Annual clinical services overview

Case 1

65 yr male

3 weeks of SOB and chest pain

Admitted with trop positive acute coronary syndrome

Angiogram: severe three vessel disease

very poor left ventricular function

Usual management:

Too high risk for surgery with damaged heart so medical treatment with poor prognosis

Management at

Cardiac MRI:

Showed poor function but myocardium is still alive and highly likely to recover

Change in management following MRI:

Accepted for bypass surgery with good prognosis

Another patient showing white area of dead heart muscle


Annual clinical services overview

Narrow

Case 2

70 yr old male

Sudden onset troponin positive of chest pain

Angiogram:

Severe narrowings in all three main vessels

Blocked artery

Usual treatment:

Try to stent all three vessels [putting patient at risk of prolonged procedure plus requiring at least 2 guides, 2 wires, several balloons, 6 stents (£800 each)]

Management at

Narrowing before

Cardiac MRI:

Left coronary territory dead so no need to treat

Right coronary territory gets blood from circumflex so no need to treat

Circumflex territory alive and important so treat

Management change after MRI:

Only treat one vessel with one stent

No narrowing after x1 stent
