Just for a bit of background FYI info, there are three major coronary arteries in a person's heart, two of which arise from a common stem referred to as the, 'Left Main Coronary Artery.' The left main coronary artery supplies the left side of the person's heart, with the left anterior descending (LAD) branch supplying both the left-lateral and back side of their heart. The Right Coronary Artery (RCA) supplies both the right and bottom parts of the person's heart.
I am wondering which one is not working of these three.
<SPAN style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Transmyocardial Laser Revasularization (TMR): TMR is an alternative for persons who are not potential candidates for either bypass surgery or angioplasty. During TMR a surgeon uses a laser catheter in order to create a number of pinholes in the person's heart muscle. These holes encourage the growth of new vessels in the heart muscle. TMR is a procedure that can be performed alone, or in conjunction with a coronary bypass surgery.
This may be someting you could ask your husband's physician about but I know it will depend on how strong your husband's condition is.
My oldest sister died 2 years ago of a massive heart attack. She went to surgery for quad bypass of clogged arteries and a mitral valve replacement. She went into cardiogenic shock and from their went on life support so this is one of those things you just don't know what the outcome will be.
Her cardiologist told us she would do fine and be off life support in 5 days..............she never did come off and we tranferred her to a major cardiac center but the damage was to great so just keep on belieiving as we never gave up until the decision was made by her God that it was her time to leave us behind.
I can tell you many stories of great successes too. Miracles do happen my new friend.
I have you in my prayers so just stay in the moment and cherish each minute of each day.
Many gentle Hugs to you,
