Question: I am inoperable, I have a LF = 20% - 25%, which was caused by Viral Cardiomyopathy. I also have "severe" bilateral peripheral vascular disease. I did have a graft placed from my abdominal aorta to my rt. femoral artery, on 6/2012. This was done by Dr. Russel Kraeger, Thoracic / Vascular Surgeon. My question is this, is there now or will there be in the near future a medication that may clear this clot, or a surgery with some type of new procedure and graft that can be used. Regretfully, and this was my fault, when asked if I as having any problems on the left side of my leg. I said "no". Because I did not have viral cardiomyopathy at that time, he would of grafted the Lt. side also. Who is the best surgeon in the country for Peripheral Vascular Disease?
Thank you so much for your time and consideration
