Update from the Cath Lab–Angioplasty

by

Trish just got a call from Dr. Leigh in the Cath Lab.  He said they were almost done and wanted consent to do an angioplasty as they detected a narrowing in the pulmonary artery.  We can deduce from this that, first of all, they were able to get all the access they needed and, second, that they were able to get good images of the heart.  So, the angioplasty would fall among the interventional steps I mentioned previously that Dr. Dan can do to improve Rudy’s outcome when it comes to the Glenn.  They’ll insert a balloon in the catheter to open things up.  We live in an amazing world!  Hoping my next post will be the one to tell you he’s out and Trish is on her way upstairs.
