Now the OTHER two heart attacks/blockages...depends on where they are:
[QUOTE]SPECT sestamibi revealed inferior and inferolateral M.I.[/QUOTE]

Inferolaterolateral also means the back bottom of heart and Q-wave discrepancies. It MAY be just from the ONE heart attack becasue inferior and inferolateral aren't really very different terminologies.

[QUOTE]Ejection fraction going 55>>51>>45 [/QUOTE]means the heart attack and noncontributing right heart is having an effect on pumping ability. This is taking it's toll on the heart by making the left ventricle work harder

and thus grow larger.
