His care team was led by cardiologist Jerome Kuhnlein, MD. Following the results of his bloodwork, Dr. Kuhnlein confirmed Rusty had suffered a minor heart attack and would need a stent, a small, mesh-like device made of metal placed in his artery to allow blood to flow more freely.
Rusty learned his pain was caused from a blockage in his circumflex artery, which is behind the heart, so fortunately there was no major heart damage.
