ST segment elevation myocardial infarction
Last Wednesday morning I had a massive heart attack. As you can see above, the LAD was 100% blocked and is not even visible on the initial cath scan. In the past, this type of cardiac event has been called “the widow maker” and prompted open heart surgery. In my case, I was able to have a stent placed.
Thanks to my wife and CPMC, I am recuperating at home now.
