74yr old patient. Mvr done 2006, ejection fraction 40%. Diagnosed with hep c and liver cirohsis, genotype 1, sgot 169, sgpt 97. What I best treatment?

74yr old patient. Mvr done 2006, ejection fraction 40%. Diagnosed with hep c and liver cirohsis, genotype 1, sgot 169, sgpt 97. What I best treatment?

Tough situation: Is your background asian? If so, it is likely you have a favorable genetic background that makes interferon work really well to eliminate hepatitis c. But it can be very hard to tolerate in older patients with heart issues. And it depends on how advanced the cirrhosis is. I would probably wait for sofosbuvir, although approval may take a while. Talk to your doc and follow the news in the us fda. ...Read more

How can we increase ejection fraction from 20 %?

Cardiac optimization: By taking beta blockers to have an optimum heart rate of close to 60 BPM, taking Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitor to protect from remodeling, taking aspirin to protect from further risk of MI, taking Statin to decrease inflammatory and control lipids, undergo cardiac rehabilitation; sometime biventricular cardiac stimulator can help, also EP consultant may consider ablation if many PVCs. ...Read more

What is a normal ejection fraction in a 37 year old woman?

Ejection fraction: In 37 yf the ejection fraction should be normal between 55-70%. Provided you do not have any heart problem. To be precise exact, doctor has to know wt, cardiac out put, heart rate, stroke volume& lvedv. Women have slightly high stroke volume. Not very much gender difference for ef%.

What does the low ejection fraction mean? Diagnosis

Poor heart function!: Ejection fraction is a measure of the pumping ability of the heart, and a low ef refers to suboptimal pumping ability in a diseased or damaged heart. The lower the number, the worse the heart function or capability. Several cardiac or pulmonary diagnoses can have low ef; talk to your physician or cardiologist for specific information about your heart and its condition. ...Read more
