51 year old male chest pain – conclusion

by on July 2, 2011

Here is the conclusion to 51 year old male chest pain

EKG revealed an acute inferior wall ST-elevation myocardial infarction. He was transported directly to the catheterization lab. Catheterization documented 100% occlusion of the mid-right coronary artery (RCA) and 85% stenosis within the promimal left anterior descending artery (LAD). The RCA was treated with aspiration thrombectomy and stent deployment. He was given 2 days to recover and then the LAD lesion was addressed. The LAD stenosis was successfully treated with a drug eluting stent.
