Causes Frequent Shortness Of Breath After Heart Ring Insertion Surgery?
Hello,. Meet me Rian. I want to ask. 3 months ago, my father just had a heart ring surgery. 1 month after, to be exact H + 3 Eid, my father had a heart attack. Then I confirmed to the doctor who installed my father’s heart ring. He said, maybe my father did not take the medicine he was given after surgery. After I asked my father, he confessed, I had not taken 5 of the 7 blood-thinning drugs in 2 weeks that the doctor gave to my father. Then the doctor said there was no possibility of a blockage, but a blood clot in the channel attached to the ring. The doctor suggested that Cateter be done to melt the clot. 2 weeks ago, after Friday prayers, my father fainted, because he felt dizzy, like lack of oxygen. Do Cateter have to be done? Because until now, my father sometimes still feels tightness and pain in his left chest after 3 months of oating, but it’s not too severe. What is the effect of not taking the medicine? Thank you, Regards, Maulana Refaz Berian.

A history of installing a stent or ring in a coronary artery is a risk of blood clots or blood clots in the area of the blood vessels attached to the ring. This will provide accompanying complaints that are uncomfortable for the patient after the ring, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, heart rhythm disturbances, cold sweat or recurrent heart attacks. This can occur because the ring is a foreign object contained in blood vessels, thereby increasing the body's resistance to this ring, which ultimately increases the risk of blood clots around the coronary arteries and or in the ring area attached. Thus, routine care and control as well as continuing treatment planned by the doctor are expected to help prevent all possible reiscos after ring installation.
Some of the complications that are often experienced by patients after ring installation are:
1. allergic reaction
2. clogged arteries
3. blood clots
4. recurring heart attack
If the heart doctor who treats your father suggests measures to install a catheter to help reduce blood clots, then this can be considered by the patient or family to continue this plan. thus the doctor can help prevent further complications related to the risk of blood clots and the risk of a repeat heart attack.
Going forward, you and your family should provide better supervision of the care your father is going through, so that your father can undergo a better recovery and treatment period.
Thus the info we can convey.
