Septal and usually the -tip of the heart is not getting adequate coronary blood flow. Usually left anterior descending artery blockage. Septal is the inner wall of muscle between the ventricles.

In brief: Idirect evidence

Stress tests using a nuclear tracer may show a defect on the scan if a blockage is present.
An anteroseptal defect is one that implicates the left anterior descending artery. Stress tests are a screening test and can have a 15% false positive rate.
