Can anyone explain the following in very simple layman’s language:
At least moderately impaired LV systolic function. Apical septum, apical cap &apical lateral walls appeared akinetic & aneurysmal. Lateral inferior & anterior walls appear hypokinetic.
Also, does the term “at least moderately impaired” mean that there’s the possibly that LV systolic function could be more than moderately impaired.
What exactly is the systolic function, what does it do/not do.
Thanks for your help
