After balooning and stenting of coarctation, some patients develop restenosis after some years. In that case, re-intervention is necessary.

My wife's recent Angiogram report reveals 90% and 70% stenosis on right and left limbs respectively whereas the ABI (PT) and ABI (DP) ratio is 0.89 and 0.83 on both limbs. The vascular surgeon suggests balloon treatment for the right limb as soon as possible. But, the same treatment for the left limb 9 months ago did not improvise the condition. Kindly advise​ what to do.

We should concentrate on relieving the blockage and if stenting - ballooning is the option available than we should go for it and once proper blood supply is maintened we can concentrate on relieving other symptoms due to peripheral neuropathy

You will have to take blood thinning medication along with other medication which needs to be prescribed after clinical examination and it’s better for you to avoid climbing stairs or do any hard physical activity and you can take your judgment by doing a stress test every month but remember you will always be at a risk.

You can discuss with your Dr. and change to ecospirin-substitute called clopidogrel. You can stop xtor till your gas improves. Gas can also be treated with medicine. Suggest you discuss on phone for best results.

1) Keep your diabetes well-controlled. 2) You can do any exercise or yoga asanas etc that you feel comfortable about doing. In fact exercising and yoga is great for you. 3) If breathlessness on walking or climbing stairs is new then please consult your treating cardiologist for evaluation.
