Mr.A is a 35-year old gentleman who visited Hardas Heart Care complaining a severe burning sensation in chest and pain radiating to the jaw.
The patient was instantly attended, his three consecutive ECGs at the interval of half-an-hour were reported normal.
Although the troponin-test or Trop-T (it measures the levels of troponin-T or troponin-I proteins in the blood, generally released when the heart muscle are damaged and indicates a heart attack)
To this condition, the treating physician and the cardiologist agreed upon coronary evaluation by catheter angiogram, which revealed a Widow-Maker or LAD lesion (a condition where the main artery is totally blocked or has a critical blockage, right at the beginning of the vessel)
This was immediately identified and treated by placing a stent (Coronary Angioplasty) via the radial arterial (a major artery in the human forearm it supplies the arm and hand with oxygenated blood from the lungs) approach allowing the patient to ambulate immediately and join back his duty the next morning.
This is a case of schematic thinking on patient’s persistent complaints and judicious judgments which allows a successful treatment of otherwise dreadful disease.
