I would need more information to help you with this. Most significant lesions in one or 2 vessels can be treated with stents and results would be equivalent to bypass, with much quicker recovery. If all 3 vessels are significantly blocked, or if the blockage is particularly complex, surgery may be a better option. Often the cardiologist who diagnosed the problem will consult with a surgeon to come up with the best recommendation READ MORE

Diabetes can also be associated with fatty deposits in the heart muscle which can lead to cardiac enlargement and heart failure. READ MORE

Another common name for this is an angiogram. The basic heart cath involves inserting a catheter (small tube) through a blood vessel in the groin or wrist, and threading it up to the heart. Contrast (commonly called dye) is injected into the heart arteries to make them show up on an xray movie. This is to look for narrowing in the arteries (blockage) which may lead to a heart attack. Severe blockage can often be treated at the same time by placing a stent. The catheterization also gives information about the strength of the heart muscle and valve function. READ MORE
