I know this probably sounds really stupid or ignorant, but if you have a Cardiac catherization, can they tell by looking at the different parts of your heart, that you have had a heart attack, how big it was, and what kind of damage you have? Does anyone know what a STunned myocardium is, and if so, what do they do during the catherization to fix it.
also, can you have a heart attack with small blockages in your heart, or does it have to be a fully blocked area?
Allso I know from foot surgeries and other parts of the body, that scar tissue forms and in my case it forms excessive scar tissue. If you have a heart attack, does the dead or injured part form scar tissue like in other parts of the body?
If so, can you remove it, or what function does it play if it is just scar tissue. Also what is meant by viable tissue and that hoping the area is still viable or alive? I have my catherization scheduled for Monday, five days from now and am trying to work out these last bugs in my mind. Thanks fluffypurrcat
