I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall , what dose she means?

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 is the significance of provocable ischemia?

What is the significance of provocable ischemia?

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 more

Said "provocable ischemia of interior (anterior?

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

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

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

My mother's report says "Mild provocable ischemia noted in apico-anterolateral and mid-anterolateral segment of left ventricle." What does this mean ?

Provocable ischemia: means induced poor or lack of blood flow to a particular organ. In this case, a particular area of the heart. Usually occurs when the coronary arteries, the arteries that feed the heart, are clogged or compressed. Typically worsens with exertion, when the arteries are clogged. Reduction in cholesterol & BP by eating healthier helps as well as if serious disease, stent placement to keep flow going ...Read more

Recently I have gone tmt test , the result is "test is positive for provocable myocardial ischaemia" pl. Advise what I should do now.?

Heart cath.?: Depends on why you had the stress test in the first place, for chest pain? If so, and the test was positive, you need a cardiac cath. And possibly a stent. If you had no symptoms, you might repeat the stress test with a nuclear tracer or echocardiogram. ...Read more

What generally causes ischemia?

What generally causes ischemia?

Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises of a lipid laden core covered by a fibrous cap, is the pathophysiological hallmark of atherosclerosis. It is the acute rupture of such plaques that results in a clot (thrombus) that results in ischemia, which simply means inadequate blood flow. ...Read more

What are the causes of ischemia?

Several: Ischemia is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body. It can be caused by thick heart, narrowing of the arteries with plaque build up (artherosclerosis), very fast heart rate, very high blood pressure or low heart rate or low blood pressure, drugs causing vaso constriction such as cocaine, smoking, methamphetamine, and high level of stress. ...Read more

Is ischemia deadly?

Is ischemia deadly?

Can be: Yes, ischemia can be deadly. Ischemia is caused by inadequate blood supply, and therefore inadequate oxygen supply to a part of the body. There is reversible - the tissue recovers when blood flow is restored - and irreversible ischemia - the latter resulting in tissue death. Ischemia can potentially occur anywhere in the body. If the ischemia is irreversible, the nearby tissue will die. ...Read more

Is ischemia curable?

Is ischemia curable?

Yes: Ischemia refers to inadequate blood flow to the heart or other organs. Various techniques such as angioplasty and stents or surgical bypass operations can increase blood flow. Drugs like statins can slow the progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Drugs like Aspirin can decrease the risk of blood clots forming on the walls of rough or narrowed arteries. ...Read more

What is lateral wall ischemia?

Poor blood flow: Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed. Lateral ischemia means that this is happening to the left sidewall of the pumping chamber of the heart. This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle. ...Read more

What is inferior basal ischemia?

What is inferior basal ischemia?

Ischemia means : Decreased blood flow. I'm not sure if u are referring to the inferior basal part of the heart or the basal ganglia in the brain. Wherever it is, it suggests impaired blood flow and circulation related to high blood pressure, aging, diabetes, high cholesterol and smoking.Follow up with your dr. Take care! ...Read more
