I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall , what dose she means?

A problem: The heart is like a room with sides. These have anatomical names: anterior posterior septal the anterior-septal is at a junction. Ischemia is a sign of reduced blood flow with exercise( induced) or a chemical. It may require medication and even surgery to eliminate. ...Read more

Ischemia (Definition)

Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...Read more

What are the causes of ischemia?

Several: Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body. It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress. ...Read more

What are the causes inferolateral ischemia?

Not enough blood: Inferolateral generally refers to the location in the heart. Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body - I am assuming you are referring to your heart in this case - so the heart muscle is not getting enough blood. This can be caused by atherosclerosis or narrowing of the blood flow in the heart. ...Read more

Hi doc..what are the main cause of ischemia?

Hi doc..what are the main cause of ischemia?

Definition: ischemia: The term ischemia generally suggests a reduction of the blood supply to a given area of the body such that the functionality of that part of the body is impaired. Could be from a blockage in an artery delivering blood to that part of the body, or could be from a general reduction in blood supply to deliver to that part of the body. ...Read more

What generally causes ischemia?

Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises of a lipid laden core covered by a fibrous cap, is the pathophysiological hallmark of atherosclerosis. It is the acute rupture of such plaques that results in a clot (thrombus) that results in ischemia, which simply means inadequate blood flow. ...Read more

What is the major cause of inferior ischemia?

What is the major cause of inferior ischemia?

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 more

What causes anterior septal ischemia?

Reduced blood supply: The septum of the heart is the wall inside the heart that separates the heart chambers from each other. Ischemia in this area indicates narrowing in one of the arteries to this muscle area, usually from hardening of the arteries. It indicates some degree of heart disease. You should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. ...Read more

What does ischemia cause in the body?

Other way 'round: Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. ...Read more

Can too much exercise cause ischemia?

Can too much exercise cause ischemia?

Yes: As we in pathology use the word "ischemia", it simply means less total blood flow than the organ is requesting. Especially while you're conditioning your heart, you push it to the maximum and the organs request more -- the ischemia is reflected in increased lactic acid levels in the blood. Clinicians use the term for "infarction", in which tissue dies -- won't happen from exercise. ...Read more
