In brief: Poor blood flow

Ischemia is when there is less blood flow or delivery of oxygen to tissue than needed.
Lateral ischemia means that this is happening to the left sidewall of the pumping chamber of the heart. This is usually related to blockage in the flow of blood in the coronaries, blood vessels that feed the heart muscle.
