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
Blocked Heart Artery: Provocable ischemia occurs when a heart artery is blocked and exercise creates a condition where the heart muscle needs more blood than the artery can deliver. It may create the classic clinical symptom of angina pectoris or chest pain. Tests to diagnose provocable ischemia include the treadmill, nuclear stress/chemical testing, and stress echocardiography. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
