Depends


Depends on the reason for the heart surgery, your weight, and general health. In general, a well balanced diet that is heavy in fruit and vegetables, substituting monounsaturated oils for other fats, and light on salt is considered to be an excellent heart healthy diet for everyone.

Sensible calories


There is no special cardiac diet for rapid weight loss. I would recommend watching calorie intake with a balanced diet. Rapid wight loss can be harmful.

Is surgery always necessary for heart disease? I am hoping that I can control my heart disease with medication, and better diet and exercise habits. Will I end up needing open heart surgery in the long run? .

It depends


Often, heart disease is treated with lifestyle modification and medicines. Sometimes it can be treated with procedures involving needles and wires but not surgery. Open heart surgery is only considered for some heart diseases, and then only when the risks associated with such invasive surgery are outweighed by the benefits of surgery.

Can increased heart rate sometimes during the day cause mitral valve leakage? Had mitral valve heart surgery three months ago.

Mitral regurgitation


Mitral valve leakage, referred to as mitral regurgitation, is a steady state and doesn't come and go but can fluctuate in intensity under certain circumstances. It can cause disturbances in the heart rhythm and cause the heart to race.

Had open heart surgery for my atrial septal defect 3 years ago. Everyday since then my heart skips a beat at least once a day, is this normal?

Answered by:
Dr. Sarosh Batlivala
Pediatric Cardiology

Maybe and maybe not


Depends on whether anything else is going on; i.e. any symptoms, passing out, chest pain, cough? Any changes on your ECG? A few "early" heart beats can be normal, but a cardiologist would have to ensure nothing else bad was happening and evaluate an ECG. Bring this to the attention of your cardiologist, but it is not immediately worrisome in the absence of significant symptoms.

Definitely


Total correction will be advised. Need to go to Cleveland or Columbus. Your pediatric cardiac surgeon and pediatric cardiologist will advise about timing and if staging necessary. Depending on the severity of the right ventricular obstruction and pulmonary artery and valve status, timing of procedure will be advised.

I'm 52 M from India. Had heart surgery (CABG + MVR) in october, 2012. Current INR 2.10, BP - 114 / 74. How much salt per day should I take?

High blood pressure?


If you don't have HBP, and I assume following surgery that you don't have congestive heart failure, you don't need to restrict your salt. A normal diet has 4-6 grams of sodium chloride and that should be fine for you.

Yes, but...


Without knowing what kind of surgery it is hard to be completely sure about recommendations, however some caffeine is likely quite safe. In general, it is good to be moderate in using such stimulants as caffeine as they can result in fast heart rates and elevated blood pressure. But as exercise can also raise heart rate, what happens with caffeine should not be a problem.

Yes...


you likely had mitral valve prolapse at your age. Symptoms can feel like a racing heart or palpitations. Caffiene and other triggers including stress can bring on the symptoms. If your heart is otherwise healthy with a good repair, you should be able to have caffeine in moderation. If you have an irregular heart rhythm like atrial fibrillation, caffeine may increased heart rate response to afib.
