heart attack


Posted by balajiwins

I am a 36 years old from India who recently was detected to have acute coronary syndrome with troponin T up to 0.98 ng and underwent PTCA and drug eluting stent placement to the left circumflex artery which was found to have 100% stenosis in the angiogram(single vessel disease in the LCx). Now that after 35 days the PTCA, I am highly worried about getting a second heart attack, or myocardial infarction, or even sudden death. My doctor said there is nothing to worry since I have adequate LV function, but I want to know whether it will be possible for me to live without the fear of having a second heart attack at least for the next few years? Everywhere in the net, the American Heart Associations’ website says that 24% of men will die within one year after the heart attack and the thrombosisadvisers.com website says that acute coronary syndrome carries a risk of recurring within 2 months.? Please help me
