Apical left ventricular thinning
Hi. I was recently discharged from the hospital with the following diagnosis:
Apical left ventricular thinning and low attenuation suggest possible ischemic insult.
Can you please explain this in layman's terms? I am a little frightened because I don't know what this means. I still have chest pains and I do have Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation, Lupus (SLE and Discoid), Fibromyalgia and Sjogrens Disease.
Please help.

Thank you.

I did a very quick look on the web, as I have never read your diagnosis before. While I find it strange that you would be told such without an explanation, the little reading I did suggests the possibility that the condition is not problematic, can exist in normal hearts.

Maybe someone who has specific experience will "chip in".
