Narrowly Failing the Test

When Mr. Hanson couldn't make it through a stress test, the diagnosis was: "narrowing of the coronary vessels", and he was recommended open heart surgery. Medix offered to look into a less invasive way

Over the past few years Mr. Hanson, a British engineer living with his family in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, had experienced shortness of breath and some chest pain. Despite the symptoms, it took him quite a while to approach a doctor for an expert assessment.
 
Eventually he referred to his cardiologist that performed a stress ECG which Mr. Hanson couldn't complete and was halted in the middle. As a result, a cardiac CT was performed as well as a diagnostic angiogram.
 
After looking at the results, the physician observed severe narrowing of the patient's coronary vessels. His recommendation was to perform a quadruple bypass surgery. Mr. Hanson was quite taken aback by the recommendation. Open heart surgery was not an option he was willing to contemplate before investigating other alternatives. 
 
In order to do so he initiated service with Medix. His imaging and medical reports were retrieved and reviewed. Mr. Hanson's case manager felt that another consultation was required.
 
Medix provided recommendations for the specialist and coordinated the appointment, ensuring that a clinical letter detailing the patient's medical information was sent prior to the meeting. Upon examination the Medix referred specialist advised against undergoing bypass surgery for a number of significant reasons.
 
Two of the blockages that were diagnosed in the angiography were located at a coronary juncture that is considered very difficult to graft. Even if done successfully, such a graft would not last long and would definitely require revision surgery in the future. Another reason was that the patient was young, and that the narrowing could be treated in a minimal invasive way through stenting. 
 
Mr. Hanson was happy with the recommendations, and the specialist performed the stenting procedure. The procedure was completed successfully with no complications. Two weeks following the procedure he was able to walk long distances and was no longer constrained in performing physical exercise.
