No idea: There is NO way we can tell what may be affecting your cardiac function, and have no clue as to status of LAD, a critically important artery. Appears doctors are already involved, so, have a comprehensive conference with those who know you best. A coronary angiogram may be important.
Dr. Ramalingaier Parameswaran

Likelihood of coronary disease is low unless there are suggestive symptoms, a lipid abnormality other than high LDL etc. Not sure why LAD disease is specifically mentioned.
