Cardiovascular / Pulmonary
Sample Name: Cardiac Cath & Coronary Angiography
Description: Left Cardiac Catheterization, Left Ventriculography, Coronary Angiography and Stent Placement.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)
PROCEDURE: Left Cardiac Catheterization, Left Ventriculography, Coronary Angiography and Stent Placement.
INDICATIONS: Atherosclerotic coronary artery disease.
PATIENT HISTORY: This is a 55-year-old male. He presented with 3 hours of unstable angina.
PAST CARDIAC HISTORY: History of previous arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Previous ST elevation MI.
REVIEW OF SYSTEMS. The creatinine value is 1.3 mg/dL mg/dL.
1. Visipaque 361 mL total dose.
2. Clopidogrel bisulphate (Plavix) 225 mg PO
3. Promethazine (Phenergan) 12.5 mg total dose.
4. Abciximab (Reopro) 10 mg IV bolus
5. Abciximab (Reopro) 0.125 mcg/kg/minute, 4.5 mL/250 mL D5W x 17 mL
6. Nitroglycerin 300 mcg IC total dose.
DESCRIPTION OF PROCEDURE:
APPROACH: Left heart catheterization via right femoral artery approach.
1. Balloon catheter utilized: Manufacturer: Boston Sci Quantum Maverick RX 2.75mm x 20mm.
2. Cordis Vista Brite Tip 6Fr JR 4.0
3. ACS/Guidant Sport .014" (190cm) Wire
4. Stent utilized: Boston Sci Taxus RX Stent 3.0mm x 32mm.
LEFT VENTRICULOGRAPHY: The overall left ventricular systolic function is mildly reduced. Left ventricular ejection fraction is 40% by left ventriculogram. Mild hypokinesis of the anterior wall of the left ventricle. There was no transaortic gradient. Mitral valve regurgitation is not seen.
LEFT ANTERIOR DESCENDING ARTERY: There was a 95%, discrete stenosis in the mid left anterior descending artery. A drug eluting, Boston Sci Taxus RX Stent 3.0mm x 32mm stent was placed in the mid left anterior descending artery and post-dilated to 3.5 mm. Post-procedure stenosis was 0%. There was no dissection and no perforation.
LEFT CIRCUMFLEX ARTERY: There was a 50%, diffuse stenosis in the left circumflex artery.
RIGHT CORONARY ARTERY: The right coronary artery is dominant to the posterior circulation. There were no obstructing lesions in the right coronary artery. Blood flow appeared normal.
There were no complications during the procedure.
1. Severe two-vessel coronary artery disease.
2. Severe left anterior descending coronary artery disease. There was a 95% mid left anterior descending artery stenosis. The lesion was successfully stented.
3. Moderate left circumflex artery disease. There was a 50% left circumflex artery stenosis. Intervention not warranted.
4. The overall left ventricular systolic function is mildly reduced with ejection fraction of 40%. Mild hypokinesis of the anterior wall of the left ventricle.
1. Clopidogrel (Plavix) 75 mg PO daily for 1 year.
2. Aggressive risk factor modification of tobacco abuse, hyperlipidemia and hypertension.
