In brief: Insuff. blood flow

This is a way of saying that part of the heart is not getting enough blood (ischemia).
To help with localizing what part of the heart is affected, we divide the heart into (typically) six walls. This helps tie together stress test information with angiogram information so that we can target the right arteries for treatment if necessary. The anterior wall is the "front" part of the heart.
