In Reply to: Silent heart attack?? posted by baja200 on September 05, 2000 at 18:08:19:

I have recently seen a case of a silent infarction that reduced the capacity of the heart to about 30%. The attack was on the pulmenary side resulting in chronic congestive heart failure. This lady in her mid 80s has no recollection of this ever having happened!!!! No pain..... No symptions... nada! What is amazing is that she is still alive! Add on to this a damaged myatril valve and an atrial f. condition where she is in and out of sinus rythm all the time. It is truely amazing!
