Matters of the Heart - Avoiding Unnecessary Pain

Over the past few years, Mr. H, a generally healthy and active gentleman experienced shortness of breath and some chest pain. Despite the symptoms, it took him quite a while to approach a doctor for an assessment.

 

Eventually he was referred to a cardiologist that performed a stress ECG which Mr. H was unable to complete. As a result, a cardiac CT was performed as well as a diagnostic angiogram.


After reviewing the results, the attending physician observed severe narrowing of Mr. H’s coronary vessels. His recommendation was to therefore perform a quadruple bypass, open heart surgery. Mr. H was quite taken aback by this direction. Open heart surgery was not an option he had foreseen.

 

 

Concerned by the recommended treatment, Mr. H contacted Medix and requested Personal Medical Case Management services to review his case, confirm his diagnosis and advise on alternative treatment options.

 

With his consent, Mr. H's imaging and medical reports were retrieved and sent for review with Medix' multidisciplinary team of experts in Cardiology and Cardiothoracic surgery.


Upon examination the Medix' specialists noticed that two of the blockages were located at a coronary juncture that is considered very difficult to graft by surgery. Even if done successfully, such a graft would not last long and would likely require revision surgery in the future. Since Mr. H was a relatively young man, the Medix specialist advised against undergoing open heart surgery and suggested that the narrowing should be treated in a minimally invasive approach through stenting.

 

Mr. H was happy with the recommendations, and Medix referred him to a leading local specialist who performed the stenting procedure successfully with no complications.

 

 

Two weeks following the procedure Mr. H was able return to his previous lifestyle and was no longer constrained in performing physical activities.
