St Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction
Electrical: A heart attack damages muscles in the heart. The flow of the electrical current throughout the wall changes when having to go around the damaged muscle, resulting in certain ekg changes, since ekg's show the path of electrical current in the heart. There are different changes, de[ending on which part of the muscle is damaged. ...Read more
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
ST elevation...: Many believe that an st elevation myocardial infarction means that it is a transmural infarct (involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). Some people refer to nstemi (non st elevation myocardial infarction) as non-transmural infarct (not involving the whole thickness of the myocardium). These definitions are somewhat debatable but thought you may be interested. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

junctional rhythm, rightward axis, st elevation, consider inferolateral injury or infaret, acute mi.?
EKG : I would not go by the computer interpretation of any ekg, it is better to ask the physician ordering it for the interpretation. ...Read more
Myocardial. Medium perfusion defect moderate intensity in basal mid inferior basal inferior partial reversibility. Ef54%. TID .97 abnormal redegenson.
Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle. Most commonly this would be because of atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary artery. The next steps depend on the medical details. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
1 mm st depression in inferior leads. Positive stress ecg. Ischemia involved in the anterior wall and apex. Perfusion defect.?
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. Likely will need angio and definitive recommendations. ...Read more

Need further workup: Need to get evaluated for ischemic heart disease myocardial perfusion scan if done and called for this ischemia ,need to further evaluate with cardiac catheterization and or CTA of coronary vessels to clarify the abnormality especially if you are going for a surgical procedure ...Read more
ABNORMAL MYOCARDIAL PERFUSION STUDY: SMALL SIZED REVERSIBLE PERFUSION DEFECT INVOLVING APICAL INFEROLATERAL SEGMENT AND APEX OF LEFT VENTRICLE?
Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
ECG 12 leads: Normal sinus rhythm,Possible Left atrial enlargement,Inferior infarct,ACUTE MI / STEMI, Abnormal ECG
When compared with ECG of 30-MAR-2015 ST elevation now present in Inferior leads. BUT troponins are ok. Is it heart attack?
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
Q vs. non-Q: When a heat attack causes a full thickness ("transmural") heart attack, the ekg reveals the resulting scar by inscribing a "q" wave in the leads that correspond to the damaged area. If the heart attack was not transmural or occurred in an area not seen well on ekg, there may be no q waves. If you had no symptoms at the time of the heart attack (25-50% of all attacks), it will be "unrecognized.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
