How to Treat Coronary Artery Disease Without Surgery?
Coronary Artery Disease (ischemic heart disease) is a condition of blockage in the heart, one of the prevalent types of heart condition. Coronary arteries are responsible for blood flow to your heart. The build-up of plaque narrows or blocks your coronary arteries, obstructing the flow of oxygen and nutrients to your heart. This may lead to chest pain (angina), shortness of breath, sudden heart attack, or other complications such as heart failure or arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats).
NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT FOR CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE (CAD)
Coronary artery disease, also known as Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) takes a long time to develop and can reduce the risk without surgery. Medwin Heart Care Clinic features varied proven non-surgical coronary artery disease treatments that focus on achieving the best possible outcomes for your heart condition. With the right treatment and the expertise of our prominent cardiologist in Navi Mumbai, Dr Rishi Bhargava, Coronary artery disease can be cured and improve the function of your heart.
MEDICATION FOR CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE (CAD)
Various heart conditions can be treated with medicines including the risk factors of Coronary Artery Disease such as high blood pressure and hardening of arteries (atherosclerosis). Cardiologists recommend medications such as:
Aspirin: Blood thinner medicines that prevent blood clots.
Beta Blockers: Slows down the heart rate and lowers blood pressure.
Cholesterol drugs: Reduce plaque build-up in arteries by lower cholesterol levels.
Calcium channel blockers: Improve the symptoms of chest pain.
Ranolazine: Relieve chest pain (angina).
ACE inhibitors and ARBs: Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) lower blood pressure and help CHD from getting worse.
Nitroglycerin: Relieves chest pain by widening the arteries.
Thrombolytics (Fibrinolytic Drugs): Breaks up and dissolves blood clots to improve blood flow that causes heart attacks or stroke.
INTERVENTIONAL TREATMENTS FOR CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE
The most common non-invasive treatments recommended by our cardiologist for Coronary Heart Disease are:
Angioplasty or Balloon Angioplasty
Balloon Angioplasty is an interventional procedure that opens blocked arteries without surgery. Through a small incision, our cardiologist inserts a thin, flexible tube called a catheter into the narrowed part of the blood artery. The balloon is then threaded through the blocked artery and inflated to widen the artery which improves blood flow to the heart. ‘
In addition to this procedure, a small wire mesh tube (stent) may be inserted into the artery. Stents help keep arteries open and improve blood flow.
Stent Placement is performed at the same time as angioplasty. In this procedure, a small wire mesh tube called a stent is inserted into the opened artery. A stent is a permanent device designed to keep an artery open and reduce the risk of arteries narrowing again. In recent procedures, stents release drugs slowly to keep arteries open. The treatment takes up to 30 minutes to several hours and needs hospitalization for a day or two for recovery.
