What Is Myocardial Infraction
Heart stroke: A heart stroke is also known as a myocardial infarction or heart attack. A blood clot forms in a heart blood vessel. This cuts off flow to a part of the heart and that part dies. This can cause pain, rhythm and pumping disturbances. These things can result in disability or death. ...Read more
Heart attack: Myocardial infarction mean death ("infarction") of heart muscle (card ~heart and myo~muscle). This happens when the heart muscle is not getting the oxygen it needs over a relatively long period of time. This can happen from a narrowing of a blood vessel which reduces flow or from a suddenly, totally blocked vessel. The heart can't stop working, so that part keeps trying to pump blood until the the ...Read more
Various: The st segment is a portion of the electrocardiogram. A myocardial infarction can be described as st elevation myocardial infarction or non-st elevation myocardial infarction depending on the appearance of the electrocardiogram. Management of the 2 types of heart attack are somewhat different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A heart attack : The septum is the wall that separates the right from the left side of the heart. Myocardial infarction, a heart attack, is caused by a blocked artery in the heart. If the artery blocked supplies the blood to the septum the result is called a septal myocardial infarction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many poss causes: An inferior mi refers to a heart attack on the inferior wall of the heart muscle. Almost all heart attacks are the result of fatty deposits on the inside of arteries that break open and cause clotting which will blocks the artery (and the blood from flowing to the part of the heart the artery feeds). Family history, fatty diet, smoking, high blood pressure all contribute to this process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Let me try to: Myocardial perfusion scan is a nuclear medicine procedure that illustrates the function of the heart muscle (myocardium). It evaluates many heart conditions from coronary artery disease to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and myocardial wall motion abnormalities. The function of the myocardium is also evaluated by calculating the left ventricular ejection fraction (lvef) of the heart. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Lack of blood flow: Ischaemia (or ischemia) refers to the state of a lack of adequate oxygen to a tissue, or an imbalance between supply and demand; since blood carries oxygen to tissues, ischaemia occurs when blood flow is limited by a narrowed artery, or a muscle is exercised beyond the capacity of its blood vessels to supply blood flow. It merits an evaluation to determine its cause and therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
