What Is Reversible Myocardial Ischemia
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
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
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
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
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
Excercise induced myocardial ischemia strongly positive at 90 percent mhr good excercise tolerance in a jogger no other symptoms what should I do?
See your Dr.: Talk to your dr. They will likely refer you to a cardiologist. ...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
What does it mean if somebody has cmi? What's the difference between chronic mesenteric or myocardial ischemia?
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
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. Take care and mabuhay! Http://www. M.Webmd. Com/heart-disease/guide/stress-test-- (dupe). Tp://www. Heart. Org/heartorg/gettinghealthy/gettinghealthy_ucm_001078_subhomepage. Js. ...Read more
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
Two doctors found a suggestion of myocardial ischemia, had a heart cath and was clean? What does that mean if they both saw something?
Tests: Tests are not always 'right'. Whatever test was interpreted as 'suggestion of ischemia', was likely not specific in this case ...Read more
Ischemia vs MI: Cholesterol plaque develops in the heart arteries. Progressive narrowing - usually greater than 70% - can lead to lack of blood flow to the heart muscle during exercise or rest and causes angina or ischemia. Myocardial infarction is due to the rupture of a plaque which causes a blood clot to form (thrombosis) in the artery blocking blood flow to that area of the heart muscle which then dies. ...Read more
MI: Ischemia is a state of insufficient blood supply to an organ, in this case the heart. When the condition persists it causes death of the tissue/organ - myocardial infarction. The cause of limited supply can be a narrowing of the supplying blood vessel, a blood cloth (thrombosis), a combination of both, or an increased tissue energy need such as in fever/sepsis etc... ...Read more
