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?

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.
