|Subject: calcified arteries of 74 yrs male|
Following are the reports of my father.Kindly suggest if chelation could help him recover.
My father is 74 years old, and experied some chest pain along with pain in left arm and jaw some 20 days back.we got a CT coronory angiography done for him and following results were found:
Calcium score: 2370
Dominant artery : RCA
LEFT MAIN ARTERY:Eccentric calcific plaques are seen in LMA not causing any significant focal luminal narrowing.
LAD: There is diffuse disease inproximal and mid LAD with multiple eccentric and concentric calcific and mixed plaques. Exact luminal assessment is difficult due to partial luminal obscuration and blooming artefacts of calcific plaques, however there appears to be significant 70 - 80% FOCAL LUMINAL STENOSIS in LAD at entry level of D1 origin.
Long segment myocardinal bridging is seen in distal LAD
Diffuse disease inD1 vessel with multiple calcific and mixed paques.D2 is small in calibre and normal.
LCA:There is a diffuse disease with multiple calcific plaques in proximal,mid and distal LCX 30 - 40% focal luminal narrowing
RCA: origin is normal. Diffuse disease in RCA and PDA through out its course with multiple eccentric calcific and mixed plaques.Approx 50 - 60% focal luminal narrowing in distal RCA and significant focal luminal in proximal PDA.
