Please Explain About The Ring Installation For Coronary Heart Disease?
I want to ask about mounting the ring
Hello Last Lf,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Ring (coronary stent) installation is an action / procedure performed on patients who have coronary heart disease, or have a blockage in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. Generally patients with this disease have symptoms such as left chest pain, can spread to the arm, see through to the back, or to the chin, accompanied by cold sweat. In this condition, if not treated can result in lack of oxygen to the heart muscle, which can ultimately lead to heart failure and ultimately death in patients.
The purpose of this action is to widen the blood vessels where the narrowing occurs due to the process of atherosclerosis (fatty). To perform this action, the heart catheterization process will initially be carried out, which will be inserted a catheter tube into a vein, through the veins in the hands or thighs, which aims to assess the level of blockage of the heart arteries, and if necessary (and approved by the patient / family) can be directly installed ring / stent at the same time. In other conditions, diagnostic catheterization and catheterization for the ring can also be done at different times.
As with all other invasive medical procedures, the installation of a heart stent also carries several risks, such as bleeding, blood clots, allergies, to severe (and relatively rare) complications such as seizures or strokes. However, generally the patient's complaints will decrease the heart condition will be better after this action. However, patients with heart disease are advised to routinely take medications, both to control blood pressure, blood thinning drugs, cholesterol-lowering drugs, and others for a lifetime. With proper treatment and patient compliance in undergoing treatment, the quality of life of patients with heart disease can be much better.
If you have been advised by a doctor to take this action, do not hesitate to always consult a cardiologist who treats you about why you need this action, indications and risks that can occur to you.
You can also read other articles about cardiac catheterization, as well as procedures and risks for heart stents. Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
