The Effectiveness Of PCI Therapy For Weak Hearts?
can pci cure a weak heart?
Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
PCI or Percutaneous Coronary Intervention is a therapy given to patients with narrowing or blockage of blood vessels in the heart. Narrowing or blockage of the arteries in the heart usually causes symptoms of chest pain or tightness that is often seen as a heart attack. PCI is performed by placing a kind of ring or ring to dilate blood vessels. PCI can restore blocked blood flow, so that pain or tightness is no longer felt.
Weak heart or cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle in which the structure and function of the heart muscle is not normal without any disturbance of the heart blood vessels. The severity of the disease varies widely, from causing no symptoms at all to causing serious problems, such as heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, and death. In general, a patient with a weak heart will feel tired quickly, swelling especially in both legs, palpitations and a rapid heartbeat, dizziness and tightness, chest discomfort, and high blood pressure.
Patients with weak hearts should immediately see a cardiologist. Doctors will usually undergo various tests for weak hearts, such as blood tests, chest x-rays, heart records (EKG), and echocardiography or ultrasound of the heart. Treatment of weak heart is mainly done to relieve symptoms and prevent complications. Treatment steps will depend on the results of the examination by the doctor.
It should be noted that a weak heart is an abnormal condition in the heart muscle, while PCI is a therapy given to treat narrowing or blockage of the heart arteries. In other words, PCI cannot cure a weak heart.
That is the explanation from me. Hope this helps you.
