Promed Hospital successfully treated a 73-year-old man, who had three major heart vessels.
The patient who is a diabetic was also on dialysis apart from having hypertension and elevated cholesterol. Due to this, a bypass could not be feasible. Diagnosis and tests revealed he had total blockage in all three major coronary vessels, a rare condition.
Given the complications Promed Hospital was able to treat successfully. Dr. Arun Kalyanasundaram said, “The successful CTO PCI is a proof that any blockage can be opened despite complexity of the procedure. This should give hope for patients with similar conditions, and who have been told that they have no choice”.
