HEART PROBLEMS AND THEIR TREATMENTSIf you are above 60 of your age and having blood pressure, high cholesterol or
diabetes problem then you are on the target of heart disease. No doubt a person can
have heart problems in any stage of life.

We are sharing the some warning sign of
heart attack but someone can face cardiac problem without any symptoms also.
a. Pain or Discomfort in chest
b. Light-headedness, nausea, vomiting, heartburn or stomach pain
c. Backache, Neck or Jaw pain, continuous cough
d. Get exhausted, pain in arm, Shortness of breath, sweating, irregular
heartbeats and Snoring
All the above symptoms are leading to alarming situation of severe heart disease.
There are few types of arteries problems in which heart arteries didn’t supply the
nutrients and oxygen to the body by circulating system of blood. If you find out the
arteries problems, then usually problems are;
a. Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is very common heart disease in which heart
can’t pump properly due to weakness of heart muscles. This weakness results
the dilated chamber of heart. Usually DCM effects left ventricles.
b. Myocardial Infraction (MI) it is commonly known as heart attack. This is
usually occurs due to blood clots in the arteries which leads to interruption of
blood flow to coronary arteries.
c. Heart Failure in which heart muscles couldn’t pump the blood properly to the
body which is required to maintain the body active.
d. Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is very common inherited heart
problem. In this disease the wall of left ventricles become very hard and thick
for which pumping out the blood of the heard become difficult. This is leading
sudden death in athletes.
e. Mitral Regurgitation (MR) has the same symptoms as the acute heart failure.
MR is the condition in which mitral valve didn’t close properly and tightly
when the heart pumps out blood. This allows blood to reverse back to the
heart when it should release to the body.
f. Mitral Valve Prolapse (MVP) in which the valve between left atrium and left
ventricles doesn’t fully closed. It is the primary form of “Myxomatous
Degeneration” of the valve. Usually Mitral Valve Prolapse is not very serious
problem and not life threatening. Patient requires only medical management.
g. Pulmonary Valve Stenosis (PVS) in this situation heart can’t pump the blood
into pulmonary artery due to deformation on or close to your aspiratory valve
which limits the aspiratory valve opening and reduces the blood circulation.
TREATMENTS- There is two ways of treatment available for all major heart diseases;
A. By medication- There are bundle of best medication available for majority of
heart disease in India.
B. By surgeries- Heart surgeries are intensive option to provide cure for a patient
when the heart problems are too severe to cure with medication or other way
of treatments but surgeries take longer time to recover. Most common
surgeries includes;
1. Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) if the patients are
suffering from discomfort in their chest, or severe heart blockages then
doctors insert a balloon catheter into narrowed blood vessels and open it to
start blood flow without any restriction.
2. Coronary Arteries bypass Grafting (CABG) is a surgical procedure to improve
poor blood circulation to the heart. It might be required when the coronary
arteries providing blood to heart are blocked or limited functionality.
3. Surgery to repair or replace heart valves either mechanic or biological.
4. Pacemaker or electronic machine to regulate heartbeats in the case of
arrhythmia problems.
