Can septal spur cause sharp pains at the top of the nose between eyes? What other symptoms might it cause?

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 are common methods of repairing a ventrical septal defect?

What are common methods of repairing a ventrical septal defect?

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 more

What is a septal akinesis ?

What is a septal akinesis ?

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 more

What causes anterior septal ischemia?

What causes anterior septal ischemia?

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

Cardiology My first 3 echocradiogram read IAS in Tact,then change  in 2011 to IAS  no trans septal flow detected. what dose it mean?Can not get answer

No change: These are 2 ways of saying the same thing. They both say that the septum (wall) between the two atria (upper chambers of heart) is not allowing any blood to flow through it. This is normal. ...Read more

My images suggest apical septal ischemia?

My images suggest apical septal ischemia?

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 more

How do you treat mild septal hypokinesis?

May not: Require therapy. This just means the wall of the heart between the pumping chambers may not be functioning perfectly. If the rest of the heart is ok probably not a concern. ...Read more

My nuclear images suggest apical septal ischemia.

My nuclear images suggest apical septal ischemia.

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 more

Could you explain what is a septal atrial defect?

Since birth: It's a congenital defect in which the there is a hole in the wall separating the left and right atria (upper chambers of the heart). It's usually called an "atrial septal defect" or just asd. ...Read more

Hi what is mild ischemia in the apico septal and distal septal wall. Thanks?

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

What is an old inferior infarct, old anterior infarct, and possible septal Q-waves?

What is an old inferior infarct, old anterior infarct, and possible septal Q-waves?

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
