Never Say Never: A Case Beset with Grim Doubt
Dig into the details as Dr. James Stewart explains how he successfully revascularized a 47 year old patient who had been turned down for CABG by 3 surgeons.
This patient with diabetes presented to a neighboring hospital with heart failure and was found to have challenging coronary anatomy:
- 95% distal left main bifurcation
- 100% CTO mid LAD
- 95% distal LCs
- RAC co-doninant, mild luminal irregularities. Supplies collaterals to LAD.
Learn how Dr. James Stewart used a heart team approach to successfully revascularize this patient with Protected PCI. The patient was discharged with an Ejection Fraction of 40% after 3 days in the hospital. At 30 day follow-up, the patient was back at work and doing well.
