Hi,

Thanks for the detailed description.

May be except for not being put on Beta-blocker (May due to wheeze or something), your medicines look fine. As far as re-vascularization is concerned, it depends on your overall health and activity level. If you are in good health other than cardiac problem and active life style, then best therapy would be that you should undergo coronary artery bypass surgery with a good surgeon and a good institute, as at your age risk of complication is higher.
If the activity level is low, or there are other co morbidity, then you can be only on medicines and consider partial re-vascularization with angioplasty, if symptomatic.

Hope I have been able to answer your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you.

Regards

Hi,

Thanks for the follow up.

You have three vessel blockages. If all the three opened, we call it complete revascularization. That means all blocks are removed or treated.
If we have to do angioplasty looking at angiographic, description it may not be possible to open right coronary artery. Opening only LAD and LCx is called partial revascularization.

I had a heat attack 6 months ago. My tropnin level is 26.8 microns/L is this high. I have an infarct as well. I also have COPD. After angioplasty my kidneys worsened and my gfr went from 58 to 48. Which is quite serious, as I had a reaction to dye. Is the damage permanent to kidneys and how large is infarct if troponin level is 26.8 microns/L.
