Coronary Artery Disease
- myocardial infarction
Arteriosclerosis = the loss of elasticity and hardening of the arteries, may be caused by hypertension, age, & plaque build-up.
MOST RISK FACTORS CAN BE CONTROLLED!
A BV, usually a vein, is extracted from the patient’s leg.
The vein is grafted (attached) to the blocked or narrowed coronary arteries
This re-routes the blood flow & the heart is able to receive O2
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Scan
- Produces cross-sectional images from gamma rays emitted by a radioactive tracer injected into body tissues.
