I am a 43 year old female. Recently had a stent implanted into my mid LAD the report says it was a high grade lesion. LAD was 99% blocked. I am curious as to what high grade means?
The first time I had chest pains it came on while I was asleep. It woke me up was fairly severe and lasted for 2 hours before just suddenly disappearing, Dr. tell me that I did not suffer a heart attack (thankfully) but I am curious about this first experience since it did come on at rest and lasted for 2 hours, would that be angina? If so what type would it be?
