Mibi scan shows diffuse reversible ischemia in keeping with angina?

Mibi scan shows diffuse reversible ischemia in keeping with angina?

Heart disease: Angina means chest pain caused by the heart. This usually comes from clogged arteries. As the arteries initially clog, blood can still get around the blockage and is reversible. This can eventually progress to a worsening blockage where blood can't get around it. This usually results in what is known as a heart attack. Reversible is good but it's important to prevent it from getting worse. ...Read more

Most commonly, this underlying problem is due to an obstruction of the coronary blood vessels that surround the heart. There are different types of angina including stable angina, unstable ...Read more

Coronary ischemia effects? Do a few heart muscle cells die each time you have angina?

Not necessarily: Angina is a symptom of chest discomfort. Heart cells die only when the blood supply to the heart is stopped for at least 20 minutes. Angina may occur with no stoppage of blood to the heart, or it may occur in the presence of a damaging heart attack, known as myocardial infarction. ...Read more

Ischemia (Definition)

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 ...Read more
