What Is The Significance Of Anteroseptal Ischemia
Several: This just refers to the location in the heart of a lack of blood supply. The possible treatments are medication, angioplasty with stent, or surgery (bypass operation) if there is a blockage. If the reason for the problem is something other than a blockage, such as anemia or lung disease resulting in a low oxygen, then the treatment would be directed at correcting the primary problem. ...Read more
Could be: The anteroseptal area is supplied by an important artery-the left anterior descending artery that ischemia in this region can potentially trigger a lethal arrhythmia Leading to a cardiac arrest even when the artery is still partially open. More important ishemia is a warning that a potentially dangerous situation exists and needs attention ...Read more
Small to med size perfusion defect of mild to modrate intensity involv da antero-septal wall.76% predict HR is +ve for inducible ischemia. Treat line?
LVEF 41% at stress. Reversible ischemia involving apicoanterior, distal anteroseptal. Reduced, non reversible perfusion involving the mid basal. Means?
Abnormal stress trst: Means you need to see a cardiologist for further testing to evaluate your heart for possible blockages in the arteries that supply your heart muscle. ...Read more
“stress-induced ischemia of anteroseptal wall apex, basal inferoseptal wall, ischemic cardiomyopathy w/severe L ventricular systolic dysf, ref 30%.
Not good: You need a close follow up with a cardiologist for the rest of your life, if you smoke, try to quit ASAP ...Read more
My ekg showed probable anterosrptal ischemia and short pr wave. My doc said the info shows up on numerous pts. And not to worry. Should I be concerned?
If my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what does that mean? Have I ever had an heart attack before?
Stress test show positive for ischemia involving the anteroseptal and apical septal walls and the apex. Also four beat runs of V-tach. Please explain?
What do you suggest if my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what that means have I every had an heart attack before?
Ischemia with stress: Hi. Without seeing the test done or the report, we can't say whether or not you've had a heart attack before. At the least, when you exercise and heart muscle oxygen demand goes up, not enough oxygen gets to the anterior wall and the septum to meet the demand. You need coronary angiography, and may need a stent or a bypass operation; you'll need medical therapy in any event. Ask your cardiologist ...Read more
39 yr old male weightlifter. Hypertension palps. Ekg says old antero septal infarct. Consider inferior ischemia. I don't believe it. No pain w exercise?
What is small antero septal ischemia vs. Attenutaion? Does it mean a heart attack? What is a left ventricle hypertrophy?
Stress echo showed ischemia in anteroseptal n apical septal walls n the apex. Next week is the Heart CATH. Could it be normal arteries n echo was wrong?
See below: Ischemia implies insufficient blood flow. Myocardial (heart) ischemia is usually due to plaque obstructing blood flow. It can also be due to coronary artery spasm (especially in smokers). Ischemia often causes chest pains but can be painless (silent ischemia). Medical therapy is preferred to control risk factors. Invasive therapy such as angioplasty or bypass surgery is for unstable patients. ...Read more
Lack of Oxygen: "ischemia" refers to any condition in which insufficient levels of oxygen are delivered to the tissues. Since oxygen is necessary for cell and tissue function, ischemia can cause symptoms, abnormal organ function and cell/tissue death. In the heart, for example, ischemia can result in chest pain and shortness of breath, loss of muscle strength and pump function and heart attack. ...Read more
Location: Ischemia is a term meaning that that part of an organ (the heart in this case) is not getting enough blood and oxygen. Anteroapical just refers to the locasion of the blockage. Antero means front of, and apical refers to the apex of the heart, the part that is directed down and to the left, on the opposite side to the aorta. ...Read more
Permanent damage: If pictures of the heart during a stress test show a hole in the heart muscle which is there both at rest and during exercise, it indicates that that area has been permanently damaged. No use doing a bypass or angioplasty for that. The damage is done and cannot be reversed. ...Read more
Artery blocked: That is just describing the anatomic location of the area of the heart not getting enough blood because of a blockage in a coronary artery. The significance of the blockage itself is that on could cause pain and lead to a heart attack with damage to that part of the muscle. ...Read more
Location: Anterolateral is just the description of the location - in front and to the side - where ischemia is seen in a myocardial perfusion scan. The ischemia - lack of blood flow and therefore oxygen to part of the heart is what is significant! Anytime there is insufficient or no blood flow to part of the heart it is critical to restore this flow as soon as possible. ...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 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
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
