Post PTCA Heart Failure
My father had MI in 2010 post which he got 3 stents. The ECHO done in Feb 2021 showed LVEF 25-30% with other parameters normal. He has DM-2, Hypertension, CKD Stage 3, Creatnine 1.7 mg/dl. He was put on carvedilol 3.125, nitrocontin 2.6, torsemide 10, ecospirin av gold 20, Gliclzide 60 MR OD. According to today's ECHO, the LVEF has not improved. The report is same as previous. The cardiologist has suggested Sacutan-50 BD to added in the existing medicines. His potassium level is 4.8. Considering his CKD issue, should we give him Sacutan-50. Please suggest.
