stress test report, what does it mean

no clinical or electrocardiographic evidence of coronary ischemia
abnormal left ventricular perfusion scan with a fixed distal anteroapical defect with minimal reversability suggestive of area of infarct with minimal peri infarct ischemia
preserved systolic function of left ventricle with distal anteroapical wall motion abnormality;;this was suppose to have been a thallium test but was also gait..bad knees prevented getting rate passed desired target. awaiting approval of a previously denied test procedure to follow up--cta scan..what does this interpret to?

It means that there is a very small area of a previuos heart attack in your heart in the anteroapical portion (tip of the heart) with some small amount of low blood flow to the area that surrounds the dead muscle.  Some elect to have an angiogram to further assess this.  However, this is typically treated with medications and should not require any further studies unless you have severe symptoms such as exertional chest pain or shortness of breath.
