On Aug. 21, physicians at Mt. Sinai will treat a 90-year old male with CCS angina class III and uncontrolled hypertension. The patient underwent catheterization on May 24, 2012, which revealed coronary artery disease, moderate left ventricular dysfunction and 95 percent right renal artery stenosis. After initially undergoing percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the left renal artery and everolimus-eluting stent to circumflex-OM2, he still suffers from class II angina. He is now staged for percutaneous coronary intervention of calcified bifurcation lesions.
