61 yr old hypertensive male has total occlusion of right coronary andom. Stenting of om1 done. Ejection fraction is 45-50%. Is CABG indicated for rca?

61 yr old hypertensive male has total occlusion of right coronary andom. Stenting of om1 done. Ejection fraction is 45-50%. Is CABG indicated for rca?

Likely no: The damage that could have been done from the occluded rca has already happened, and the vessel can't get worse than totally occluded, so, provided that anginalsymptoms symptoms are controlled there is no need to do anything. Overtime, compensation typically occurs for an occluded vessel in the form of progressive collateral circulation. ...Read more

Is a coronary angiography the next test after echocardio for investigating basal septum hypokinesics. I have no symptoms and am worried as invasive?

Hypokinesis: An exercise echocardiogram could show whether the wall motion in the septum changes with exercise implying the muscle needs more blood flow. A nuclear perfusion study could show the rest and exercise blood flow to the area as well as other parts of the heart. A ct angiogram could show the vessels to the area. Best to discuss with your dr.
