What is inferior ischemia, what are the symptoms and can it be cured?

I really need to know what are the symptoms of inferior ischemia and what can cause this kind of heart disease. Is it serious and can it be cured? Is this something that comes before heart attack? Please can someone answer.

    inferior ischemia means loss of blood supply to the inferior wall of the left ventricle. the leads on the ekg which would have detected this would be leads 2, 3 and AVF and the t wave will be inverted in these leads. so which arteries supply the inferior wall of the left ventricle ? they are the right coronary artery and the left circumflex coronary artery. so either one of these 2 or both of them is blocked. and yes it can be cured but you need to hurry up and go to the cardiologist before it becomes an infarction

    Inferior wall ischemia refers to a condition of the heart muscle. It usually occurs as a result of a blockage in one of the arteries supplying that portion of the heart muscle with oxygen. This is a serious condition, and can be indicative of what is commonly known as a "heart attack". It is often first diagnosed by EKG, but may also be diagnosed by echocardiogram. This finding should be taken seriously, if confirmed by a medical professional as an actual diagnosis. Often, patients are given copies of their EKG's, which are "read" by a computer. The interpretation on the EKG can be misleading, as it is often worded, "consider inferior wall ischemia". There are many intricacies involved in the interpretation of an EKG, and if your question stems from your having read such a document, you should find a reputable practitioner whom you trust, to interpret the results of your tests. She would use blood testing, physical examination and possibly EKG stress testing to give you a definitive answer. The best advice for lifestyle health is simple. Eat a healthy high fiber, low sodium, low saturated fat diet, exercise regularly, abstain from tobacco and excessive alcohol use and drink plenty of water. Get adequate daily rest and relaxation and abstain from risky sexual activity.
