Adult congenital heart

My Husband was diagnosed with a widow maker in February.  He had a heart cath.  He has a 60-70% blockage in his main artery.  They did not stent it.

 

Does anyone else have this problem?

 

Thank you.

    Good morning LPC009, Did the doctor say why they did not use a stent? How is your husband's recovery going? And how are you doing with all of this? Thanks, Katie

    They might be able to clear the clog.  When I had a heart attack, they discovered the first blockage grew it's own bypass, and was years old, but the second had a clog that was growing towards another artery, which would have blocked that one two.  Well, 2 stets later, the one artery was repaired, but that cardiologist didn't know how to handle the remaining clog.  The second cardiologist, who is now my cardiologist and a thoughtful man, helped and cleared all remaining clogs.  They might be able to do this.  One more thing.  Doctors know a lot more about hearts than ever before, and much of it is less invasive.  Take care.  God bless.
