Coronary Heart Disease Treatment
Heart Treatment Without Angioplasty Bypass
What is Coronary Heart Disease?
Coronary heart disease, also known as atherosclerosis, ischemic heart disease, or coronary artery disease, is caused due to the buildup of fat, cholesterol, or other substances within the arteries that deliver oxygen to the heart muscles. This buildup blocks the arteries, causing their walls to narrow down.
What Are Its Risk Factors?
There are many risk factors related to coronary heart disease, which are either controllable or non-controllable with medical intervention.
The factors that can be controlled through lifestyle changes and medications include:
The factors that increase the risk of atherosclerosis and cannot be controlled by any means include:
What Are The Common Symptoms Of Coronary Heart Disease?
In the case of mild fat or cholesterol build-up, you may feel pressure or tightness in the chest at times of increased activity or stress. If the buildup is significant, the blood supply to the heart muscle is severely reduced, causing symptoms such as:
How Is Coronary Heart Disease Diagnosed?
Poona Preventive Cardiology Centre offers comprehensive treatment for coronary heart disease. The doctors undertake thorough physical tests to assess the risk factors and current symptoms. Additional tests that make the diagnosis more accurate include:
To check the electrolyte levels, blood cells, clotting factors, and hormones in the blood. Proteins and specific enzymes are also tested as they can indicate certain problems within the heart.
It helps record the electrical activity of the heart when it is at rest using electrodes placed on the arms, legs, and chest. It also shows the changes that indicate the inefficiency of the heart muscles in receiving enough oxygen.
Exercise ECG/ Exercise Tolerance Test (ETT):
It is specifically designed to assess the heart’s response to exercise and stress. This test involves walking on an exercise treadmill or riding an exercise bike for up to 12 minutes while the ECG and blood pressure levels are recorded. It indicates the symptoms associated with coronary artery disease like shortness of breath and pain in the chest, jaw, or arm. Throughout the assessment, our doctor and our experienced ECG technician will be present at all times.
This test uses ultrasound waves to display the movements of the heart when it beats. We use the image produced to measure the heart’s precise dimensions, view specific structures like the heart valves, and assess any damage to the heart muscles.
Also referred to as a “stress echo,” here, certain medications are administered into the bloodstream through a drip while the echocardiogram is being performed. It helps to stimulate the heart and mimic the effect of exercise. This test is mostly used for people who are unable to exercise for medical reasons.
