How Can The Heart Muscles Damage Be Assessed?

sir, I am 36 years old male, recently had chest pain and was detected to have acute coronary syndrome with troponin T positive 0.98 ng, 100% stenosis in the left circumflex artery and got a PTCA with stenting to that artery. Now that i have passed 25 days after PTCA, I am still worried about having a second heart attack or some clot or stenosis in other places or even sudden cardiac arrest.. Please advise me what I should do? how to find out what percentage of my heart muscles got damaged

Hello,

If there was no blockage in other arteries during coronary angiography, then the risk is very low to get another heart attack or cardiac arrest if you take your medications and follow a healthy lifestyle. And the percentage of the damaged heart muscle may be assessed either by Echocardiography or cardiac MRI test.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Lilit Baghdasaryan, Cardiologist
