Consider seeing your cardiologist or a second opinion consult on healthtap. ...Read more

What are benefits or risks of doing angioplasty stent on chronic two total 100% occlusions.?

Acute or chronic?: If the occluded vessels are associated with a heart attack implying that they have just occurred (that in itself is odd because there is generally only 1 culprit vessel), there's benefit in trying to re-open it and stent it. If they are chronic, total occlusions, there is no benefit and the risks outweigh any minor potential benefit. ...Read more

I am 44 years old. I lost 13 kg weight with hard exercise in gym in 6 months. Can it be the reason of my recent CAD later angioplasty with stent.

Keep exercising: Moderate exercise doesn't cause coronary artery disease. It's possible that as you started exercising harder, you started having symptoms that led to the discovery of coronary artery disease. It's interesting, though, that long-distance endurance athletes, such as marathoners, might have more coronary disease, but that probably takes years of intense training and chronic stress on the body. ...Read more

Undergone angioplasty with insertion of stent on 15.05.2013. Can I go for hair transplantation?

In some cases, with unacceptable symptoms despite appropriate meds, an attempt at opening the vessels may be considered. Ask an interventional cardiologist with experience in doing ctos to review your cath. ...Read more
