Poll: What Would You Recommend?
Your 69-year-old female patient with low-level exertional angina is referred for coronary angiography that reveals three-vessel CAD. After a lengthy discussion, the “heart team” (involving an interventional cardiologist and a cardiac surgeon) determines that CABG is the best revascularization option for this patient. A carotid Doppler study, conducted in preparation for CABG, reveals 80% stenosis of the right common carotid artery, although the patient has never had a TIA or neurologic symptoms.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
