Case Study – Coronary Heart Disease
The silent threat.
We recently performed a CT coronary angiogram on a 64-year-old man.
He had none of the classical risk factors for coronary heart disease (CHD) but admitted to an occasional twinge in his chest when exerting himself.
His CT angiogram images demonstrated an almost total blockage in one of his main coronary arteries.
He was immediately contacted with this result, and we arranged urgent admission at his local NHS Hospital where the next day he underwent an emergency procedure to insert a stent (hollow metal tube) across the blockage.
He was discharged after 2 days and has remained completely well since then.
Undoubtedly, the Echelon Health check-up and subsequent stent insertion averted a critical situation and prevented him from suffering a heart attack.
