Needs suggestion

Hi All,

On this 25th, my Uncle (Age-57) had a heart attack. Following is his Angiography Report details:

Sheath Size: 5F

Catheter: JL & JR 3.5

Contrast: Omnipaque

Dominance: Right


LAD: Mid LAD 50-60% stenosis

Diagonals: N

LCx: N

OMs: N

RCA: Mid RCA 60-70% stenosis



Could anyone please suggest how critical the condition is and what are the things he should take care of. Please let me know if any other details (like Eco report or prescription of doctor) is required. He is also coughing since then. more

Very nice. Thanks to all the Doctors for being part of the community. It will go a long way.. more  
there r 2 blockages 50-60% and 60-70% , a block is significant only if it is more than 70%,hence both the the stenosis or blockages are not significant.what r the medications he is taking?i think he can be managed conservatively on medicines. more

This report of Coronary angiography alone is not sufficient to give any opinion.there are several other factors which need to be considered like any H/O Diabetes,Hypertension,, smoker or non-smoker,any other associated ailment and medicines he is on.It is advisable at this time to keep in touch with your treating Doctor. more
