Ventricular Wall Motion
What does hypokinesia of intraventricular septum apical.Concentric remodeling of the left ventricle w/segmental wall motion abnormality mean?
Consequences: Description is very typical reflection for consequences of long term uncontrolled high cholesterol and blood pressure. I also guess that you might have had heart attack in past. (silent infarct?). Practically this mean that your heart is no longer as efficient pumping blood through your body as it used to be. You definitely need to be under care and see your doctor regularly to avoid worsening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Reversible defect ant wall/apex. No fixed defects. Lv motion & thickning incl. Apex. Efr 55%. Ant/apical ischemia. Normal lv wall motion. What to do?
Echocardiogram: evidence of left ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality. Mildly decreased systolic function. Wall motion abnormalities. Means?
Motion of the intraventricular septum is consistent with elevated RV systolic pressure. Motion of the intraventricular septum: septal bounce consistent with inter-ventricular conduction" mean?
Abnl septal motion: When the heart contracts, all the left ventricular walls should move together, including the interventricular septum. Abnormal motion of the interventricluar septum is where the interventricluar septum is NOT moving simultaneously with the other left ventricular walls, and can be due to high pulmonary pressures, abnormal electrical conduction through the heart, like left bundle branch block. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
“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
Normal left ventricular dimension with segmental wall motion abnormality suggestive of CAD with adequate systolic function. What's the meaning?
Mild left ventricular systolic dysfunctionLeft ventricular ejection fraction 40 % with global left ventricular hypokinesis,Myxomatousmorphology mv?
Heart: With this diagnosis you need to be under the supervision of a cardiologist and follow his advice. ...Read more
Heart dysfunction: Dilatation of left ventricle can commonly ve related to coronary artery disease and episodes of ischemia and infarction. The muscle inferioly and posteriorly does not contract normally due to damaged muscle. Left ventricula dilation can be secondary to the damage to the left ventricle. This ventricle pumps blood to all the organs of the body..Meidcations can sometimes strengthen heart.Contraction. ...Read more
ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?
MVP: Your echocardiogram is not perfectly normal as it shows mild mitral valve prolapse. All other parameters are normal. MVP is very common and very often causes no problems. Nevertheless I recommend periodic follow-up by a cardiologist as the mvp can worsen, cause atrial arrhythmias and atypical chest discomfort. Very often a click can be heard on stethoscope examination of the heart. ...Read more
Perfusion & fixed defects in the mid anteroseptal, inferoseptal, inferoapical , inferior, apical septal segments with new lbbb?Heart attack or artifact?
Abnormal septal motion in ventricle, EF 60-65% small LA and LV normal in thickness gd systolic function and sinus tachy 120bpm pulmonary Hypertension?
Small left sided heart with abnormal septal motion in ventricle EF 60-65% heart is normal including thickness. Possible pulmonary hypertension cause?
MRI: If you have severe pulmonary hypertension, you may have Primary Pulmonary Hypertension. This is potentially a serious diagnosis. Intracardiac and intrapulmonary shunting must be ruled out. A cardiac MRI and nuclear shunt test can make this determination. These tests are likely only available at a major referral center - London. Good luck. ...Read more
Stress echo imaging abnormal a mild wall motion abnormality in distal anterior septum. Ejection fraction did not increase appropriately falling to 55%?
Echo: Those findings suggest disease in the left anterior descending artery. The ef at 55per cent is good. ...Read more
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 scarred ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a mod-lg pericardial effusion echo said slight hypokinesis posterior interventricular septum & inferior wall & reduced LV sys function. explain?
Get cardiac consult: The Echo findings you report -there is fluid around the heart - moderate to large in amount . The change in the motion of the heart and reduced LV function indicates the heart is not pumping normally . The result definitely warrants a consultation with a Cardiologist and some background history . You will likely need further tests ...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
Stress Echo-What does decreased left ventricular volume and hyperdynamic left ventricular systolic function mean?
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
