I'm not a health professional but I've learned a bit while trying to understand my many procedures. A few of the terms aren't familiar to me, such as the word 'tight'. I assume that means that there is severe blockage in England (am I right, Ed?).
The word 'Diffuse' refers to widespread damage or blockage.
The word 'Ostial' refers to a blockage and the juncture where a main artery branches off. These can be dangerous areas for blockage and what led to my bypass surgery.
'Diffuse' generally refers to widespread arterial damage.
The good news is the Ejection Fraction is good, meaning that the heart is still healthy and can probably recover with surgery, good medications, diet change and exercise. Is he diabetic? I certainly agree with Ed, lifestyle changes need to be made.
