Mild Reversible Ischemia
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 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 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Reversible severe myocardial ischemia 9%,ef 65 % mild infero lateral wall hypokinesia (m,55yr,80kg), what does this mean?
Findings: The first thing it means is that the patient and his doctor need to have a discussion of his status and what further steps if any are necessary. The studies reported above suggest that the patient has coronary artery disease and likely needs diet, exercise, not smoking, medications and perhaps other steps. ...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?
What mean , Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls ?
Blocked arteries: This is used to describe blood flow to the heart. The fact that it is reversible indicates that you may benefit from intervention either stent or cabg. The next step is to verify the stress test results with cardiac Cath. The "culprit "vessel is likely right coronary or circumflex. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
