Common Questions and Answers about Heart catheterization pci

heart

Avatar m tn The Holter came back normal. However the stress test revealed some ischemia to one lower part of my heart. The doctor suggested I have a catheterization,but since I do not have health insurance ( dropped by Humana ) he said we could wait and see how I do on the medication alone. And that I should look into trying to find some sort of medical insurance that would pay for it. I have had no chest pain, nor had any shortness of breath.

Avatar n tn on march 16 he had and attach he had an angiograme done adn this is the result CAD-3 VESSEL DISEASE 100% OCCLUSION OF LAD , PCI DONE
Avatar m tn I cycle 50 miles regularly, I dont smoke and there is no heart disease in my family. On the 19th July this year I had a heart attack. Due possibly to raised cholesterol (7.7) and hypertension. Angiagram showed 95% stenosis of Prox. la and mid lad and 80%stenosis of Circumflex. This was treated with PCI to Prox Lad /Di Bifurcation and MID lad. I am waiting for PCI to CX in 4 weeks time. Echo showed Mild AR, Trivial MR. LV non hypertrophied or dilated. GOOD SYSTOLIC function.
87284 tn?1362124879 I am 57 yr old male from India. I suffered ASMI in Jun-2003 and underwent CABG (LIMA to LAD and RIMA to D1). Since then I have been on strict medication (ACE inhibitors, Beta Blockers, Blood thinners, etc.) and diet. Last month after an acute coronary syndrome, I underwent coronary angiogram and was diagnosed with earlier patent grafts and 60-70% occlusion in the proximal RCA. What am I to do now, continue with medication or do I require a PCI? Pl. advise.
976897 tn?1379167602 In november of this year it was announced by the american heart foundation that people taking acid reflux medication post angioplasty had a higher chance of dying. Data clearly shows taking aspirin/plavix along with acid reflux medication is causing a higher death rate. The cause is unknown as yet. So, I would advise anyone due for angioplasty to discuss with their gp stopping any acid reflux meds currently being taken.
Avatar n tn Is that how the report is laid out? it's terrible. From what I can decipher, it is saying you had a stent already in the left main artery which has re-blocked and is 95% blocked. This is the section of artery which comes off the Aorta to feed your left anterior descending and left circumflex. The left circumflex is 40% blocked halfway down but this can be left. The Right coronary artery is 50% blocked halfway down and so this too can be left.
Avatar n tn Is it common procedure to do a heart catheterization on an individual who has an aortic annurism? and "Is it possible to combine two major surgeries and to repair the annurism and the heart damage at the same time? J.
Avatar n tn Finally, keep in mind, that most of these studies were done by experienced operators, so if no surgeon is willing to perform open heart surgery and no cardiologist is willing to perform PCI, then all you have left is medical therapy. Without LM disease and with no LV dysfunction, patient who are medically treated do as well as those that have either intervention. Usually, maximal medical therapy involves a high dose beta blocker, a high dose statin, ace, aspririn, plavix and a nitrate.

Avatar m tn There was better control of angina with PCI, but at 5 years 74% of the PCI patients and 72% of the medical patients were free of angina. These findings threaten the economic interests of the device manufacturers and the narrowly defined interests of some interventional cardiologists. Not surprisingly, efforts at spin control began even before the findings were presented at the late breaking trials session on Tuesday morning.

Avatar n tn i had a heart catheterization done a week ago.. i have formed a knot in the area of the catheter and now it throbs at site around to my lower back.. is this normal ?
Avatar f tn She was at the hospital for 4 days the catheterization went fine she had no blockage in her heart arteries wich was good!! But..About 3days after being released from the hospital she started to have an allergic reaction to the dye! Which the dr.s thought was strange so they ran some blood tests etc. They gave her meds for it and sent her on her way. Now I have a question it’s probably common idk? After a week 1/2 of being out of hospital she still feels dizzy!

I'm a 53 year old male who had MIDCAB on the LAD for a 100% blockage in Mar of 96. At that time my RCA was 50-60% blocked. In Jan 97 my RCA was found to be 100% blocked, a angioplasty was done.

Avatar m tn He was rush to emergency department and a stent procedure was done. According to the doctor, he had at least 4 episode of heart attack in the middle of the night, his heart is only functioning at 20% now. He is now schedule for a second stent in one month times. His primary diagnosis is “ST elevation myocardial infraction, Anterior STEMI” and secondary diagnosis is “Two coronary vessel diseases, s/p PCI to LAD”. The proposed treatment is “For Staged PCI to RCA +/- mid-distal LAD”.
Avatar n tn Treatment for a totally occluded LAD depends largely on the chronicity of the occlusion (recent versus remote), symptoms, current medication regimen, and whether there is evidence of ischemia to that area of the heart that is supplied by the LAD (usually done by stress testing). Unfortunately, it is difficult to say what would be your best treatment option without knowing your complete medical history, a physical exmaination, and being able to see your actual coronary angiogram.
