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

What does it mean to be mildly positive to ischemia?

Some ischemia: Don't ever hesitate to ask your doctor to explain a term used during your visit! in general mild ischemia means that there is some documented reduction (inadequate) in the normal flow of blood, i.e. Ischemia. I don't know what kind of test you had or if you are referring to your heart or some other part of your body. Without more information i cannot be more specific. ...Read more

What does it mean mildly positive to ischemia?

What does it mean mildly positive to 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

Result as I mentioned above, ie: mildly positive to ischemia?

Not sure: Please be more clear about your question. If you're referring to an earlier question, please reference it. If you had a stress test and the results were positive for ischemia, then you need to see a cardiologist for further evaluation, but that is the extent of advice i can give you with the limited insight I have in your problem right now. ...Read more

The test is positive for reversible/provocable ischemia . What does it mean can you please answer me?

I assume this: is result of cardiac stress test. If so, it means you probably need a cardiac cath, depending on your risk factors. You must follow up with your doctor asap. ...Read more

I had a stress test yesterday. the final impression is ' stress mildly positive for ischemia at adequate workload " pl explain?

I had a stress test yesterday. the final impression is ' stress mildly positive for ischemia at adequate workload " pl explain?

Positive: This means that they did see signs of ekg changes when you reached a certain level of exertion. This would warrant further evaluation with imaging stress test or angiography-depending on cardiologist's choice. ...Read more

So i had stress test done it ame back ok but they said i had reversible ischemia what's that mean am i gonna die? And had 10% positives in the test

So i had stress test done it ame back ok but they said i had reversible ischemia what's that mean am i gonna die? And had 10% positives in the test

Coronary angiogram: Reversible ischemia means that when you exercise part of heart muscle is deprived of blood supply. You are not going to die, but should consult with a cardiologist to see if you need coronary angiogram. Your heart should be at resting stage. Avoid any exercise until you have the work up done. Stress test can be sometime wrong. At age 31 i dont expect you to have coronary artery disease. ...Read more

My treadmill test positive for provocable ischemia with rescued specificity....What does it means?What can I do now?

More info: Not sure exactly what type of test was done and why a young pt like you was stressed. If no imaging was used i suppose a stress test with ecocardiographic imaging would be helpful. How far did you walk and what are your risk factors would be helpful as well. ...Read more

What does a positive stress test for pro-vocable mayocardial ischemia mean?

What does a positive stress test for pro-vocable mayocardial ischemia mean?

Blockage: It means that when your heart needs it, your arteries are incapable of delivering blood evenly and sufficiently to all of the heart muscle. This often means blockages in the heart arteries. Your cardiologist can tell you more. ...Read more

If my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what does that mean? Have I ever had an heart attack before?

If my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what does that mean? Have I ever had an heart attack before?

Not necessarily: You need confirmatory testing for this abnormal finding. A high grade blockage in a heart artery could cause this even if you have not had a heart attack. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall , what that means have I every had an heart attack before?

What do you suggest if my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall , what that means have I every had an heart attack before?

Ischemia with stress: Hi. Without seeing the test done or the report, we can't say whether or not you've had a heart attack before. At the least, when you exercise and heart muscle oxygen demand goes up, not enough oxygen gets to the anterior wall and the septum to meet the demand. You need coronary angiography, and may need a stent or a bypass operation; you'll need medical therapy in any event. Ask your cardiologist ...Read more

My stress test results read " positive exercise stress test for ischemia by EKG criteria. What does that mean?

My stress test results read " positive exercise stress test for ischemia by EKG criteria. What does that mean?

This means that the: EKG portion of your stress test had changes in the waveforms that have been known to be associated with blockages of the coronary arteries. Unfortunately, greater than 15% of the time this is inaccurate in women. Less than 5% of the time in men. This is why we always do stress testing in women along with nuclear imaging. If the nuclear imaging is negative then the EKG changes are FALSE positive. ...Read more

What does reversible ischemia mean?

What does reversible ischemia mean?

At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. ...Read more

What does "reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" mean?

Ischemia: This term is a desciption of the fact that the front and left sides of the left ventricle are not getting enough blood during stress situations. The left ventricle is the main part of the heart. The term reversible means that during stress this part of the heart does not get enough blood and it implies that the artery going to that part of the heart has a blockage. ...Read more
