I have told that I have induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall , what dose she means?

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

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 more

What is the significance of inferoapical ischemia?

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 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?

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 anteroseptal ischemia?

Unhappy heart: The anterior wall is the front
septum is the wall between ventricles

that part of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow.
Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. ...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 provocable ischemia?

What is the significance of 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

What is the significance of mirovascular ischemia?

Your small arteries: The smaller arteries can be just as important are the larger arteries in causing vasular disease and require intensive medical treatment to do well as they cannot be "bypassed" or fixed with balloons or stents. ...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

What is the significance of microvascular ischemia?

Can be significant: In the heart? In the brain? Microvascular simply refers to the tiny blood vessels, ischemia is a lack of oxygen due to insufficient blood flow. Unlike the larger vessels, where plaque is usually the limiting factor in blood flow, microvascular disfunction is usually due to damage or disease. ...Read more

What is the significance of coronary ischemia?

What is the significance of coronary ischemia?

Blood flow limited: It means that the heart muscle is not getting enough blood flow to meet its metabolic demands to carry out the required activities. This usually connotes a narrowing ("blockage") in one of the major coronary arteries that supplies heart muscle with blood, and hence oxygen. ...Read more

What is inferior ischemia?

Inferior WALL??: Could this be inferior wall ischemia? If so, this refers to the inferior wall of the heart, i.e. Location (bottom) of the ischemia. Ischemia indicates a lack of blood and therefore oxygen & nutrients to any part of the body, in this case the bottom of the heart. ...Read more

What symptoms suggest ischemia?

Pain: Ischemia refers to a lack of blood flow and circulation. This causes a significant decrease in oxygen delivery to the tissues that causes the tissues to undergo anaerobic metabolism. This then secretes Lactic Acid which causes pain. So pain is the first sign. ...Read more
