You have to share the whole Angiography report so that I can help you in a better way.

The way I understood is that he has minor blockages with a patent stent. If that is so he will only need medicine and nothing else. He should be at least on Aspirin and Rosuvastatin.

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

Hello, My mother in law underwent coronary & renal angiography , PTCA with Drug coated stenting to LAD, LCx & RCA about a year back. She was fine after the treatment with regular medications . Recently she developed slight angina. Her stress echo was positive. Considering her history we got coronary angiography done which revealed significant triple vessel disease, patent stent in LAD, LCx & OM1 & 80% lesion in proximal RCA for which she was advised PTCA with stenting to RCA. What do you suggest? Thanks, AAAA

I am about to undergo an angiogram and want to know the best decision with respect to medication or angiography. I ve read that there are certain risks to this procedure and am wondering on a decision as to whether to just rely on medication or not. I have had problems with side effects in taking medication (Crestor, Lipitor) but with the help of Coenzyme Q10 am tolerating the Crestor (10Mg) more effectively. I have had very high cholesteral 14 down to 11 and now the total count (good and bad) is 9 - still high but on its way down. i am 62 years old female and am having anxiety over the balloon, stent treatment - ie invasion versus just going along with medication. Can you give me some input on my thoughts. Thank you
