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

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

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?

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

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?

During: Exercise it stress. The blood flow to your heart is decreased. Then at rest the blood flow is normal. So you need to follow with your PCP and set up cardiology visit. Meds may be adjusted. But you need to know how much and where the blood flow is being compromised in the coronary arteries. Most of the time cardiac catheterization is performed to show the vessels ...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

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
