If you have an attack meaning the symptoms of chest pain,arm pain, vomiting and go to the ER, and the diagnosis is artery obstruction did you have a heart attack? Diagnosis is: obstruction of the arteries. An incident that had symptoms of a heart attack, so is obstruction of the arteries with incident a heart attack? I meant to say Symptomatic not with incident that is what I meant Symptomatic I also want to add that 3 out of 4 doctors said I had a heart attack. The fourth doctor said,nope it was obstruction of the arteries. The doctor that said it wasn t a heart attack also said there was no damage to the heart muscle. ER then transported to heart and trauma center same day then discharged next day from trauma center. I had one stent placement and have to return for another, from what I understand one more.

My husband had a triple bypass 10 years ago. Now, a heart cath shows that one of those arteries has failed to some degree. Do you recommend trying to place a stent in his original blocked artery? He is 72 years old and has not had a heart attack. We have detected blockage at a point where it was repaired before damage to the heart.
