What Is The Significance Of Reversible Ischemia
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
