My husband is active and 42 years old, recently developed chest tightness with exertion. We went through the whole gamut of tests-- stress echo, angiogram, CT angiogram. He has been diagnosed with anomalous origin of Right Coronary artery along with some blocks. Our cardiologist has recommended bypass surgery. We are terrified with this diagnosis.
There are conflicting reports about the usefulness of CABG for fixing this issue. Has anyone in this forum witnessed something like this? This is apparently a very rare congenital anomaly. Your feedback will be very helpful to us.
