Q: 

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...


Q: 

what is an infarction?

A: To elaborate on alabriola, an infarction is indeed the death of tissue due to the blood supply being cut off, however the causes of such a cut off can vary and are not always indicated in the name of the diagnosis. The most commonly known infarctions are the myocardial infarction, or heart attack, and the cerebral infarction, or stroke. A heart attack is what is known as a "white infarction" as the blood flow is cut off and the muscle turns white as a result of the blood circulating out without circulating back in. These types of infarctions are often caused by platelets or plaque build up...

Q: 

what is the Most Common myocardial Infarction Pathophysiology?

A: myocardial infarction is the formal medical term for a heart attack. The term specifically refers to an infarction of the myocardium, which simply translates to damage of the inner muscular wall of the heart. This is significant since the myocardium is responsible for pumping away from the heart. Should this function become impaired, ischemia will occur, a condition characterized by a lack of sufficient blood and oxygen supply to the heart. While there are numerous risk factors that can contribute to a diseased heart, the most common myocardial...
