My echocardiogram showed reduced basal septum contraction and basal inferior akinesia does this indicated cardiomyopathy? Normal EF.

My echocardiogram showed reduced basal septum contraction and basal inferior akinesia does this indicated cardiomyopathy? Normal EF.

Echocardiogram: If you are a 23y/o male and without symptoms and your echo shows what you indicate, I'd get a second opinion first before assuming the abnormalities are real.

That area of the heart however is difficult to interpret and perhaps the reading is debatable. ...Read more

Complex question: The changes on echo you describe are complex, and sound more like the changes one would expect in coronary artery disease, which would be very unusual in a woman your age. See the doctor who ordered the echo. And if need be a cardiologist, which will likely be necessary. Good luck. ...Read more
