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

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

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

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

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

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

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 more

Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls its dangerous conclusion of stress test or good ?

It is not: normal, reversible ischemia means that there are areas of your heart that do not get enough blood flow under stress, but do get enough flow at rest. You need to see a cardiologist for further evaluation/treatment. ...Read more
