Cardiologist 's  Response
Welcome to HCM ,
from angiography report as you have LCX total occlusion and OM1 90 % with thrombus , i advice you to undergo angioplasty early , if you delay then it might possible to have heart attack in OM territory area as you have thrombus in OM and your LCX lesion will also get calcification if you delay stenting ,
consult your cardiologist and plan stenting early as per his advice ,
take your medicine regularly ,
take care
