Common Questions and Answers about Stress test results the fed


Avatar f tn 6 degree grade. All looked well until the stress echo was taken then the results were as stated on the first post that I did. I did not have nor have I ever had any symptoms , no chest pains, labored breathing, not even during th stress test. I am thin, extremely active, low cholestrol, BP 90/60 and no symptoms. I am so shocked and terrified. I will be gong this after to pick up the written results of my heart CT scan fro yesterday.
Avatar f tn different doctor, ok we will lower dose, and send you to cardiologist, so off I go, have had ECHO that was fine, 24 HOUR ECG that was fine, Calcium CT scoring that was a little too high so was offered CT Angiogram, I asked for a different test as was beginning to think I would light up in the dark. waiting for exercise stress test next weds. Meantime blood test come back t3 and t4 "normal range" TSH " out of range" have to wait until next tuesday for appointment.
Avatar m tn The overall quaility of the study is good. The rotating raw images reveal breast attenuation. The right ventricle appears normal. Stress images demonstrates a small perfusion abnormality in the anterior wall. Rest images demonstrate a small perfusion abnormaility of mild intensity in teh anterior wall. Ejection Fraction of 72%. Mypocardial perfusion imaging is probably normal. The images reveal no ischemia. There is a small area of infarction in the anterior wall.
Avatar n tn Just based on the information you have provided the 65 and 70% occlusion are not usually treated and may be insignificant for any current medical problems. There was no perfusion problem (blood flow was not impeded) shown from the degree of exercise you experienced. Hope that helps.
Avatar m tn Today there is very little distinction between the two regarding treatment, and the education is the same accept the DO has an additional 300 to 500 additional study regarding the musculoskeletal system. Like M.D.s, osteopathic physicians are licensed at the state level. Osteopathic physicians who wish to specialize may become "board certified" (in much the same manner as M.D.
Avatar f tn My husband is 66 and recently had a SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Study (stress test). It was essentially normal, with the exception of the following: "there is a moderate sized reversible defect of the inferior and apical walls". The left ventricle was normal in size and the ejection fractions were 57% at rest and 63% post stress. The internet resources suggest that such a defect could be indicative of a prior silent heart attack. Is this true?
1076228 tn?1256348980 However, comparing the trace elements injected at rest at during the high heart rate period of the stress test may show that there is a blockage of an artery and during exercise, your heart is not getting enough blood in parts of it. The cath will give the doctor specific answers. I'd try to stress about it, but the period of time after a stress test and before a cath is always a worrisome time, I've gone through that a number of times.
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 f tn Thank you so much for responding to my post! Am so grateful and at a loss. I am a 44yr old female, 122lbs, recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's (autoimmune disease), Adrenal Fatigue and a variety of anemias all of which I am being treated for. As a toddler I had encephalitis of the brain accompanied by extremely high fevers. This spring I had to have removed a Thyroid nodule and I got the above-stated results during a pre-op test.
Avatar n tn 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 f tn The echo is too vague and the technician is concerned some of the results could be due to tissue density in the chest interfering with the imaging. The only way to be sure it isn't ischemia is to have an angiogram or ct scan.
Avatar f tn Also, unblocked vessels (less than 50%) is the usual cause for fatal heart attacks. It results because the usual tests only view the lumen (inner channel) but it does not show the soft and hard plaque between the inner wall and the outer smooth muscle. Most heart attacks happen when this soft plaque rutures the inner lining and develops clots.
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 imediate post-stress myocardial images show defect in the antero-apical and apical walls of the left ventrical. The overall size of the defect is small. Resting images show nearly complete normalization of these perfusion defects. In addition, prominent breast tissue attenuation artifact was noted. The patient had appropriate HR response, and appropriate BP response. Negative for chest pain, mildly positive for ischemic ECG changes, and negative for significant arrhythmia.
Avatar f tn I am new here. I am 44 and overweight, never smoked. Have had a lot of brain surgeries for Chiari Malformation/Hydrochepalus. Recently I have had shortness of breath...and so test showed low oxygen saturation upon exherstion. Test of lung were unremarkable...except for a "floppy" trachea that collapse by 50% on exhaling. Just has a chemical stress test done and am waiting to see a cardiologist on Friday.
907729 tn?1244174363 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.
Avatar m tn I had a stress test last week and today they told me these are the results: EF 69%, Test was abnormal - moderate sized, moderate intensity, reversible perfusion defect involving inferolateral wall. Moderate sized, moderate intensity fixed perfusion defect involving inferoseptal wall. They plan to do a cath, but there is a two week waiting list. How dangerous is this and should I wait the two weeks or go elsewhere?
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.
