It is important to be sure to avoid overfilling the stomach with food or liquid from the tube as this could lead to vomiting and possible aspiration. ...Read more

Can stent be used to open 100% blockage in an artery such as LAD during cardiac catheterization procedure . Cons and pros please. Thank.
Yes, if needed: Total blockage may occur suddenly - this is what causes a heart attack. Then the goal of the procedure is to get the blocked artery open asap (<90min) to save otherwise dying heart muscle. If the blockage is chronic, then it should be opened if the supplied muscle is alive and the patient's active lifestyle brings out symptoms. Stress scanning may be helpful to determine this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Having said that, hsg tends to be pretty good at picking up a hydrosalpinx. Hydrosalpinx will require further evaluation and possible treatment. ...Read more
