Thanks for your most valued reply.Sorry if I did not post what was found in my angioplasty. I was give a drawing of my heart which showed narrowing in 3 places. the main one was in the Circumflex marked 60% and two narowings in the 1st diagonal (1) 80% & (2) 70%. I am not sure if this suggests they are blocked this much or
open this much ie Circumflex 60%
open or closed ???.
Sinse my last post I have recieved a more detailed discript
ion( Copy of a letter sent to my doctor) This letter states that I should have a pressure wire assesment of the circumflex with a view to PCI.
I understand (but correct me if I am wrong) this is a fairly new procedure but will further prove one way or another that I will need an angioplasty or not. and is more reliable than just an angiogram and stress tests on there own.The angioplasty will be done if required at the same time.
Also since posting I have had a blood test ( waiting for results) to see if the simvastatin is giving me any muscular pain and I have lso had a scan on my stomach to see if I am having any problems with reflux which showed negative.
Another question if I can be so bold. is it possible to have elivated enzimes ie tropinin 1 with damage to other muscles in the body other than the heart? Best regards Dave
