4. WARFARIN SODIUM

Thanks both of you to share your experience and knowledge. the three tests were done through two month period. I do have similar situation like Teresa has. But they are also a little different. I had a heart attack twenty three years ago. I had a thrombus in my LV since then. I had done tons echo and other tests, non of the findings were lower than 30%. Actually I have charted them, the trend is getting better. I do not know why the last three tests had so much different findings. Meanwhile I have a few typical symptoms like most patient have. such as short breathe( very miner), fatigue( Yes I do have it, but considering my age, it can be expected), no swell on my ankles, I do not need high pillows.. I swim three times each week, every time I swim 60 min. about 1500m cumulatively. I do not know what I should do about it.
By the way I just got a call from my cardiologist who suggested me to do MUCA test. He does not believe the reading doctor's findings from MRI. He said that there are lots human being factors involved.
I wonder which class medications are better drugs to improve LVEF.

Or is there other way to verify them?

I recently did three test to check my LVEF, they were respectively 50%,43% (Echo) and 25% (cardiac MRI). I do not know which one I should believe.

Mar 14, 2016 · What kind treatments can help me to treat my VL aneurysm? in Aortic Aneurysms

I am 75 years old, male. At 1995 I had a severe heart attack. The middle artery of my heart was 100% blocked. I missed the window for bypass or install stents. Therefore the front muscle of my heart died completely. Two years later one branch of left side artery had 75% blocked, doctors put a stent in it. Last year, the right side one happened again, doctors put two stents in it. My VL rate is 35%. I have short breathe, but not very severe. So far I am good in terms of daily life/activities. I swim three times (1km total within one hour period) each week. My general health is Ok. I am taking all kind medicine. Currently in my LV, I have an aneurysm in it. I just wonder: 1) Is any patient has similar condition? what treatments can be used to treat my problem to prevent my heart from getting worse (HF?). 2) Is there any way to join the volunteer research group. 3) Under which kind conditions that patient qualify to have doctors consultation? 4) What kind treatments can help me to treat my VL aneurysm?
