Be Thankful for the technology of Stints. Smiles and encouragement will be some good medicine for your dad.

Stop thinking about the Heart Attack and Start focusing on the Changes you can help your dad with to live a long prosperous life. My faith in God and Prayer helped me through my dilemma, and I know it will help all of you. Prayers are on there way as you read this note. God Bless you and your Dad.

My father died of a sudden heart attack in his home. I cannot get over this regret I am feeling ? I should have gotten him LIFE ALERT and he could have pressed it and been saved. He was 76 years old. He had several health problems including diabetes (controlled), hypertension (controlled), stage 4 kidney disease, and atrial fibrillation (controlled by digoxin). He had two strokes in the past, the last being 12 years ago, which paralyzed his left side, but he got some of it back and could walk with a cane. He also had a mild heart attack about 15 years ago, which was treated with balloon angioplasty. I wanted him to enjoy his final years, so I let him drive, and do his own things, etc. I am VERY REGRETFUL that I did not get him LIFE ALERT (or another similar product). I realize that sometimes when people have a heart attack, they do not know it, and cannot press the button, but I am still very regretful over this. I don t know how I am ever going to forgive myself for this. please help! Thank you everybody, you are very helpful. God Bless You all. Just for the record, he was found on the kitchen floor in the sitting position (on his bottom), with his knees bent, feet flat on the floor, and his head slumped down to his chest. One arm had an abrasion on it on the upper side of the forearm , as if he may have nicked it against the table or chair that he was near.

Hi, I recently had a scheduled angioplasy and two stents implanted. I had a followup visit this week with the cardiologist. He informed me that he implanted an expired stent. This is a Taxis drug illuding stent. Is this against FDA regulations to implant an expired stent in a patient? I believe there must be strict FDA regulations in doing so? Tom J
