I had a chemical stress test and the doctor said it was a little abnormal and wanted me to go into the hospital the next day for a heart cath. All he would tell me was that I had a slight abnormal report. After 3 weeks I get a partical report that says everything is normal except the resting images showed a subtle septal wall defect which partially reversed on resting images. His conclusion Mild reversibility noted in the septal wall. Clinical correlational required. Note: I have severe emphysema. My doctor would not explain anything.
In plain ENglish, what does this mean and is it a serious thing?
