What Is Reversible Ischemia
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". 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
At risk tissue: Reversible ischemia is usually used to describe an area of the heart muscle that has normal perfusion at rest on a stress test then exhibits poor blood flow when the patient is exercising or given the chemical stress. This indicates an area at high risk for damage if the patient stresses their heart with surgery or exercise. This is where a stent or surgery could help improve the heart function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Partial blockage: "Reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" likely came from a nuclear stress test report. It suggests that part of the heart does not get enough oxygen when stressed (example: during exercise), but does get enough oxygen when at rest. This can happen if there is a partial blockage of an artery.Symptom may be chest pressure or pain when walking. Follow-up with the doctor is very important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia: This term is a desciption of the fact that the front and left sides of the left ventricle are not getting enough blood during stress situations. The left ventricle is the main part of the heart. The term reversible means that during stress this part of the heart does not get enough blood and it implies that the artery going to that part of the heart has a blockage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Scintographic findin: It's a description, typically from a perfusion scan - generally with a stress test - suggesting a blockage that affects the front/side wall of the left ventricle such that circulation is normal at rest but relatively insufficient with exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me what reversible ischemia in the basal and mid inferior walls of the heart means please?
"Significant" block: Infer you have had an imaging study, using exercise or a pharmacologic agent to induce or provoke ischemia, and then using an imaging agent like a radioactive tracer, to show blood flow distribution. Subtracting a resting image from the "stress" image shows what areas have inadequate blood flow. Since the blood comes from the coronary arteries, a reversible image implies partial, not total, block. ...Read more
My stress test results were read to me over the phone by a nurse. What does large anterior reversible midlateral ischemia mean.
Heart of the matter: Please speak with your doctor himself or herself, so you can get individualized answers. The nurse's report sounds like you have signs of reversible damage to the front part of your heart muscle, from not enough oxygenated blood nourishing it. Your doctor can share his/her interpretations of these results, & make suggestions based on your whole evaluation. ...Read more
Coronary narrowing: Ischemia (which is found on a stress test) connotes heart muscle not getting enough blood flow to meet its needs. Mild ischemia implies that the defect showing up on stress test is more subtle, i.e. That there is slightly less blood flow to the area during stress than at rest. It usually means the severity of underling narrowing is less, though by definition it is still enough to limit flow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
