i am Abid. My coronary angiogram findings are:
LMCA: free of desease
LAD: TYPE III, good size vessel having 30-40% stenosisat its ostio-proximal segment
LCX: Dominant, good size vessel having 60-70% stenosis at its distal segment .
RCA: non- dominant vessel and free of desease.
please give me a recommendation and comment on my heart condition. Do i need stenting or medical management will help??
It all depends on your symptoms, which I assume there are some, hence the Angiogram? If these were my arteries, I think I would personally consider having the LCX stented (60-70) as I wouldn't want this getting much worse.
I would leave the LAD (30-40) and change my lifestyle to a healthy diet, no smoking, regular exercise and of course regular blood pressure checks.
