Symptom Of Left Lateral Wall Blockage In The Heart
RCA or LCX: In 80% of people, the mid-inferior wall is supplied by the right coronary artery. In 10%, it's supplied by the left circumflex and in 10% there are contributions from both arteries. A focal abnormality in that location in a 60 yo man is statistically likely to be due to blockage in 1 or both of those arteries. The area is likely to be scarred or hibernating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes an intermittent pinching sensation in the lower inside of left breast where it meets the sternum?Cardiac anxiety.PCP says heart ok.
My mother in law went for the heart scan and diagnosed evidence of mildischaemia in the apex and distal inferolateral wall of the left ventricle ?
Bad circulation: Coronary arteries supply blood, and therefore oxygen, to every organ on the body. Coronary ischemia means low blood and oxygen to the heart, which can cause a heart attack. This is usually caused by cholesterol plaque blockage of the coronary arteries. The report says that your mother-in-law probably needs a procedure to open the vessels and restore circulation, like a stent or bypass surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why does fibrosis of the left ventricular posterior wall ( like in cases of muscular dist. )cause a murmur? Where is the murmur coming from?
Murmurs from valves: Murmurs are heard when listening to the heart, and are caused by turbulent blood flow through the heart valves. The timing, type and location of the murmur can be used to identify which valve is involved. To further define the problem, an echocardiogram is used to see the blood flow in real time. Fibrosis of the ventricular wall does not cause a murmur, unless it effects the valves. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wow....: The only way to see this is by bronchoscopy or surgery..... Your should ask the doctor performing the study. Petechia are usually not good and can represent many different problems. Can be either mild or serious. If found on the pharynx they can be a symptom of strep throat. An ear, nose and throat doctor can clear up the considerable possibilities. ...Read more
Location of heart: Partly center partly leftGet a more detailed answer ›
Pains: Aneurysm is usually asymptomatic until the clinical event occurs. Pain in the head could possibly be a sign of ruptured or enlarging aneurysm but it would be unlikely to be a sign of an aneurysm not actively enlarging or rupturing. In the spectrum of pains behind the ear, aneurysm would be way down on the list. ...Read more
There is reverse of redistribution in the mid to distal anteroapical wall which may represent ischemia, and left ventricular ejection fraction 60%, and fixed inferior wall defect What do they mean?
Concern: you appear to have a limitation of blood flow to the heart during the stress of the test that you had as well as the possibility of a previous heart attack but with still good heart pump function currently. Please see your cardiologist for follow up of the limitation of blood flow seen on the current test ...Read more
Reversible?: It depends. Is the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test.Such things seen on a perfusion scan are often referred to as apical defects.That said, along with other indications, i might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The consequences could not be determined without a cath or ccta. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Would left coronary artery blockage produce ischemia of left ventricle and right axis deviation on ekg?
How can you get rid of a clot that occurs in the anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery?
Air space disease: The term airspace disease is generally used to indicate a problem involving the alveoli or air sacs in the lungs. These alveoli can fill up with fluid (e.g., pus, blood, water) and show up as abnormalities on chest xrays and ct scans. "right lateral" means the outside or peripheral part of the right lung. Most commonly, focal airspace disease suggests there is pneumonia. ...Read more
Any ideas why heart failures come from pulmonary embolism in the right upper lobe of the lung in arteriosclerosis?
Several ways: The pe can cause low oxygen including what goes to the heart. It can put strain on the heart, dilate the right side, cause hormones to be released cause tachycardia and due to that chf, arrhythmia and failure of the heart to push blood if big enough. It can then cause paradoxical pressures in the ventricles collapsing the left ventricle due to right pressure. ...Read more
MRI =Mild" thickening of heart muscle not HOCM.Tortuous descending aorta. Aberrant right subclavian artery which courses posterior to the trachea. ??
Mild thickening's OK: See my comment to your previous post regarding the other findings (tortuous aorta, subclavian artery). The mild thickening of the heart muscle is common, and not necessarily from HCM. It could be the effects of long-standing hypertension. Keeping ur BP low with a -pril or a -sartan (Enalapril, Valsartan, etc.) could even reverse the thickening of the heart. Thanks 4 ur question on HealthTap, & GL! ...Read more
What is the most common cause of tightness in the center of chest, shortness of breath, and pressure on left side of heart near ribcage?
Heart attack/angina: It is quite possible that the symptoms you are describing could be due to strain on your heart, or even a heart attack, especially with your history. There are other possible reasons, however. You should see a doctor ASAP. If you are having these symptoms currently, go to the ER. ...Read more
Left arm pain: Visceral pain is pain is carried afferent fibers (type of nerve) of the autonomic nervous system. The visceral nerves are designed to tell you that something is wrong but not exactly where. The nerves of the heart and left jaw, shoulder, and arm overlap. There is individual variation in the spinal cord distribution. Pain from a heart attack may occur in any or all of those areas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
