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.
