Left Ventricle Wall Abnormality
What does hypokinesia of intraventricular septum apical.Concentric remodeling of the left ventricle w/segmental wall motion abnormality mean?
Description is very typical reflection for consequences of long term uncontrolled high cholesterol and blood pressure. I also guess that you might have had heart attack in past. (silent infarct?).
Practically this mean that your heart is no longer as efficient pumping blood through your body as it used to be.
You definitely need to be under care and see your doctor regularly to avoid worsening. ...Read more
Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read more
Explain dilated left ventricle in reference to lvh. Can the ventricle walls increase exterior thickness out and interior thicknessin at the same time
PET scan said:
On FDG images, there is diffuse FDG uptake throughout the left ventricle wall including the septum.
What does that mean?
Need more informatio: You need to give us your medical history and explain the reason for doing a PET scan? Did you have chest pain or suspicion of heart disease?. What did your doctor tell you about the meaning of your PET scan report? FDG uptake is normal for the heart....lack of it might indicate a scar or damage to the heart muscle...but you do not seem to have that problem. ...Read more
PET scan said for sarcoidosis: On FDG images, there is diffuse FDG uptake throughout the left ventricle wall including the septum. What does that mean?
Ask your doc...: FDG-enhanced PET/CT is to show the unusual increase or decrease in glucose metabolism at certain areas of the body especially inside a mass - before or after drug treatment. Based on the features and distribution of FDG imaging enhancement as defined from experience, a diagnosis can be drawn; of course, biopsy is ultimate means for confirmation. So, ask doc - treating or radiologist timely. ...Read more
My stress test shows there is " very mild reversible perfusion abnormalities of the left ventricle which may be related to mild ischemia vs artifact?
Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?
What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarred ...Read more
What does a moderately dilated left ventricle signify?normal systolic function,EF 55-60%,wall thickness normal.mitral/tricuspid regurgitation present.
What is left ventricle posterior wall fibrosis? Thick wall or thin? Also, why does it cause a murmur? Does cause a valve to leak?
Heart disease: Posterior wall fibrosis can cause papillary muscle dysfunction and mitral insufficiency and the murmur of mitral insufficiency. ...Read more
Improvement chances in severe left ventricle damage with anterior wall thickness preserved when heart muscle moved little bit during stress echo?
It depends greatly: On underlying cause...Talk to your cardiologist.Get a more detailed answer ›
My mother in law went for the heart scan and diagnosed evidence of mildischaemia in the apex and distal inferolateral wall of the left ventricle ?
Bad circulation: Coronary arteries supply blood, and therefore oxygen, to every organ on the body. Coronary ischemia means low blood and oxygen to the heart, which can cause a heart attack. This is usually caused by cholesterol plaque blockage of the coronary arteries. The report says that your mother-in-law probably needs a procedure to open the vessels and restore circulation, like a stent or bypass surgery. ...Read more
Please explain me this term from heart echo report: only minimal, not fully anechoic separation behind the rear wall of the left ventricle. Is it ok?
Fluid in heart sac: The heart has a thin lining called pericardial sac. U'r finding usually indicates there is fluid between the space of the heart muscle and the sack called a pericardial effusion. It can cause chest discomfort or pain. Usually is followed closely by the heart doctor. Rarely needs to be drained-in emergency cases or other very special circumstances. ...Read more

Several: They symptoms of left ventricular failure include, shortness of breath (sob) and fatigue and weakness. There can be increased sob with activity. Other symptoms include orthopnea (inability to lie flat b/c sob), edema (swelling), frequent urination at night, waking suddenly with severe sob (pnd), and sometimes chest pain. ...Read more

Not well understood: The underdevelopment of the left sided heart structures begins early in fetal life and is likely related to decreased blood flow through the left side of the heart. Gene mutations have been identified in sporadic cases, and, after having a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, there is a higher risk for subsequent children with the condition suggesting that inherited factors play a role. ...Read more

Reversible?: It depends. Is the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test.Such things seen on a perfusion scan are often referred to as apical defects.That said, along with other indications, i might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The consequences could not be determined without a cath or ccta. ...Read more
