What is the significance of a mild 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 needs workup and treatment!
Coronary artery Ds. Ischemia means diminished blood supply, so in the case of coronary ischemia, decreased blood supply to the heart. While mild ischemia is used to quantify the degree or severity of blood flow diminution, any degree of ischemia signifies the presence of coronary artery disease.

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...
