This patient is complaining of prolonged chest pain for three weeks now. Took medication for gastric issue and the pain has not subsided. I have attached the angiogram report. ECG performed several times and nothing abnormal in it. The angiogram report showed mid LAD 12 mm length and segment eccentric calcification. Soft plaque in LAD causing 50% stenosis. What is the recommended course of action?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I appreciate your concerns and can well realize the sensitivity of the issues.
There is considerable calcification of LAD (left anterior descending artery). If it reaches up to 75% that is quite possible in the near future, then complications and consequences can be severe.
In case of single artery involvement in coronary artery disease (CAD) it is best to have an angioplasty of the vessel with stent placement.
