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 reversible ischemia?

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 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 reversible 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 but mild is mild reversible means it was treated and improved. ...Read more

What does reversible ischemia mean?

What does reversible ischemia mean?

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 more

What is reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall?

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 more

What does "reversible ischemia of the anterior lateral wall" mean?

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 more

How long dose reversible ischemia take to heal if you make changes now?

How long dose reversible ischemia take to heal if you make changes now?

Long term changes: Smoking cessation, healthy diet, guided exercise program, weight loss towards ideal body weight, good control of BP and diabetes, keeping cholesterol low with statins, Aspirin and/ or clopidogrel can all facilitate gradual improvement of ischemia by plaque stabilisation, remodelling & development of collaterals. A vegan diet low in fat and sweets can greatly benefit the driven patient. ...Read more

Mibi scan shows diffuse reversible ischemia in keeping with angina?

Mibi scan shows diffuse reversible ischemia in keeping with angina?

Heart disease: Angina means chest pain caused by the heart. This usually comes from clogged arteries. As the arteries initially clog, blood can still get around the blockage and is reversible. This can eventually progress to a worsening blockage where blood can't get around it. This usually results in what is known as a heart attack. Reversible is good but it's important to prevent it from getting worse. ...Read more

Hi doctors, can you tell me what is reversible ischemia of the anter lateral wall?

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 more

The test is positive for reversible/provocable ischemia . What does it mean can you please answer me?

I assume this: is result of cardiac stress test. If so, it means you probably need a cardiac cath, depending on your risk factors. You must follow up with your doctor asap. ...Read more

Is cerebral ischemia reversible?

Yes : Transient ischemic attack is cerebral ischemia that results in transient neurologic dysfunction without acute infarction. Symptoms last for minutes to 24 hr and is transient and therefore reversible. ...Read more

My mother has ischemia. Is this reversible? How is it typically treated?

My mother has ischemia. Is this reversible? How is it typically treated?

Definition: ischemia: The term ischemia generally suggests a reduction of the blood supply to a given area of the body such that the functionality of that part of the body is impaired. Could be from a blockage in an artery delivering blood to that part of the body, or could be from a general reduction in blood supply to deliver to that part of the body. Treatment would be dictated by the cause. ...Read more

Is ischemia reversible? What is the most recommended medical treatment?

Is ischemia reversible? What is the most recommended medical treatment?

Too many questions: Ischemia can be reversible or irreversible.Where is the ischemia?Is it reversible? How was the determination of ischemia made?Depending on the location of the ischemia - which is insufficient blood flow to any part of the body - the 1st step would be confirmation of the diagnosis usually by an angiogram. If the ischemia is reversible, and depending on location, it might be revascularized. ...Read more

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

My stress test results were read to me over the phone by a nurse. What does large anterior reversible midlateral ischemia mean.

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

Equivocal anterior wall small area of reversible ischemia; artifact is also possible, EF maintained at 64%. What does this mean?

Complicated: You have a complicated problem. The issue is to do a cath or no cath. Why was the study done? Do you have angina or its equivalent? Did you walk on a treadmill? If you achieved 10 mets, your prognosis is excellent without intervention. With no sx, I usually repeat the test in 4-6 months. If high risk factors are present and renal function is nl, cath is low risk and will clear the air. ...Read more

Very mild reversible ischemia my stress test shows there is very mild ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD territory.What is that mean?

Reduced blood supply: Ischemia means reduced blood supply to a part or muscle. The lad refers to one wall of the heart. This means you should follow up with your doctor or a cardiologist. You are at risk for heart disease, but it doesn't tell you how great is the risk. ...Read more

Very mild reversible ischemia my stress test shows there is very mild ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD territory.What does that mean?

Blood flow: Reversible ischemia means that an area of your heart muscle is not getting adequate blood flow (at times) but then the blood flow "catches up" (i.e. Reversible). The lad is the left anterior descending coronary artery - it's an important blood vessel. The lad may have a blockage - would recommend seeing your cardiologist. ...Read more
