Hi I am new and have a question I wonder if anyone out there can answer. My 41 year old sister was put in the hospital yesterday with what doctors thought was a heart attack, after doing a heart cath they determined she didn't have a heart attack and that her heart looks good and veins not blocked......but she has 6-8 veins growing from her aorta? Has anyone heard of this before and what is it called and what do they do about it? She is in a small hospital in Texas where doctors have never seen this before and so far have no answers for us. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Go in peace,
Go in peace,

Edith I don't know an answer for you. I will say that sometimes when an artery becomes blocked the heart will create it's own bypasses by growing new blood vessels, but if the doctors say they've never seen this before that is probably not what it is. I hope your sister comes out ok in this. I was 41 when my heart trouble started.
