Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
it sounds like you were found to have narrowing of blood vessels in the heart coronary arteries.
the LCX is the left circumflex artery of the heart and feeds a lot of the heart muscles.
most cardiologist would recommend that you get a drug eluding stent placed in the area of stenosis to help keep the blood vessel open.
you may need to take some blood thinners after a stent is placed.
did your heart doctors talk to you about getting a stent placed in these blood vessels?
