Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would explain that if you have clinical symptomatology suggestive of coronary artery disease (chest pain, shortness of breath, etc.), a new revascularization procedure may be necessary.

In this regard a percutaneous coronary vascularisation with eventual coronary stent implantation has been the most frequently applied strategy, in patients who have previously performed bypass surgery.

If the above procedure is technically impossible, another treatment option would be a re-do bypass.

The third treatment option, especially if you do not have ongoing clinical symptomatology, would be to continue medical treatment for coronary artery disease.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above issues.

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
