my mother is 60 yr old. she has positive TMT test. Doc said she ran for 6.30 min and there were ST changes in ECG. her lipid profile ,sr criatinine, uric acid etc is normal. her Hb% is 10 and has calcium deficiency. She is complaining of breathlessness while walking,climbing upstairs. she feels febrile even after a little exertion. Doc suggested Angiography . Should we go for it? Whats does TMT suggesting? Is it strongly positive?
positive TMT called when significant ST - T changes appears in ECG during stress - it denotes on walking or any exertion heart muscles do not get sufficient blood - suggestive of coronary arteries blockage
so you should proceed to coronary angiogram
