2nd opinion: Ask or a dvd or cd rom of cath films and get a second opinion from another doc, preferably board certified in interventional cardiology, fellow scai. If that doc is at a high volume respected center, even better. Only by an expert viewing your actual cath pictures can various options be explored.
