What is the cpt code for a percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasy of the left anterior descending coronary artery?
Ecg suggests mid and apical septum and anteroseptum hypokinesia.
What are the best test to identify where the artery blockage might be?
CAD: What you are calling ECG has to be echocardiogram, ECG doesn't read hypokinesis. The artery involved would have to be the left anterior descending and some septal perforators from the location. Depending on clinical situation, you might need a coronary angiogram if interventional therapy is appropriate. You should be already on CAD treatment. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

CT angio shows moderate to severe stenosis of mid LAD artery. What would be the normal course of action?

MRI or MRA? CTA angi: The question's somewhat vague. Are you asking about 3-D vs. 2-D MRI? Or MRI vs. MRA (Magnetic resonance angiogram)? MRI can show changes in tissue that are effects of arterial blockage. The actual arteries themselves are seen by MRA. The size of artery blocked determines whether or not it can be seen. More proximal = larger artery = easier to see blockage. The heart moves, & MRI pics often blurry. ...Read more
