A heart attack is the abrupt loss of heart muscle tissue brought on by an artery blockage, which is typically triggered by the creation of a clot on top of an already present plaque accumulation. Chest, arm, and neck pain are the most typical symptoms. With today's technology, clogged arteries can be opened again, maintaining heart function and heart muscle. Therefore, it is crucial to seek medical attention as soon as chest pain and related symptoms appear.
Your heart can be tested under stress to see whether it has any potential coronary artery blockages. Workload is gradually increased during the test while an electrocardiogram is being continuously monitored. The level of the test is predefined and mostly depends on heart rate. Stress testing is frequently carried out alongside nuclear or echocardiographic scanning of the heart muscle, these techniques improve our capacity to provide an accurate diagnosis. The test is typically administered to patients who have symptoms or who have a high degree of suspicion that they may have coronary artery disease, and those who have several risk factors.
Two on the right and two on the left, the heart contains four valves that manage blood flow. The aortic and mitral valves on the left side of the heart are where adult valve issues most frequently occur. These valves may stenosis, narrow, or experience substantial leakage. Heart valve abnormalities can manifest in a number of ways, such as chest pain, fainting, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeats, or heart arrhythmias. Cardiovascular catheterization and echocardiography are diagnostic methods used for assessment. In surgery, tissue or artificial valves may be employed, and mitral valve repairs, in particular, are becoming more and more technically complex.
Cardiac catheterization is the process of inserting a catheter of some kind into a blood vessel in order to measure pressures and/or introduce contrast material in order to examine the anatomy of the blood vessel or the heart. The injection of contrast material, which enables us to define a specific location, is more specifically referred to as an angiography. The process of mechanically treating an obstruction within an artery, typically leading to the heart, is known as intervention. Interventions can include balloon angioplasty, which enlarges an arterial opening that has been reduced by plaque. Nowadays, the balloon angioplasty is frequently followed by the placement of a stent, a mesh device designed to preserve the integrity of the artery's opening.
