Q.

Medical advice for myocardial infarction

Man. 70 years old. Last year he had a myocardial infarction. From the time he detected angina to hospital, it lasted for 6 hours. When he arrived at the hospital, he had a severe extent of myocardial necrosis. Then he accepted the surgery. He was alive. I have two reports. The first ultrasonic cardiogram report was for last year and the second one is for this year’s subsequent visit. If possible, I want to discuss it in detail. The LVEF for last year is 45%. LVEF for this year is 35%.

First of all, we know you are a male, but what was your blood pressure like, say in the last 20 years,  any diabetes, cholesterol smoking, etc. There was unfortunately probably already damage done before the actual symptoms started. The surgery could not reverse the whole process. You are lucky to be alive, it seems.
