Avatar m tn I ask the Cardio Doc about the dangers of the Persantine stress test, he say that the Persantine drug dont stimulate the heart in the same way than the Doputamine and that I will feel weak, will have headache cause of the vasodilation (already have chronic headache), a drop of blood pressure and small increase of the heart beat, he said it's an easier test with less side-effects than the Dobutamine test and more accurate since it's a nuclear imaging test, who is better than the usual e
Avatar n tn At the hospital the cardiologist recommended an angiogram or nuclear stress test. The nuclear test showed the following results: "The estimated left ventricular ejection fraction is about 60% which is normal. There is suggestion of mild left ventricular chamber dilatation with Persantine stress, in particular, with a TID inde of 1.15. This is a nonspecific finding and may or may not reflect some underlying multivessel coronary artery disease.
Avatar f tn My results of Persantine Nuclear Scan: Stress and Rest Perfusion images demonstrated moderate sized mild severity partially reversible mid anterior perfusion defect. Raw images demonstrated evidence of breast attenuation. Resting end-diastolic vol is 93mls and post stress is 101. Resting end systolic vol is 32mls and post stress is 35mls What does this mean? What can I expect? My doc wants to do a cath, is this necessary?
Avatar f tn I had this test done - Persantine thallium stress test. The injection via IV, Persantine went in for 1.5 minutes only then the doctor want to terminate the test.

Avatar m tn From what I understand, a Persantine Pet Scan is a stress test not on a treadmill, but with medication to speed up your heart. Similar to that, I had a Thallium Stress test done four years ago after the CT-Scan with medication since they could not get an ECG on the treadmill - so far it looks like, we are even test wise (EF 74%). The cardiologist at the time said, don't worry you're going to live another 35 years. Since I was 75 at the time that would bring me up to 110 years.

Avatar n tn Yesterday I had a persantine nuclear test, I can't do a treadmill. During the test I experienced bad aching under my jaw. At that time ekg showd 2 mm ST depression (baseline is 1 mm) which resolved. I just felt lousey. Test completed and MD told tech to give me the aminophylline. Is this a common experience?
Avatar f tn It was recommended because she had a reversible inferior apical defect on a Cardiolite discovered during a persantine stress test. The doctor said she was not a candidate for open heart surgery because she also has significant COPD, Diabetes and Asthma. My question is: What does this mean? The cardiologist said he wouldn't do anything at this time.
Avatar m tn If Kitsos heart cath was normal why have a stress test?
Avatar f tn I have recently learned I have had a heart attack and would like an explanation of of the findings on the Persantine Stress test please. Is any of the damage considered to be reversible, would surgery be necessary at some point? Observations: There is severe perfusion defect involving the distal part of the anterior wall and extending to the apex. Resting Myocardial Perfusion Study: same observation. LV Function: The left ventricle is of normal size, there is apical hypokinesia.
Avatar n tn I had a resting persantine stress test. I was admitted for chest pain. The results were irreversible ischemia in the septal region & heterogeneous pattern diffusely. The DR at the hospital said all tests normal. When I was discharges the stress test report was mixed in with the usual discharg papers. This was in 2007. When I asked the Dr. what all the medical words meant. He said do not worry about it & would not answer.
Avatar n tn Some of the alternatives include aspirin, Clopidogrel (Plavix), ticlodipine (Ticlid), dipyridamole (Persantine). Another alternative is Heparin injection. Different situations require different levels of anticoagulation. It is important to discuss the best treatment option with a physician.
182884 tn?1259312906 Not having answers after going through that has to be the worst thing! I don't know what else to suggest other than what Jon said, coronary artery spasm (Prinzmetal's variant angina) is something you might ask your doctors about if they haven't already mentioned it. Though if they thought that might be the problem, they could have tested for it during your catheterisation by giving you a drug that induces spasm in people with that condition.
612551 tn?1450022175 I had my ProTime/INR test run last Friday. INR came in 1.7, my desired range is the usual 2 to 3. I have a log history of testing near 2.5 +/- 0.3 so I wonder if the Omega 3 might tend to make the blood clotting go up, like vitamin K, green salads....
Avatar f tn As you have been stable on these medications, your doctor has suggested you continue with the same. Aggrenox has both aspirin and dipyridamole extended release. Persantine is dipyridamole, but you will have to get extended release tablets as the two asprin and dipyridamole should not be taken together. Don’t change the medications without discussing with your doctor. So, consult him and then decide. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

182884 tn?1259312906 As far as my cardio doing it for no reason, I did have another test, the Persantine Cardioyte test, ( Stress test) and it did show up with abnormal results. that is why I was referred to the Cardiologist. He just was not sure about the Stress test results, and this test will decide what is going on. I do not think most dr.s would do a test with any kind of risks if there were no reason for it. I had an apparent MI one month ago, and that is why I had the Stress test to start with.
Avatar n tn Echo and persantine tests normal 3 months ago (done to evaluate for PH/copd) It was 9/10 and 10/10 severity nerve pain, not muscle, no brash, no acid in throat, etc. It lasted less than 10 minutes. I drank warm water and took a pepcid complete. Since it was so wide spread (waist to shoulder) am trying to figure out if this is just severe diffuse esophageal spasm (not up into neck like I get with 1-2x year esophageal spasm) or thoracic spine problem.
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor. On occasion, since having PM implanted 4 months ago, I have experienced increased awareness of heartbeat during the night(sensation of forceful beating is best way to describe this) the rhythm is regular, about 80 bpm (taken with stethoscope AND at radial/carotid pulse points). This can last all night, disrupting sleep. For the heck of it, I strapped on my Polar HR monitor last night and to my surprise it was registering anywhere from 190-220 BPM.
Avatar f tn It was " suggested " that I have a stress test. It's not mandatory so I'm wondering if I should have one done at all. Has anyone had a stress test? If so what did the results reveal?
Avatar f tn I have an apt today to do a stress test since am over due. I want to go in there informed, does anyone know what it is or whats going to happen?
Avatar f tn In a low risk pregnancy a non stress test or stress test would only be warranted if their was a concern. However diabetics (both gestational and non) have a higher rate of stillborn babies (still rare, but better to be safe) so its common practice to keep a closer eye as the pregnancy nears the end.
