Can you post the procedure report in entirety?  There are people on this forum that can probably respond, but will need the comments in the report in the context it was written.

>>>Just based on what you have posted: For some insight, the septum is the wall that separates the left and right ventricles (pumping chambers).  Hypokinetic indicates there is wall movement impairment located midway on the septum wall.  That condition is usually the result of lack of blood supply and that is what ischemia means. You could have had  a minor heart attack and/or there can be some blockage of the heart vessels that feed into the suptum.

No pericardial effusion indicates the area between the heart muscle and pericardial sac (outer lining) is normal and free of any leakage..
