What Can Be The Consequences A Small Area Of Ischemia At The Apex Of The Heart
Angina and MI: If you really have ischemia at the apex, there may be no consequences if it's chronic. Over-exertion could potentially cause angina. If it's unstable, a heart attack (mi) could result. But be aware that shifting soft tissue on nuclear stress testing often leads to a reading of "a small area of apical ischemia" which is a false positive due to technical issues. Is your "ischemia" confirmed by cath? ...Read more
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 is the outcome and process if you are diagnosed with mod to severe ischemia of inferior heart. what is next ?
Can you tell me what reversible ischemia in the basal and mid inferior walls of the heart means please?
"Significant" block: Infer you have had an imaging study, using exercise or a pharmacologic agent to induce or provoke ischemia, and then using an imaging agent like a radioactive tracer, to show blood flow distribution. Subtracting a resting image from the "stress" image shows what areas have inadequate blood flow. Since the blood comes from the coronary arteries, a reversible image implies partial, not total, block. ...Read more
