What Is Negative Provocable Myocardial Ischaemia
Hello Doctor, recently I (boy, 26)did a ETT test where, in conclusion it said " ETT is negative for provocable myocardial ischaemia". What does it mean?
Recently I have gone tmt test, the result is "test is positive for provocable myocardial ischaemia" pl. Advise what I should do now.?
Recently during my annual health checkup I have gone tmt test, the result is "test is positive for provocable myocardial ischaemia".What this mean.
What mean, Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls?
Blocked arteries: This is used to describe blood flow to the heart. The fact that it is reversible indicates that you may benefit from intervention either stent or cabg. The next step is to verify the stress test results with cardiac Cath. The "culprit "vessel is likely right coronary or circumflex. ...Read more
I have "ecg evidence of exercise inducible myocardial ischaemia". So is this very serious problem?
Yes: It suggests that your exercise is causing a strain on your heart. Many professional athletes who undergo extensive and vigorous exercise often damage their hearts. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with severe ischaemia from myocardial perfusion imaging. What are the procedures or treatments do I need to undergo to treat this?
Coronary Angiogram: Your cardiologist would probably want you to have a coronary angio to see if there are blockages or narrowings of the coronary (heart) arteries. Such lesions may be treated by angioplasty/stenting or bypass surgery. Not all coronary artery lesions are amenable to such treatment and may require medical therapy. ...Read more
Can you briefly describe what is ischaemia? And is myocardial infarction the same with heart attack?
Myocardial ischemia: When the heart muscle can't get enough blood flow to supply its needs we call that ischemia. Narrowed arteries, anemia, overgrown muscle and other things can cause it. Chest pain, weakened heart muscle, rhythm problems and other abnormalities may result. It is treated by a combination of therapies. ...Read more
What does it mean if somebody has cmi? What's the difference between chronic mesenteric or myocardial ischemia?
Activity or emotion: The heart may have adequate blood flow to function normally at rest or lower levels of activity. However when you increase the nutrition needs of the heart as with exercise or strong emotions the blood flow is insufficient due to blockages and provokes ischemia which can be detected by various forms of stress test. Chest pain, shortness of breath & fatigue are the common symptoms of ischemia. ...Read more
Reversible severe myocardial ischemia 9%, ef 65 % mild infero lateral wall hypokinesia (m, 55yr, 80kg), what does this mean?
Findings: The first thing it means is that the patient and his doctor need to have a discussion of his status and what further steps if any are necessary. The studies reported above suggest that the patient has coronary artery disease and likely needs diet, exercise, not smoking, medications and perhaps other steps. ...Read more
Person has mild irreversible myocardial ischemia basal2/3of lateral, basal 2/3 of inferior and inferoseptal wall. How it can be treated and wt it mean?
See below: This suggests that there is a blockage in one of the arteries in your heart. Frequently the next step is a cardiac cath to further evaluate this. Discuss with your doctor and see a cardiologist for further recommendations. ...Read more
Maybe very serious: Ischemia means an area of the heart is not getting enough blood usually because of a blockage in an artery. The severity depends on whether it is a major artery or not. An intact occurs when the artery is completely blocked and the muscle dies. Angina is the pain felt when ischemia occurs. ...Read more
Very serious: True myocardial ischemia is very serious and life threatening and should receive immediate medical attention. There are numerous ways to treat it, recognizing it is most important. Typicallyconsists of burning chest pain or heaviness, sweating and anxiety; most often with exertion or heavy work. See doctor right away. ...Read more

Normal stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia but abnormal exercise stress at 9.1 mets? Reached 94% of hr.
Ur initial ST: Is more likely false positive. With ur young age and I presume with no risk factors like hypertension, diabetes, high lipids ; strong family history of heart disease, I won't worry about it. Follow up with ur pcp or cardiologist.

What does no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia mean after stress echo but abnormal exercise stress at 9.1 mets? Reached 94% of hr.
Talk to your doc: The "stress" portion of your stress test appears to be normal, as you reached a reasonable stress (9 mets), reached target heart rate and no ischemia was demonstrated. However, there may be "resting" abnormalities on the echo, hence it was called abnormal. Discuss with the ordering physician. ...Read more
Small myocardial infarction with Small -medium pharmacologically induced myocardial ischemia in that distribution. What are the the implications?
Reversible defect?: If you're describing what we term a "reversible defect", wherein the heart seems OK at rest and not OK when stimulated (by exercise or medication), then this would mean that area of the heart is still vulnerable to damage (heart attack). This needs to be addressed and treated. You may need cardiac catheterization to define the anatomy of the vessel supplying that area with blood. ...Read more
ECG: Possible abnormalities can possibly be meaningful or not. The best you can say is possibly serious. More information is needed, ask your Doc about you. ...Read more
