Unspecified Transient Cerebral Ischemia
See below: Am not familiar with "unspecified", but transient cerebral ischemia means diminished blood flow to a part of the brain causing clinical symptoms. Since this can be the first sign of an impending stroke, this needs to be fully evaluated and medication started for prevention. See a neurologist and get this fully addressed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tia (transitory ischemic attack) happens when blood supply to a certain area of the brain gets cut off temporarily. This causes a neurologic deficit - weakness, numbness, visual deficit or difficulty with speech. While TIA usually resolves, it indicates that there is a problem with your heart or blood vessels that can cause ...Read more
You mean a TIA: Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is often called a "mini-stroke, " and is considered a harbinger for a full-blown stroke. It can occur as a result of a narrowing in the carotid arteries. Unlike a stroke, TIA symptoms last anywhere from 15 minutes to 24 hours. Typically can present with blindness to one eye, paralysis, or slurred speech. You should see a vascular surgeon immediately. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia vs MI: Cholesterol plaque develops in the heart arteries. Progressive narrowing - usually greater than 70% - can lead to lack of blood flow to the heart muscle during exercise or rest and causes angina or ischemia. Myocardial infarction is due to the rupture of a plaque which causes a blood clot to form (thrombosis) in the artery blocking blood flow to that area of the heart muscle which then dies. ...Read more
So complicated: In short, no - migraines are not a hypoperfusive state. The old (not correct) understanding in fact was based on the observation that blood flow often increases with migraines. Like all things in the body, our understanding now is much more complicated. There's a complex interaction between the neurons (primary problem) and the vessels and surrounding structures (secondary). ...Read more
Maybe. Probably.: Cerebral hypoperfusion literally means "not enough blood to the brain." so whether or not it is reversible depends on the cause for the decreased blood flow, and "induced" typically refers to intentionally causing this, such as for brain surgery or diagnostically. If this is the case, then yes, it's reversible. You should ask your doctor for more information rather than "medspeak.". ...Read more
Define?accute anteroseptal myocardial infarction, atherosclerotic obstructive coronary artery disease, pulmonary edema, cardiogenic shock, hypokalemia
Here are some...: A 400-letter space is impossible to address many indicated subjects as questioned here. Why not type in the terms as keywords to search online? Thereby you surely gain a lot of pertinent information to feed your appetite of knowledge. Or you may just ask your doc who should be able to answer your questions to the point much easier. ...Read more
Cerebral infarct: Cerebral infarction, or stroke, occurs due to suddenly decreased blood supply to part of the brain. This is common when a piece of arterial debris or a blood clot lodges in a small artery. The risk factors for stroke are smoking, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, high blood sugar, and arterial disease. ...Read more
“stress-induced ischemia of anteroseptal wall apex, basal inferoseptal wall, ischemic cardiomyopathy w/severe L ventricular systolic dysf, ref 30%.
Not good: You need a close follow up with a cardiologist for the rest of your life, if you smoke, try to quit ASAP ...Read more
See comments: Are you referring to radiology reading of an MRI of brain? In elderly, often thought that white matter lesions are associated with "microvascular angiopathy", sign of potential atherosclerosis. Maybe potential stroke risk, especially lacunar infarct, but not straightforwards. Your physician needs to assess stroke risk. Spots more likely from migraine or prior injury. ...Read more
Reversible severe myocardial ischemia 9%,ef 65 % mild infero lateral wall hypokinesia (m,55yr,80kg), what does this mean?
Findings: The first thing it means is that the patient and his doctor need to have a discussion of his status and what further steps if any are necessary. The studies reported above suggest that the patient has coronary artery disease and likely needs diet, exercise, not smoking, medications and perhaps other steps. ...Read more
Is stable bilateral frontaoparietal white matter t2w/flair hyperintense signals, probably chronic microvascular ischemic changes called mild stroke?
What does coronary occlusion acute, arterio-sclerotic cardio vascular disease and acute myocardial infarction mean?
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
