Doctor insights on:
Can a septal spur cause excessive mucus secretions and/or sinus problems? Particularly of the ethmoid sinuses?
Can septal spur cause sharp pains at the top of the nose between eyes? What other symptoms might it cause?
Possibly: Although not common, sharp pain can be caused by a deviated septum with a septal spur. Typically, septal deviation causes nasal obstruction as a symptom. Septoplasty (even in patients that have had previous nasal surgery) can help, but pain is not always fixed with surgery & the risks/benefits need to be weighted properly. ...Read more
What type?: Repair depends on the type of ventricular septal defect .. There's perimembranous, av canal type, subaortic and muscular. Need to know if double outlet right ventricle or left ventricle present. Is there a concomitant right ventricular outflow tract obstruction?. Need to stop the heart and saw a patch, were to open the heart depends on type of vsd and associated defects. Timing of repair varies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart motion: Septal akinesia refers to a part of the wall of the heart not moving. Septal is wall, akinesia- means lack of motion. You should speak to your cardiologist about what this specifically means to you or the person who was told they had this condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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...: 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
Ischemia...: Most hearts have physiologic apical thinning which can sometimes be misinterpreted on nuclear stress test images. In addition, stress test images in patients with left bundle branch block can appear as septal ischemia if exercise stress is done rather than pharmacologic. The fact that both the apex and septum are involved in your case make it more likely to be real ischemia probably in lad. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
0 to 4 %: But many institutions report mortality of 0% to < 0.6 %.. It seems that hospital programs with excellent results, write articles about the good results, yet places with not so good results, don't write up their results. ...Read more
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
Infarcts: Infarcts are areas of heart muscle damage or scars. They can be deemed to be acute or old depending on associated EKG patterns. Q waves are often patterns of myocardial infarction. The above abnormalities are felt to be on the bottom and front of the left ventricle and possibly on the septum which is a wall between the left and right ventricles. This is a significant amount of heart muscle damage. ...Read more
