One Coronary Stent for Each Inning

Majid Ali, M.D.

 

A 74-year-old athletic man consulted me after nine coronary stents were inserted in his heart and two more into his kidney arteries, all during one trip to the the procedure room. Here is my conversations with him:

"Did you really have eleven stents put into you in one day?" I asked, incredulous.

"Yes," he replied matter-of-factly.

"Did you have a heart attack?"

"No."

"Do you have angina?"

No."

"Can you walk thirty blocks without chest pain?"

"I can do fifty blocks."

"And without shortness of breath?"

"Yes."

"And without air hunger?"

"Yes."

"He chops wood for fun," his wife chimed in.

"Then why did they put in those eleven stents?í

"Beats us," she said, frustrated. "Iím a registered nurse. I want to kick myself for allowing that."

"Why did you go to the hospital?"

"Our primary sent us there just for a routine check up."

Why nine?" I asked, looking at him.

"I guess one for each inning. He must be a baseball enthusiast," he replied wryly.

Everyone Will be Unwell

A recent government analysis predicts that the U.S. will spend $4.6 trillion in ten years, up from the current value of $2.4 trillion. My mind wandered back to what I wrote on the subject 17 years ago. In RDA: Rats, Drugs, and Assumptions (1994), I included a letter to the U.S. Congress that began with the following words:

Two elements characterize medicine in the U.S. today: The cost of health care continues to escalate, and the health of Americans continues to deteriorate. If the two trends were to hold, a time can be foreseen when the nation's total resources will have to be committed to health care, and everyone will be unwell.

The U.S. clearly continues on the disturbing trajectory which I foresaw eighteen years ago. The Americans, as I document in several articles, continue to get sicker. The incidence rates of most inflammatory and degenerative disorders in the U.S. are steadily rising.
