What Is 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
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?
My treadmill test positive for provocable ischemia with rescued specificity.... What does it mean? What can I do now?
My stress treadmill test positive for provocable ischemia with resuced specificity... What can I do now?
Heart cath: Go see a good cardiologist, he/she will review test and may recommend a heart cath. ...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.?
Recently during my annual health checkup I have gone tmt test, the result is "test is positive for provocable myocardial ischaemia". What this mean.
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?
Atherosclerosis: The formation of the atheromatous plaque, which comprises 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
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
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
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
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
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
Yes: As we in pathology use the word "ischemia", it simply means less total blood flow than the organ is requesting. Especially while you're conditioning your heart, you push it to the maximum and the organs request more -- the ischemia is reflected in increased lactic acid levels in the blood. Clinicians use the term for "infarction", in which tissue dies -- won't happen from exercise. ...Read more
Reduced blood supply: The septum of the heart is the wall inside the heart that separates the heart chambers from each other. Ischemia in this area indicates narrowing in one of the arteries to this muscle area, usually from hardening of the arteries. It indicates some degree of heart disease. You should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. ...Read more
Location& blood flow: It depends. S the ischemia reverisble or irreversible? Was it detected on a nuclear stress test? Assume it's reversible as seen in a nuclear stress test. Apical refers to the location — at the apex. As for significance, along with other indications, I might suggest a clinical correlation via an angiogram or ccta. The significance could not be determined without a cath or cct. ...Read more
I assume: You mean your EKG suggest lateral ischemia and LVH(which is short for left ventricular hypertrophy). Interpreting ischemic changes is difficult without knowing the history behind the EKG, but from what you mention it appears that you have some changes on your EKG that "could" be related to coronary disease. LVH on EKG suggests that the left side of your heart "could" be thickened. ...Read more
