Stress test results ischemia

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test results ischemia


Avatar f tn I was just told that the results of my stress test indicate a possible blockage and I'll probably be having a heart cath. Should I limit my activity between now and my first visit with the cardiologist in 5 days? Two nurses have urged me to go to the ER if I have any symptoms before then ~ they've kind of freaked me out!
Avatar n tn Imaging portion of the stress test normal mean there was no induced ischemia during the perfusion phase of the test? Does previous ischemia mean there had been occlusions with intervional treatment?
Avatar f tn On my stress test results it states: 1mm horizontal ST depression noted at peak exercise which is positive for Ischemia. Is that very bad or possibly not so bad?
Avatar m tn I recently had a nuclear stress test. I already have 2 stents placed 12 yrs ago. Test results indicate mild to moderate size ischemia in lateral region. Dr not looking to do angiogram right now because I am not symptomatic. What do you think.
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 Im not sure from your interpretation, but it sounds negative. If there is any ambiguity in the EKG portion of a stress test a nuclear stress test can be performed. 2-Was the test results achieved good for aerobic sports, for free diving or for scuba diving ? Only the physician actually taking care of you can make recommendations for activity. 13 minutes is a good amount of time for a stress test. 3-Was the slow recovery pathological? There are a lot of parts of the stress test.
Avatar n tn Recently had a stress test and today got a call from my Primary Dr. with the results. He told me I had "Basal Mild Inserior Wall Ischemia. To call my Cardiologist and he would tell me the treatments. I would like to know what the treatments he might recommend.
Avatar f tn No significant EKG changes during vasodilator stress test. 2. Normal post stress resting left ventricular wall motion and ejection fraction of about 77%. 3. Mildly severe fixed defect involving the apical anterior wall, likely breast attenuation. 4. No reversible defects noted to indicate ischemia.
Avatar f tn I had a nuclear stress test & they found "mild ischemia in the inferior apical area" with an ejection fraction of 75%-I am symptomatic with angina and SOB & take toprol xl and imdur but still have some symptoms-what does the stress test mean in laymans terms-thanks
Avatar n tn They can't agree on why I did so well on the stress test. Q. Can some one do this well on a stress test, ie 13.5 minutes and still have major heart problems? What's next?
Avatar m tn It means that the supply of blood (and thus oxygen) is not sufficient during the maximum stress test, but that during rest it is (so the effect is reversible). The position where the heart blood supply is sometimes not sufficient is part of the wall of the left ventricle. The left ventricle is the part of the heart that queezes out the blood from the heart to the whole body. The pumping efficiency of the left ventricle may suffer from the lack of blood supply.
Avatar m tn I had a tread mill stress test and a nuclear stress test. Briefly, the results were: 1) reached 100% target heart rate, no chest pains, no arrhythmia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) moderate size inferior ischemia 4) ECG is positive for ischemia at a good workload (143 heart rate). I have formed a preliminary impression from my research on the Internet, but would appreciate feedback on the above 4 items. I havel scheduled a heart catherterization. Thank you.
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 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 f tn My husband just received his results from recent stress test. (He is 36 y/o. Father had first double bypass at 37 and died at 56, so there is a family history of heart issues.) Stress spect cardiolite images decreased cardiolite uptake in anterior and inferior walls. Spect cardiolite scan was positive for moderate amount of ischemia of anterior and inferior walls. Comments: 1. Anterior defect/possible soft tissue/breast attenuation artifact, 2.
Avatar n tn I had to have triple by pass surgery right after it. Could you please explain the recent stress test results to me? The patient exercised for 6 minutes and 53 seconds on the Bruce protocol, achieving 7.0 METS. He had a non-diagnostic ECG test for ischemia secondary to low heart rate, borderline functional capacity. The test was stopped secondary to fatigue. One minute prior to peak exercise the patient received 9.4 mCi of intravenous Cardiolite. A few hours later the patient received 30.
907729 tn?1244177963 I have been having chest pains and shortness of breath and the feeling that I am full. I am on many meds. I had another stress test and I am just not real sure of what the results all mean. Tried talking to my doctor, but he didn't explain it real well. he just said he wants to do another catherization. I was wondering if you can explain my results for the nuclear Spect Imaging Study? Findings: 1. Left ventricle appears at least borderline enlarged.
