Arteriography showed 100% blocked Circumflex..had bypass on LAD 16 yrs ago..I'm 83.....prognosis?...worried
Need more info....: Not all 100% blocked lesions need to be fixed. Depends on symptoms, if any, and more importantly can they be attributed to that lesion.

Unlikely.....but: Tubal ligation (tubes tied) and 41 years old makes it very unlikely you will get pregnant. But nothing is 100% or 0% in the world of medicine. There is a very small possibility that an ovary could be fertilized someplace in the tubal duct, less likely in the uterus, presuming that the surgeon did an adequate ligation. ...Read more

Endometriosis: Endometriomas can be treated by laparoscopic surgery to decrease the size of the cyst, or to remove the cyst. The goal would be to treat the endometriosis and conserve the ovaries. Medical treatment(zoladex, lupron, (leuprolide) or progestins) can also be used to suppress your normal hormone cycle and allow the cyst to decrease in size. This may take longer and may not be effective with larger endometriomas. ...Read more
