Avatar m tn I just completed a tread mill stress test and a nuclear stress test. Briefly, the results are: 1) attained 100% target heart rate, no chest pains, no arrhythmia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) Moderate size infereior ischemia 4.) ECG is positive for ischemia at good workload (reached heart rate of 143). I've formed a preliminary impression from my research on the Internet, but I would appreciate professional feedback. I am scheduled for a heart catheterization. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I am female, 55. I recently had a nuclear stress test. The results say that they revealed an inferior fixed defect, ejection fraction of 44% with glocal kypokinesis. Can you please explain these results? Also said my Doppler study was suboptimal what does that mean?
Avatar m tn Results of Nuclear Stress Test Analysis of the images demonstrates a small reversible perfusion abnormality in the distal anterolateral wall near the apex. Remaining perfusion is unremarkable. the myocardial thickness is normal and the luminal diammeter is unremarkable. The gated study demonstrates normal wall motion with a normal ejection fraction at greater than 70 percent Impression : Small reversible perfusion abnormality in the distal anterolateral wall suspicious for ischemia.
Avatar n tn Hi Anjulito, It is hard to know how much weight to put into these results. Was this an exercise stress test with nuclear imaging? I know you want to know specifics, but my approach is to be a bit more general. I think people get lost in details of studies and medications and miss the big picture. Regarding the results of the nuclear imaging,it appears that year heart pumping function is mildly reduced. If the results are correct, there is muscle damage to your heart.
Avatar m tn I recently took a treadmill stress test and nuclear stress test. Basically, the conclusions are that I have: 1) moderate size inferior ischemia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) ECG is positive for ischemia at a good workload. No chest pains, no arrhythmia. I've research the Internet and have reached a tentative first impression, but would appreciate any professional feedback on the above three conclusions. I am being scheduled for a heart catheterization. Thank you.
Avatar n tn ) and reiterated that I was too young to have this going on and that due to my syptoms, the family history and results of the Stress test that I needed to have the cath done. During a cath are they always able to stent the artery open? How bad would it have to be for them to go to a bypass instead of a stent? Sorry for so many questions, just very anxious. Thanks so very much.
Avatar n tn The laymans explanation of the stress test results suggest that he has had a heart attack before and that he has another area that has a significant blockage, but the tissue is still living. I hope this helps answer your questions. Good luck.
Avatar n tn My doctor has recommended a non-invasive CAT angiogram to see if perhaps the stress test is a false positive (which I have scheduled). If that test confirms the stress results, he recommends an invasive angiogram, I assume to get a more detailed picture of what is going on.
Avatar f tn My cardiologist told me that my heart rate was irregular and that my palpitations may be the result of hormonal changes.
