Stories from people with heart disease

Hear directly from people who have been rejected for heart bypass, have a history of heart disease, who are being medically managed but are still having symptoms, or who had to seek out treatment for CAD.

Watch how pursuing therapy beyond medication helped Jake get back to living the life he wanted.
“I felt like I did 20 years ago, I couldn’t believe it.”

Back to his life after suffering even with medication

Jake suffered from chronic total occlusion (CTO), which made the vessels of his heart completely blocked. After open-heart surgery, and then medical management, Jake still had symptoms. After his minimally invasive percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure, Jake felt the relief that he had been looking for. If your doctor has prescribed medicine for your CAD and you are still not feeling like your best self, you may be eligible for a minimally invasive PCI procedure.

“I’m a new person, I got my heart back.”

Back to his life after looking for the right treatment—and the right doctor

Chan was diagnosed with chronic total occlusion (CTO), and had suffered two heart attacks. His physical activity became limited. After actively looking for a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) specialist and the right treatment, he was treated with PCI and got back to his normal life.

Even if you have other health conditions, you may still be eligible for a minimally invasive PCI thanks to recent advances. Talk to your cardiologist about the right treatment for you.

Back to his life after chest and arm pain and a visit to the emergency room.

Richard suffered from a heart attack after experiencing tingling in his arm and chest pain. He went to the emergency room where they performed tests and referred him to a cardiologist. The cardiologist recommended PCI with a stent to be placed in his artery to open the blockage.

Because of some preexisting conditions, Richard was at a high risk for bleeding complications. The cardiologist recommended a SYNERGY Stent because it has a unique bioabsorbable coating that is designed to enable shortened dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in certain patients, as DAPT is a blood thinner needed after the procedure but can cause bleeding complications.

Watch how the SYNERGY stent allowed Richard to get back to playing with his grandkids again.
