When Can Heart Valve Surgery?
Like this, I was diagnosed with a heart valve disorder. 2 months ago, already checked heart, tht, lung, cathlab, teeth, etc. as a condition for valve operation preparation. But until now there has been no further news from the treating doctor. Said his assistant, optimized dlu. What do you mean by that? So what is the obstacle of the thorax surgeon as a doctor who operates the valve so that the patient has to wait a long time. Thanks,
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Major surgical actions, especially those involving the heart as one of the vital organs in the body, can not be done with playfulness and without careful calculation. Many other types of surgery that do not allow patients to undergo surgery as long as their blood pressure is still too high, blood sugar levels are still not normal, and if you have a history of blood disorders.
In your case, the purpose of optimization here actually has no specific meaning. In general it is maximized, awaited until in the best conditions, but in what ways, we do not know. We do not know which part of your clinical condition is not optimal because we do not check you directly and you do not submit it. Examples are optimized for example if the blood pressure is 150/90, it may actually be able to do surgery, but it would be better if the treatment is optimized first to reach the normal range of 120/80.
Another possibility of placing the word optimization in this case is to maximize the non-operative treatment. For example in the case of cavities, the handling is not immediate by pulling teeth, but can by patching teeth first. So it can be optimized in the context of trying to patch it first, only when the tooth decay is severe enough, then revoked.
Once again the point is, before surgery, let alone a large and high risk, doctors must be very sure that the patient's clinical condition at that time is ready for surgery, and must be sure that there are no other actions that can cure or alleviate the patient's condition other than surgery . But in your condition, we don't know specifically what is not optimal due to limited information. For this reason, we suggest that you ask more critically and continue to the doctor or from other medical staff who handle you. It is your right as a patient to know everything about your illness, including treatment options and why they are suspended.
Meanwhile, what you can clearly do is maintain your body's endurance with adequate rest, avoiding cigarette smoke, alcohol and stress, eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, drinking more water and regularly taking the drugs given. So, hopefully answering your question.
