Severe Perfusion Defect Within Anterior Wall

I had a NUC Cardiac Spec/Multi Study done.   The result was a severe perfusion defect seen within the anterior wall extending into the anterior apical wall involving 15% of the LV myocardium without reversibility.  There was no stress-induced ischemia.  Post-stress LVEF was normal at 58%.  Please explain what this all means!

Hi there!

The report describes a previous episode of myocardial infarction (heart attack) that has resulted in dead heart tissue (myocardium) secondary to low perfusion (reduced blood supply) which is unlikely to respond to re-perfusion; while the pumping action of the left ventricle is considered within normal limits.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
