Avatar n tn Those who received stents did not show a reduction the risk of heart attack, hospitalization for acute coronary syndrome, or the composite of heart attack, stroke and death, but they did have a greater reduction in chest pain than those who received medical therapy alone".
Avatar m tn Each time he has the stents added, 3-4 days later he has a heart attack. Could his body be rejecting the stents and is bypass an option? Also, he is in 3rd stage kidney failure, are the stent procedures further damaging his kidneys?

Avatar f tn My father had a heart attack 23 yrs ago followed by a quadruple bypass. He has taken great care of his health with exercise and healthy vegetarian diet. He had a stress test done in 1994 that was positive. He is 73 now. He had a dobutamin stress echocardiogram and the Dr interpretaion is as follows: Patient had angina at peak stress; Max heart rate 126 BPM and B. P. 150/70 mm Hg noted at peak stress of 40 mcg/kg/min dobutamine + 0.3mg Atropin.
Avatar m tn But there is something unclear and that is having a heart attack and no heart muscle damage and an EF 60%. A heart attack by definition is heart muscle damage, and heart muscle damage reduces the EF. Husband's EF is normal and no heart cell damage. I wasn't as lucky, I had heart cells as it turns out to be only stunned and brought back function normally with a better blood supply and my EF was below 29%. .
Avatar m tn I had a heart attack in 2009 and was life flighted to the Tx Medical Ctr. I was evaluated by an excellent group of doctors, debating intervention or invasion. The surgeons performed CABG X 3. Quick recovery, but never experienced lack of chest pain when exercising, which was noted for 2 years in my follow ups. Just had a cardiac cath and 3 stents were placed. Original CABG: 1 non performing, 1 compromised, 1 ok.
Avatar n tn s hard to say without any further info, but if you did have a heart attack in the past, then the likelihood of recovery in very low to none. If there was no heart attack and that area is in a "sleeping mode" then having a catheterization and potential stenting vs. bypass surgery could definitely help. Either way, it is important however that you get good treatment to prevent any further decrement.

Avatar n tn I had heart attack in Oct 2008, since then my leg kills after walking only a short distance, what can it be? I had a vascular study done and there was no pressure what is that? In the am I take aspirin, lisinipril, calcium, metropolol, zantac,methimizole, and plavix could any of these be causing it? In the PM I take calcium, metropolol, zantac, and lipitor(40) could this be doing it?
Avatar n tn Both of my parents underwent 4 way bypass surgery at 73 years of age, mother after a heart attack and father after he failed a stres test. Both are alive and never better 8 years later. their doctor told them it added 15 - 20 years to their lives. Neither of them are diabetic though so I don't know how that changes things. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn I have had cardiac bypass sugery 9 months ago . I have been having chest pains a couple of days really bad. I'm mot sure if I have had a heart attack. Could you please advise me on what I should do.
Avatar f tn fariha u have alot learning abt heart .me also suffered fem heart attack and have blockage of main artery and also blessed by ALLAH having natural bypass butt doctors still recommend me bypass surgery.i m not willing for this.is it possible by medicines??
Avatar m tn However, I was not so lucky with the bypass option later in the same year to treat a different vessel. My triple bypass only lasted three months so it failed basically before I had even healed up from surgery. My LAD was opened with stents last year, but I am not sure why cardiologists feel that bypass surgery is more beneficial with the LAD. You should also remember that the choice at the end of the day is yours and if you feel unhappy with the decisions made, seek further opinions.
