Hello fellow heart disease and family members, I am new to this site but unfortunately not new to heart disease. Ok, specifics..im 47 and had my first of 3 heart attacks in 2008. The cardio cath report says i am at 15% e.f and the ECG & Stress test puts me at 25%. I have a boston scientific pm and defib. the following I'm gonna quote from the stress test impression and findings. .
"THERE IS A LARGE AND SEVERE FIXED ANTERIOR, APICAL, INFERIOR, SEPTAL PERFUSION DEFECT CONSISTENT WITH MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION IN THE LAD VASCULAR TERRITORY" . and then for the findings it says the above but with this also, "NO EVIDENCE FOR REVERSIBLE PERFUSION ABNORMALITIES AND EJECTION FRACTION IS 25%" so that is from the ECG and 3 hr stress test etc..
now for the good part, less than a week later i went to hospital for the angio cath and to say the least, the surgeon was horrible and this was his OVERALL IMPRESSION (NOT THE SPECIFIC FINDINGS) but if the specific findings will help i can add it so here is what he says. "SEVERE DISEASE OF THE NATIVE LEFT ANTERIOR DESCENDING WITH AN OCCLUDED LEFT ANTERIOR DESCENDING STENT WITH COLLATERERALS FROM RIGHT SIDE WITH DIFFUSE DISEASE OF THE DISTAL LAD WITH SEVERE DISEASE OF THE OBTUSE MARGINAL ARTERY WITH AN FFR OF .97 DILATED VENTRICLE WITH LOW EJECTION FRACTION."
i guess I'm going to post another question separate from this regarding the mental issues and concerns that have been going on, but if anyone can explain to me the reports id appreciate it. TY
