Severe Global Hypokinesis
What is severe global hypokinesis of the left ventricle? How to cure? Age :65 sex: Male Kindly explain
Hypokinesis / HF: The heart is divided in multiple segments. Ex. Anterior, Posterior, Lateral, etc Your segments can by hypokinetic, dyskinetic, akinetic. If a segment is hypokinetic it does not contact fully. Akinetic, does not move. So this info I assume comes from echocardiogram report. Global Hypokinesis means every segment in your heart contracts less. = Heart Failure http://goo. Gl/wXzTvs Cheers C!
Decreased mobility of the walls of the heart than the normal force& speed to eject the normal fraction of the blood from the heart to supply all tissues is hypokinesisno mobility of the wall/part of wall is akinesis -worser than hk. Both hk and ak can involve a part of the heart muscle in the walls of the chambers as well as in the septum separating the chambers of the heart. ...Read more
I have chf, ef 19%, latest tests say I have Severe global hypokinesis, left ventricular is enlarged. Lg anteroseptal defect, reperfusion?
No cure: Treatment will depend on cause. A search for reversible causes should be undertaken. The pt should be assessed for hibernating myocardium, hemochromatosis, severe hypertension, and toxins. A betablocker like carvedilol and an ACE-inhibitor should be administered. Digoxin may also be beneficial. If LBBB is present, resynchronization should be done. Advanced directives should be considered.
My mother 64 yrs suffering from severe global lv hypokinesis with ef 20 what is her life expectancy.
Limited: If she is having symptoms despite optimized treatment interventions it sounds that her prognosis might be very poor (for example might qualify for hospice -> only her doctor can say). It also depends on current interventions, ask your mom's cardiologist for more information and if he/she doesn't feel terminal stage yet but still suffering from symptoms ask for a palliative medicine referral.See 1 more doctor answer
My dad is suffering from copd, dilated cardiomyopathy, pulmunary edema, global hypokinesis of lv, severe lv dysfunction, lvef of 25%, moderate to sev?
Reduced function: It means that the part of your heart supplied by the left anterior descending coronary artery is functioning at reduced efficiency.
Poor heart function: The left ventricle is the part of the heart that pumps blood to the body. Hypokinesis means not pumping as well as it should. Global mean the whole left ventricle. Mild to moderate shows the degree of malfunction (as compared to normal or severe). Your doctor can help determine the cause of the poor function, but this could include heart attack, poor circulation, infection, or poor nutrition.See 1 more doctor answer
My Echo showed borderline normal left ventricular with global hypokinesis what could possibly cause this. EF 50-55%?
Need risk review.: Hypokinesis means that the muscle mass in the heart is less active than expected. Now is it really an issue or is it just by chance. Low blood supply to heart can be one of the reason, besides this sometimes low metabolic states and depression can lead to hypokinesis. You need to see a cardiologist who will discuss your risk profile and then see what is the possibility and suggest further.
Wall motion: General grade of wall motion abnormality: Normal>Hypokinetic>Akinetic>Dyskinetic>Aneurysmal Global hypokinesis is overall decreased cardiac function. With akinesis, the severity of injury results in the wall not moving at all. Dyskinetic motion suggests even worse function, and aneurysmal is complete loss of contractility. Myocardial infarct and heart failure are the most common settings
Virus caused cardiomyopathy, global hypokinesis of LV. EF35-40%.Echo 4days later clear, EF57%. 12wk preg. Feel worse now then before. What's going on?
Viral cardiomyopathy: Viral cardiomyopathy can get better then worse with reactivation of the virus, renewal of fever, etc. Plus pregnancy increases your blood volume and right now you might have a lower blood pressure as you near the 2nd trimester. You will likely need many echo's and you'll be at risk of A-fib, which will make your symptoms worsen rapidly. Probably a good idea to call your OB and cardiologist.
Mild fixed perfusion deficit in the distal anterior/anteroapical wall. Mildly enlarged left ventricle. Mild global hypokinesis, with moderate hypokinesis of the inferior and apical walls. Mildly low resting left ventricular ef of 45% post test 51%?
What's the question?: This result indicates a blockage with resultant heart muscle damage (prior heart attack) likely involving an artery known as the "LAD". In this particular case the LAD is likely large with a "wrap around" to the apical inferior region. A cardiac catheterization would be recommended to visualize the coronary arteries followed by possible stenting if the area is "viable" and not scarredSee 1 more doctor answer
Can cardiomyopathy & global hypokinesis of left ventricle cause pain in chest, shoulder, ribs &back on left side? HR 113, BP 139/84 no meds bc13wks preg
C below: Cardiomyopathy by itself would be rare to cause pain symptoms as you describe. Unless the cardiomyopathy is related to an autoimmune disorder, in this case, other symtpoms can ensue if the pericardium or pleura are affected.
A recent heart study has revealed that I have mild global hypokinesis and moderate la dilation. Also hocm under stress. Could you explain this plz?
Global Hypokinesis. EF 39%.Large area of fixed defect in Anterior, Septal & Inferior wall. No lung uptake. RV appears normal. Abnormal Dilated LV with large fixed defect with multiple wall motion abnormalities. Put on Cardivlol & listrophil. Now have increase
Cath report:LAD has ostial hazy lesion40% tapered down distaly to apex. Diagonal branch ostial 90% lesion. Mild global hypokinesis LV. EF 50%. how bad?
No: Hypokinesis simply means "hypo/too little--kinesis/movement" this is abnormal at any age. I don't know what "heart experts" have to do with it, although it is possible that heart muscle is involved. It is almost certainly due to biochemical/ electric changes in muscles or their nerve supply. You need medical advice if you have not already.
