My father is 57 years old. He had MI in 2010 and underwent angioplasty. At that time his LVEF was 30%, now it has come down to 25%. I am concerned as to why this happened and is there a way to increase or prevent it from further deteriorating.
He has on the medication of ACE inhibitors, Beta blocker, statins and ecosprin (I can share the prescription details if helps).
He has been advised by his cardiologist to get ICD done.
We would like to get a second opinion on what should be our next steps and should we go ahead with ICD?
Are there any risks associated with ICD?
The ICD device that cardiologist has recommended is MRI compatible. Would there be any life style modification required post that?
Would there be restriction in crossing metal detectors?
My mother is leading a normal life and has no symptoms related to heart disease . When on a yearly health check up TMT test showed positive hence we got angiogram done and has LMCA distal segment has 60% stenosis LAD type 3 vessel and proximal LAD has 70% stenosis ,D1(2.25mm)vessel and Ostial segment has 90% stenosis . LCX non dominant and proximal segment has 70% stenosis . RCA dominant and mid segment has 20% stenosis ..... is bypass surgery a must or any other alternative to it ? Thank you in advance
I want to know whom to consult for blood pressure and what are the types of tests are there to identify which type of blood pressure.
I mean; is it high blood pressure or low blood pressure.
Some one telling that consult general physician and some one telling that consult cardiologist;who is correct.
Plz confirm;what should I do and whom to consult.
One arteries is blocked due to calcification.so balloon angioplasty is not working on this. I want rotablation based diamond drill angioplasty.
