I think the second "cardiac" is followed by "isthmus",but I can't currently make out the next line which might describe it's condition!

Roger

Added: I think the next line ends in "...2 months",which doesn't give me the greatest confidence about my initial reading!

Agree with that - first for 5 years second for 2 months - I think. Can't read what is just in front of 2 months though.  :-\
