Dr. Steven Reisman, a Cardiologist in New York City (NYC), discusses former President George W. Bush's Stent Procedure on the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News
Date:8/9/2013

NEW YORK, Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center announced that Dr. Steven Reisman, a  New York City Cardiologist and Director of New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center, appeared on August 6 on the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News to discuss the interventional stent procedure that former president George W. Bush underwent the same day in Dallas, Texas. At Mr. Bush's annual physical examination at a medical facility in Dallas on August 5th, reportedly a blockage was found in one of his coronary arteries and he was referred the following day for an angiogram and the insertion of a coronary stent to open up the presumed blockage in one of his coronary arteries. Although it was not disclosed what procedure was done at the medical facility, it is likely an exercise test and/or a CT angiogram may have been performed.

Dr. Reisman discussed the possibility that stents may not be risk free. In view of the possibility that a  blood clot can form at the stent and also that restenosis can occur, patients are frequently put on anti-clotting medications. These particular medications can possibly lead to side effects such as bleeding.

Dr. Reisman was also asked how one can pick up early signs of a significant blockage that may require a stent. This can be done by the use of exercise testing, most accurately by the use of a nuclear stress test such a thallium stress test for the evaluation of reduced blood flow during exercise, which is a sign of a blockage. In addition, early detection can be accomplished by the use of a relatively new device called EndoPAT, which measures endothelial function. The endothelium is the inner lining of the blood vessel and it normally dilates in certain situations. In the arteries of the heart, abnormal endothelial function occurs early in the course of atherosclerosis. The appearance of endothelial dysfunction may predispose certain individuals for development of atherosclerosis and plaque over an extended period of time.

Dr. Reisman also discussed the importance of risk factor evaluation including checking for elevated lipids, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, family history of coronary artery disease, and obesity. He also emphasized the importance of lifestyle modification, including diet and exercise.

As a cardiologist in New York City, Dr. Reisman also is frequently featured on both local and national television. To obtain more information about his TV appearances, go to www.newyorkcardiac.com.
