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

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 are treatments for 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

Please tell me if anteroseptal ischemia is fatal?

Please tell me if anteroseptal ischemia is fatal?

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

LVEF 41% at stress. Reversible ischemia involving apicoanterior, distal anteroseptal. Reduced, non reversible perfusion involving the mid basal. Means?

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

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?

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?

Not necessarily: You need confirmatory testing for this abnormal finding. A high grade blockage in a heart artery could cause this even if you have not had a heart attack. ...Read more

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?

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?

Artifact: It is likely that with a thick heart or LVH that the ekg shows those findings. Check with your doctor and an echocardiogram maybe helpful in confirming or refuting findings. ...Read more

What is the significance of ischemia?

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

What is the significance of a mild ischemia?

Poor perfusion: Ischemia is caused by low or inadequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to a tissue:
heart attack
stroke
amputation
renal failure
are sequellae of ischemia
needs workup and treatment! ...Read more

What is the significance of ischemia disorder?

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

What is the significance of reversible ischemia?

Muscle not dead: The nuclear picture of the heart shows a hole in the muscle during exercise (stress) but not at rest. The muscle is alive and not permanently damaged. A bypass or stent could prevent the damage from becoming permanent. ...Read more

What is the significance of anteroapical ischemia?

What is the significance of anteroapical ischemia?

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

What is the significance of irreversible ischemia?

What is the significance of irreversible ischemia?

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

What is the significance of inferoapical ischemia?

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

What is the significance of anterolateral ischemia?

What is the significance of anterolateral ischemia?

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

What is the significance of mild reversible ischemia?

What is the significance of mild reversible ischemia?

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

What is the significance of apical ischemia?

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

What is the significance of vascular ischemia?

What is the significance of vascular ischemia?

Claudication: Claudication - meaning leg, arm or organ pain during walking, stress or other condition that increase oxygen demand. That is, there is a mismatch between oxygen supply and oxygen demand. (ischemia means low blood flow, vascular means vessel.). ...Read more

What is the significance of myocardial ischemia?

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
