Common Questions and Answers about Angiography for coronary artery disease

angiogram

Avatar n tn He undergone Angiography a couple of days ago and the report said that the Right Coronary Artery is 100% blocked. According to the Cardiologist, who performed Angiography, the blockage is old. But, my father has no pain (Angina), no fatigue and other common symptoms of Coronary Artery Disease. He’s perfectly alright. Also, his Left coronary artery is completely Normal and another Non-Dominant artery is 30% blocked, but, other parallel branches are normal.

Avatar f tn Sometimes, these tests show abnormalities in people who do not have coronary artery disease (a false-positive result), and sometimes tests do not show any abnormalities in people who have the disease (a false-negative result). In people without symptoms, especially younger people, the likelihood of coronary artery disease is low, despite an abnormal test result. In such cases, a positive result is usually more likely to be false than true. The gold standard is coronary angiography.
Avatar f tn we wz advsd for angiography in the angio der is 90 %blkge in prxml left anterior dscdng artery..50% mid and distal lad stenosis..95% distal lft crcmflex artery discrete stenosis90%prxml OM1 discrte stenosis 40 %prxml RCA stenosis...90% at two brnches of circumflex while one of brnch of crcmflex is normal. In the RCA der is non sgnfcnt blkges as per reprt.he is RCA dominant. We r advsd with CABG...plz guide me whthr we shld go fr CABG or nt...he wz smoker in past...
Avatar f tn Your father does have at least one major risk factor for coronary artery disease, since he has diabetes. It is very possible that can have severe blockages and not ever had symptoms or a heart attack. In fact, diabetic patients often have no symptoms of angina, or unusual angina symptoms.
Avatar m tn Mildly reversible defect on a nuclear stress test has a very good prognosis, but it may be suggestive of coronary artery disease. It may not need further invasive procedures. For this preventive pharmacotherapy is indicated. Aspirin and statins have been shown to reduce the risk of heart attacks in people with coronary artery disease, even if asymptomatic. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn •Intermediate to high-risk profiles for coronary artery disease, but who do not have typical symptoms (especially chest pain, shortness of breath, or fatigue during heavy physical activity.) •Unusual symptoms for coronary artery disease (such as chest pain unrelated to physical exertion), but low to intermediate risk profiles for coronary artery disease. •Unclear or inconclusive stress-test (treadmill test) results.
Avatar n tn - Co-dominant diffusely diseased vessel with moderate proximal disease followed by severe disease in mid and distal parts LV Angiogram: - Mild to moderate LV systolic dysfunction - Ejection Fraction=40% Conclusion: - Severe three vessel disease - Mild to moderate LV systolic dysfuction Management Decision: - Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery Any help will be appreciated. Thankyou.
Avatar f tn Transmyocardial laser revascularization (TMLR) is a new therapy for the treatment of patients with coronary artery disease refractory to standard revascularization techniques and maximal medical treatment. It creates transmural channels into the ischemic portions of the left ventricle that enable blood to perfuse them.
Avatar m tn The doctors have prescribed some tablets for the disease and they said that the disease can be cured by tablets itself. is that so.. is it is necessary to a surgery. could you please clarify this.....
Avatar m tn CT angiograms will expose you to a small amount of radiation. If you have known coronary artery disease, a traditional coronary angiogram may be a better option, since you can also receive treatment for your artery blockages during a traditional coronary angiogram. Since you are symptomatic but do not have known coronary artery disease, you can go ahead with the CT scan, based on these findings further therapy can be planned. Regards.

Avatar n tn Many researchers think that a drop in estrogen levels in women at menopause combined with traditional risk factors for heart disease causes coronary MVD. Therefore, coronary MVD is being studied as a possible cause of heart disease in women. This is because standard tests for CAD don't always detect coronary MVD in women.As a result, women are often thought to be at low risk for heart disease.
Avatar f tn Coronary Angiogram Report by mehdiabbasbukhari1974, Jan 23, 2014 I am a male 40 years from Sialkot Pakistan. I had a heart attack almost 2 months ago on 9th of November 2013. I was given SK injection. I went for Angiography on 21st November 2013 who's report is mentioned Below.
