Stress Test Results

Had a stress test at local VA and just got results online, not sure what the results mean.

Fixed defect noted in the posterolateral wall involving approx. 10 to 15% of myocardium consistent w/old myocardial infarction.
Subtle hypokinesis noted corresponding to fixed defect.  Tract gated left ventricular ejection fraction is 59%.

Thank You

What the report seems to indicate is that you've had a heart attack at some time in the past and a portion of the heart muscle is necrotic. Your EF is slightly lower than you would expect, but not bad at all considering the cause. Your heart muscle is a bit sluggish in the area associated with the 'attack'.
Perhaps they will want to perform an angiogram to ensure there are no other blockages ready to damage more heart muscle?
