Septal hypokinesis refers to the interventricular septun (the partition between the right and left ventricles) which does not contract normally.  This can be due to many things --weakness of the heart muscle, blockage in the coronary arteries , abnormal  electrical conduction in the  heart, certain valve problems--basically there are many causes.  It generally means however,  there is a problem with the heart.
