    Calcific aortic atherosclerosis (HELP) I don't know what this means

    I had a ct scan with contrast and this showed up on the ct scan. I have no idea what they are talking about and the little bit of information is not helpful at all. Can anyone tell me something about this? The only other thing that is written says, "The abdominal aorta measures only 18 mm." Again, I have no idea what all this means. Can someone please help me?!

    Is this all that can be done?

    My husband is 73 and back in 2010 he had 4 bypass surgery. Since that time he has had stents several times. Back in August of last year, we were back in the hospital with a heart attack...again.
