I am 45 years old. I had a coronary angiogram, and the first diagnosis showed proximal mild to moderate disease. LCX is a nondominant vessel, proximal mildly ecstatic, and it gives rise to three branches, only 3 OM has moderate proximal stenosis, OM 3 and OM 1 are normal. Please advice what kind of medicine in need and do you have an idea for a better solution.

Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Thanks for your detailed reply with more information about your heart workup. I have reviewed your case thoroughly and would like to reply to your primary questions and concerns. The best option at this point is lifestyle change and medications that have already been prescribed to you. Aspirin and Bisoprolol (Concor) is essential to be taken on time regularly.
They are already doing great with your heart. Please do not take any other medications by yourself as they can have an interaction with your current medications. And can either raise or lower the effect of your vital medications. The best possible solution at this time has already been practiced, and I would recommend consulting your cardiologist right away if there is an unusual change in your heart's behavior (any symptoms of heart attack). Keep a check on your blood pressure, and you would be in the clear.
Lifestyle change includes diet and activity. The vital part is the complete cessation of active as well as passive smoking. It is great to know you do not consume alcohol. Your family history already puts you on risk for blood vessel and heart diseases. You need to be extra cautious in that perspective. There is no need to worry about as everything seems under control. Keep a follow-up with your Cardiologist, and if you need any assistance from me, I would always be a message away from you.
The interpretation of your coronary angiogram, of this the details give us some idea about the condition of the heart vessels. The blood vessels usually run along their entirety in a horizontal pattern when seen on an angiogram. We can see in your case, there is mild ectasia or bulging seen in vessels named like LMCA, LAD. Another finding seen on angiogram was about bridging of the LAD in its middle segment, meaning that this artery is narrowed by passing through the heart muscle fibers (usually the vessel runs above the muscles of the heart so that they are not compressed through heart muscles' contractions). The first diagonal vessel is showing mild to moderate narrowing or disease.Another vessel OM-2 is showing some narrowing too. OM-1 and 3 look normal. Final impression on these findings comes up as narrowing of the heart vessels due to heart vessel disease. Your cardiologists in the hospital have adequately addressed chest pain and other issues, and I am glad you were discharged eventless after the treatment. Heart valves are normal, and there is no big issue going on with the heart chambers. The heart is of normal size and is functioning well with nice blood being pumped out. I hope this assists. Please feel free to ask me for more anytime. I would be more than happy to assist you as soon as possible.
