Peri Infarct Ischemia
Lack of blood flow.: "Ischemia" means a relative lack of blood flow (i.e., less blood flow than expected or less flow than noted on a prior scan). Peri-infarct means around the area of cell death (infarction). Upload the report & images on HealthTap Prime to discuss in more detail. But the basic gist is that around the area of death, there is an area of less blood flow than there should be. ...Read more
When the blood supply of a tissue is compromised by whatever mechanism, the tissue will stop working and if blood flow is not restored, the tissue will eventually die ("infarct", both verb and noun). The clinical picture that runs with development of an infarct ("heart attack"; ...Read more

Reduced blood supply: The septum of the heart is the wall inside the heart that separates the heart chambers from each other. Ischemia in this area indicates narrowing in one of the arteries to this muscle area, usually from hardening of the arteries. It indicates some degree of heart disease. You should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. ...Read more
Ischemia vs MI: Cholesterol plaque develops in the heart arteries. Progressive narrowing - usually greater than 70% - can lead to lack of blood flow to the heart muscle during exercise or rest and causes angina or ischemia. Myocardial infarction is due to the rupture of a plaque which causes a blood clot to form (thrombosis) in the artery blocking blood flow to that area of the heart muscle which then dies. ...Read more
Unhappy heart: The anterior, posterior or inferior all come together at the tip-apex. Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow. Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge.

What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?
Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Continuum: Both are a result of inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle. Acute coronary syndrome means that the imbalance is sufficient to cause symptoms that prompt aggressive intervention, but may not result in permanent heart damage; a myocardial infarction implies that overt heart damage has occurred, hence positive markers of tissue damage. ...Read more
You mean a TIA: Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is often called a "mini-stroke, " and is considered a harbinger for a full-blown stroke. It can occur as a result of a narrowing in the carotid arteries. Unlike a stroke, TIA symptoms last anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours. Typically can present with blindness to one eye, paralysis, or slurred speech. You should see a vascular surgeon immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Am not familiar with "unspecified", but transient cerebral ischemia means diminished blood flow to a part of the brain causing clinical symptoms. Since this can be the first sign of an impending stroke, this needs to be fully evaluated and medication started for prevention. See a neurologist and get this fully addressed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia...: Although people have varying coronary anatomy, the septum and apex are most commonly supplied by the left anterior descending (lad) artery. Usually ischemia is characterized by extent, severity, and degree of reversibility. For mild ischemia, sometimes medical management is the appropriate treatment. For extensive, severe ischemia, a more invasive procedure may be necessary. See your doctor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
