Today, I'd like to share with you a patient experience, because it might be a question that you've had yourself. Just today, I was asked by a patient, "if my arteries look okay on C.T. imaging if I've got a zero calcium score, can I stop my cholesterol tablets?"
Today, I'd like to share with you a case, a story about a man I saw this last week. This gentleman was in his early 60s. He's a very fit, slim, and active man who has looked after himself over the years. He does exercise regularly, and he is keen to make sure that he has the best heart health.
Today, I want to talk a little bit about what happens if the valves of the heart stop working. Well, before I cover that in too much detail, what I'd like to do is quickly remind us of how the circulation works.
