Heart walls

What are the basal anterolater and basal inferoseptal and distal inferoseptal walls?  I have ischemia there and I'm not clear as to what these names mean?

The words in question describe a location.  Septal wall is the wall that separates the right and left chambers.  Basal anterolater in the context of the septum is probably the right atrium (upper right chamber).  Ischemia means lack of blood supply.  

Of significance with the right atrium and septum are pathways for electrical impulses to provide a normal rhythm for a beating heart..
