Hypokinesia refers to decreased bodily movement. One of the two categories of movement disorders, hypokinesia is characterized by a partial or complete loss of muscle movement due to a disruption in the basal ganglia. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease. It is one of the leading cause of death in India & US in both men and women. CAD happens when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle become hardened and narrowed Ischemia or ischaemia is a restriction in blood supply to tissues, causing a shortage of oxygen that is needed for cellular metabolism (to keep tissue alive). Ischemia is generally caused by problems with blood vessels, with resultant damage to or dysfunction of tissue. They are serious conditions but are treatable.
Coronary angiography should be done and treatment plan depends on it.
