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

Hi what is mild ischemia in the apico septal and distal septal wall. Thanks?

Hi what is  mild ischemia in the apico septal and distal septal wall. Thanks?

It sounds like you: are referring to the results of a nuclear stress test. These findings would indicate that you have a blockage in the main artery feeding the front part of your heart down near the tip and involving part of the wall between your ventricles. Whoever ordered your test should review these findings with you since he/she will have your full clinical history available. Meanwhile don't exert excessively. ...Read more

May be artifact: Get full report from test. Some minor fixed defects are often attributed to artifact, and have no clinical significance. Check with your doc, and you may be able to challenge the insurance co decision. ...Read more

Recent stress test shows mild ischemia anterobasally and distal apical laterally. What does it mean exactly?

Recent stress test shows mild ischemia anterobasally and distal apical laterally. What does it mean exactly?

Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read more

I am 65 yrs old and my test show mild anterior apical ischemia EF 76% Stress test abnormal for mild ischemia .

I am 65 yrs old and my test show mild anterior apical ischemia EF 76% Stress test abnormal for mild ischemia .

Clinical correlation: Deciding best treatment option for you really depends on your symptoms...in other words, why did you have the stress test? Chest pain? Shortness of breath, etc? Second, treatment ought to be guided by risk/benefit analysis of intervention vs medical treatment. You need to have a candid discussion with a qualified cardiologist to ascertain best next step, and intervention, if any. ...Read more

Very mild reversible ischemia my stress test shows there is very mild ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD territory.What is that mean?

Reduced blood supply: Ischemia means reduced blood supply to a part or muscle. The lad refers to one wall of the heart. This means you should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. You are at risk for heart disease, but it doesn't tell you how great is the risk. ...Read more

Very mild reversible ischemia my stress test shows there is very mild ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD territory.What does that mean?

Blood flow: Reversible ischemia means that an area of your heart muscle is not getting adequate blood flow (at times) but then the blood flow "catches up" (i.e. Reversible). The lad is the left anterior descending coronary artery - it's an important blood vessel. The lad may have a blockage - would recommend seeing your cardiologist. ...Read more

Mild ischemia in the apico septal and distal septal wall what treatment is available for it. thanks?

The treatment of: coronary artery disease takes many different forms including medications, intervention (angioplasty and stenting) and open heart surgery. It depends on your clinical condition and many other things. This should be discussed with your health care professional who has all of the information available to make the best recommendations for you. ...Read more

I had a stress test done and the results were mild ischemia in the basal septum. Apical thinning. Lvef of 75%. Should i be concerned?

I had a stress test done and the results were mild ischemia in the basal septum. Apical thinning. Lvef of 75%.  Should i be concerned?

Abnormal Stress Test: This test suggests abnormal blood supply to the heart itself and requires follow up with your cardiologist and additional testing at the minimum. ...Read more

Father's stress text revealed abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging due to sm area of mild ischemia in the apex. What does this mean?

Father's stress text revealed abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging due to sm area of mild ischemia in the apex.  What does this mean?

Test result: If I presume your Dad is the 87y/o person listed on this then the test result has good implications. The gross implication is that there is coronary artery disease present and it isn't producing a lot of ischemia. In an 87y/o without symptoms or minor symptoms, medical therapy is appropriate. ...Read more

What is the significance of mild reversible ischemia?

What is the significance of mild reversible ischemia?

Coronary narrowing: Ischemia (which is found on a stress test) connotes heart muscle not getting enough blood flow to meet its needs. Mild ischemia implies that the defect showing up on stress test is more subtle, i.e. That there is slightly less blood flow to the area during stress than at rest. It usually means the severity of underling narrowing is less, though by definition it is still enough to limit flow. ...Read more

My mother's report says "Mild provocable ischemia noted in apico-anterolateral and mid-anterolateral segment of left ventricle." What does this mean ?

Provocable ischemia: means induced poor or lack of blood flow to a particular organ. In this case, a particular area of the heart. Usually occurs when the coronary arteries, the arteries that feed the heart, are clogged or compressed. Typically worsens with exertion, when the arteries are clogged. Reduction in cholesterol & BP by eating healthier helps as well as if serious disease, stent placement to keep flow going ...Read more

I have a mild reversible mycardumyocardial ischemia due to muscle bridge LAD . is it dangerous & treatment. please?

I have a mild reversible mycardumyocardial ischemia due to muscle bridge LAD . is it dangerous & treatment. please?

Talk to cardiologist: A muscle bridge is a strap of muscle running over the top of the artery. When the muscle contracts it squeezes down on the artery and narrows it causing reduced blood flow to that part of your heart. It can cause angina. If it is a threat - treatment would be to cut the band. The other option may be medication. Since the diagnosis has been made-discussion with your cardiologist is the plan. ...Read more
