CAG reports is not available, the papers mention the procedure not the res

Detailed Answer:
Hello ,
Thank you for writing back . I went through all the reports you have sent .
I would help you review them all .
1) There is a report called carotid doppler . Here they see the condition of arteries to the brain . It's important to have it done before bypass as there are higher chances of stroke if they are diseased during the bypass procedure. For your father it's withen NORMAL limits and can be controlled with medicine.
2) The status of saphaneous veins , which are re going to used in bypass , it's normal too.
3) Echo cardiography report .
Generally this gives us an fair idea for LV aneurysm, however there is a no mention about the same in the reports. It has been reported as normal LV cavity with good systolic function
Rider * they have mentioned that the views were not clear and so they cannot comment 100 %
4) The rest are angiography notes , however they have mentioned how the procedure was done and not what are the results.
I presume there will be another paper for CAG mentioning the finding which may have formed the basis of taking the decision for bypass surgery.
However preliminary finding till now of all papers sent doesn't mention LV aneurysm either in perfusion MRI or Echo.
Hoping I could help .
Regards Dr Priyank Mody

I m an 18 year old, 300 lbs. female and last friday I started having heart palpitations that lasted until this past thursday. They were constant but when I went to the doctor he said everything sounded normal. My blood pressure was 130/92 but he didn t mention anything about it. He said that it could be caffine or mitral valve prolapse. He told me I could see the heart doctor for an ultrasound to make sure everything looks normal. They stopped thursday and it s saturday now. I am having a little bit of discomfort in my back and I seem to be breathing fine except when go to bed and when I just wake up. I ve cut caffine out of my diet since the palps started. I still feel a bit weird but that could just be because I made myself worry over everything and my dad just had triple bypass surgery at 47 on his heart. Should I still see the heart doctor just to be safe or was it just anxiety or too much caffine?
