I am 66 years old, and in fair physical condition. I had an out of hospital Cardiac Arrest in 2011. Three stents were placed, (LAD, Diag and Ramus) In 2012 the Doctor ran a routine nuclear stress test and discovered "Anteroapical and anterolateral ischemic changes".
The upshot was that he placed two more stents in my heart, and I have been totally symptom free since.
For those of you concerned with this type of evaluation, there is hope for a brighter future.
By the way, I would like to contact anyone who has survived an out of hospital Cardiac Arrest. Please contact me.View Thread
