what is a anterior infarction?

A: Anterior infarction and its importance will help you as i have tried to summarize it from an article: The importance and urgency of reperfusion increase with the amount of myocardium at risk. Electrocardiography is an extremely useful tool for determining the location and size of an acute myocardial infarct, and every patient in the emergency room or coronary care unit deserves a physician who knows how to use electrocardiography to obtain that information1. In acute anterior-wall myocardial infarction, the amount of myocardium at risk corresponds to the number of precordial leads showing QRS and ST-segment changes...


Do you know what acute myocardial infarction means please?

A: myo= muscle cardial= pertaining to the heart it''s a heart attack. acute being a severe heart attack. Heart attack. That is the fancy name for a heart attack.

(i.e.: burst plaque in a coronary artery, spasm from drug use, thrombus (from a DVT) that has crossed a PFO (or hole in the heart)... etc.) acute means sudden. People who have an


what is common in hypertension, hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes and smoking that leads to acute myocardial infarction?

A: Dear Sir, Your question is very pointed. The common thread in these four etiologies is that they all cause microvasular disease. myocardial Infarction (heart attack) is caused by a lack of oxygen to the heart muscle (myocardium). This lack of oxygen (ischemia) is caused by either a blockage of the cardiac vessel supplying the heart muscle or due to contraction of these vessels. High blood pressure (hypertension, HTN) over time will make the vessels hard and non-compliant to changes required due to stress and oxygen demand. At some point, the vessels do not dilate to increase blood supply and...


what is acute Coronary Syndrome?

A: acute coronary syndrome is a constellation of symptoms which emerge when the supply of blood to the heart is restricted. When a patient presents with acute coronary syndrome, immediate intervention is required to determine what is causing the condition and address it before permanent damage occurs. A doctor can diagnose acute coronary syndrome with the assistance of an electrocardiogram (ECG) as well as bloodwork and a patient interview. The key symptom is chest pain, which may radiate along the jaw and left arm. Patients can also experience...

what Are The Contraindications To Thrombolytic Therapy For acute myocardial infarction? is Diabetic Retinopathy A Contraindication?

A: The thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction is done by streptokinase. It has some contraindication. The diabetic retinopathy is not the contraindication of this therapy. Only use with care is recommended. It means risk/benefits ratio should be evaluated and then the decision of therapy whether to start or not is done....

what is a inferior infarction?

A: An inferior infarction refers to a heart attack (myocardial infarction - MI) involving the inferior and possibly the posterior wall of the heart. This area of the heart is supplied blood by the right coronary artery and sometimes a part of it is supplied by a small branch of the left coronary artery. If the right coronary artery becomes diseases with lipid laden plaques, and a plaque ruptures, it can cause an infarction in the inferior or posterior walls of the heart. This will frequently cause chest pain, nausea, vomiting, sweating, shortness of breath, and possibly syncope. Sometimes, the only symptoms are nausea and vomiting, especially...


hi..please explan to me what this is...........nonischemic cardiomyopathy ejection fraction 35%...mild elevation of troponin secondary to congestive heart failure,but there is no acute myocardial infarction...........i have some other words too ..but i can only take them at time and study because i have brain damage very slowly,,please does anybody know what this is??????thank you very very very much i mean thay

A: Here is some information I found on Ejection fraction: Ejection fraction: what does it measure?. ejection fraction 25-30% ,with global hypoknesia and anterior wall hypokinesis..pulmmomary artery pressure mildy elevatedd 40 mmHg. no infacardiac sounds. CPK 216 and troponin-1 of 0.06, labeled as non-q myocardial iinfraction. me seth ..also sorry i accdentially added the empty things below but i don''t know how to take them off sorry seth Cardiomyopathy is a term for a weakened heart muscle. It can occur from many causes. One of the most common is ischemia or lack of blood flow like a heart attack....

what is Anteroseptal infarction?

A: An anteroseptal infarction is a heart problem where part of the heart muscle dies and scars due to poor blood supply. In this case, the tissue damage is centered around the anteroseptal wall, the area between the left and right ventricles. This can be dangerous for the patient. It is necessary to receive treatment to address the cause of the tissue death and prevent additional damage.. This condition usually occurs as a result of a partial blockage along one of the branches of the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. When the whole artery is blocked, it can cause an...


what is the difference between a stroke and a heart attack ? Which is more serious ?

A: a stroke is a verry little heart attack sometimes not noticed heart attack, because it can kill muscles in your heart and due to it being most of the time fatal. stroke only impairs movement of what part of your brain has been damaged and or the affected sides of your body. A stroke is either a clot or hemorrhage which causes ischemia ( area which dies due to lack of blood flow) in the brain. A heart attack is a (usually can be other causes) clogged coronary (blood vessel that supplies the heart muscle) artery which causes ischemia in the heart muscle. If there is a big enough area of ischemia...
