What does it mean if the ECG showed signs of ischemia in the postural valve?

In brief: Posterior wall?

You probably meant to say posterior wall, instead of posterior valve.
But it probably means there is a blockage in the coronary artery that is feeding the posterior wall of your heart. This can be confirmed with a coronary angiogram and potentially fixed with coronary angioplasty and stent placement or else coronary bypass surgery.

In brief: Lack of blood flow

First to clarify: there's no such thing as the "postural valve.
" ekgs can show signs of ischemia in certain regions of the heart muscle, which means there could be a lack of blood flow to those areas, often caused by clogged arteries.
