Nuclear scan: It is possible for patients with different body shapes and sizes to affect their nuclear scans. For example women with large breasts and men with a large belly can influence the scan. It is best to follow with your cardiologist to review the results for you.

Coronary artery dz: When we say heart blockage we generally are referring the coronary arteries which supply blood to the muscle of the heart.

Can you tell if there's s blockage in the heart with a EKG?

Can you tell if there's s blockage in the heart with a EKG?

Possibly.: An ECG may be entirely normal, even with severe blockages. An ECG can suggest blockage with changes that occur when the heart is actively receiving reduced blood flow, and will often show damage that has already occurred. Observing the ECG during exercise (stress test), particularly if coupled with an image such as echo or nuclear scan, will be more helpful in screening for blockages.

Will the clearing of an 80% blockage of the LAD help a a 20% efficient heart?

Sometimes: Heart function sometimes improves after opening a blocked artery but not always, especially if you have had a heart attack in the past. Symptoms of heart failure or angina, such as shortness of breath and chest pain are more important than the number attached to your heart function. Best wishes.

Is it possible that the blackout of vision for a few seconds is due to heart blockage?

Is it possible that the blackout of vision for a few seconds is due to heart blockage?

Not likely.: Possible but not likely. Transient obscuration of vision is more likely due to a transient drop in blood pressure which could be from an electrical problem in the heart but not generally an intrinsic plumbing or blood flow problem unless of course the symptoms are strictly exertional. Other concerns are problems with vascular tone including side effects of meds and dehydration

What are the defferences bet. Heart failure and heart blockage?

What are the defferences bet. Heart failure and heart blockage?

Very different...: I'm assuming by "heart blockage" you're referring to coronary artery blockage, also know as coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) refers to the development of fatty deposits in the wall of the arteries in the heart muscle, ultimately leading to decrease heart function. If the function is impaired enough, it is called heart failure (hf). In short, CAD may lead to hf.

Early 50's. I have call it 30% blockage in my LADA...LBBB. Slight output issue;Meds for HBP. What can I do to lessen chance of more Heart Afflictions?

Early 50's. I have call it 30% blockage in my LADA...LBBB. Slight output issue;Meds for HBP. What can I do to lessen chance of more Heart Afflictions?

Optimization medicin: Plus lifestyle changes (walk even daily 30 mins, eat as much of a MEditerranean diet as possible, and de-stress = meditate). Given your LBBB, some plaque buildup and possible decrement in LVEF, make sure you are on the "holy water"= asprin 81mg, betablocker, preferably Coreg, (carvedilol) ACE inhib, statin. This combo + heart healthy lefstyle ought to stave off heart disease and hopefully reverse low output
