My dad is 79 and had a heart
attack in September 2008. Diagnosis Description was as follows: "..was presented to ..hospital following an episode of left sided chest pain radiating up to the left shoulder. ECG on presentation showed ST elevation of 2mm in anterior leads. Troponin on admission was 0.03, peaking at 11.75.
On angiography, 90% thrombotic occlusion of proximal LAD, 50% stenosis in diagonal. PCI with bare metal stent undertaken to LAD. No significant disease seen in RCA and circumflex. Mild LVF with bibasal crackles, treated with frusemide, subsequently discontinued.
ECHO showed normal LV size. Extensive anteo-septal regional wall motion bnormalities. Mild to moderate LV impairment."
My dad just has had an ultrasound yesterday and was informed that he might have Ventricular Aneurysm
. Doctor asked him to come in and do another ultrasound in about 1-2 months time to make sure if he really get it.
My dad has no symptoms of heartache or whatsoever. He has been activity in activities such as swimming, jogging almost every day. The article I read telling me that Ventricular Aneurysm happend a few days after heart attach, but it has been 3 years since his first heart attack.
The assumption of Ventricular Aneurysm has made us very nervous and stressful. Would you think he really has got Ventricular Aneurysm or what is his chance of getting it? Thanks.
