall?

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 more

What symptoms and conditions are associated with ischemia?

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 more

What does "reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" mean?

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. Read more

Can you please discuss inferior ischemia, what are the symptoms and can it be cured?

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

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 does Ischemia- lateral lead LVH+ mean?

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

What are common signs and symptoms of ischemia?

What are common signs and symptoms of ischemia?

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 more

Hi doctors, can you tell me what is reversible ischemia of the anter lateral wall?

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. Read more
