Symptoms Of Heart Blockage In Men
Can you tell me the chances of diseases of the heart (heart attack, stroke, blockage etc.) for a man in his forties?
Could a man with a big belly stomach triggers false positive thalum nuclear stress result and show shadow or false blockage at lower side of heart.?
Coronary: Angiogram either invasive or noninvasive but you are quite young to have any significant cad.
Balloons or stents: When needed (blockages >75-80% of lumen of coronary arteries) they can be opened with balloons (angioplasty) or "scafolds" inside the vessels called stents. At age 16 you should not be worried about blockages and the best thing you can do to prevent them is: do not smoke and live a healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise and avoid being overweight
Coronary artery dz: When we say heart blockage we generally are referring the coronary arteries which supply blood to the muscle of the heart. When these close off, it usually results in a heart attack. Mild blockages would mean there is some narrowing of the vessel but not enough to cause any flow problems. Borderline is not a specific medical term, but probably means that it beginning to be enough to watch.
Possibly.: An ECG may be entirely normal, even with severe blockages. An ECG can suggest blockage with changes that occur when the heart is actively receiving reduced blood flow, and will often show damage that has already occurred. Observing the ECG during exercise (stress test), particularly if coupled with an image such as echo or nuclear scan, will be more helpful in screening for blockages.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Ask about percutaneous coronary intervention. (angioplasty with stent placement).
Sometimes: Heart function sometimes improves after opening a blocked artery but not always, especially if you have had a heart attack in the past. Symptoms of heart failure or angina, such as shortness of breath and chest pain are more important than the number attached to your heart function. Best wishes.
Not likely.: Possible but not likely. Transient obscuration of vision is more likely due to a transient drop in blood pressure which could be from an electrical problem in the heart but not generally an intrinsic plumbing or blood flow problem unless of course the symptoms are strictly exertional. Other concerns are problems with vascular tone including side effects of meds and dehydration
My dad is going through a heart blockage which has a percentage of 40%. Can I know how and what would help to make this reduce?
Many things: 40% blockage is not critical and not obstructing blood flow following will help bp control cholesterol keep at goal LDL 70 or below hdl goal over 45 and total cholesterol 150 or below exercise program aspirin /and other platelet inhibitors can help too beta blockers ace/arb as indicated consult for help from your physician for guidence.
I was diagnose with myocardial and was told I have a 30% blockage in my heart. I am so scared and was not explained what I need to do?
Heart: You need to have better info from your cardiologist, where is the blockage what if meds or precautions you need etc, it all depends several factors which should be known by your doc
Very different...: I'm assuming by "heart blockage" you're referring to coronary artery blockage, also know as coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease (CAD) refers to the development of fatty deposits in the wall of the arteries in the heart muscle, ultimately leading to decrease heart function. If the function is impaired enough, it is called heart failure (hf). In short, CAD may lead to hf.
Early 50's. I have call it 30% blockage in my LADA...LBBB. Slight output issue;Meds for HBP. What can I do to lessen chance of more Heart Afflictions?
Optimization medicin: Plus lifestyle changes (walk even daily 30 mins, eat as much of a MEditerranean diet as possible, and de-stress = meditate). Given your LBBB, some plaque buildup and possible decrement in LVEF, make sure you are on the "holy water"= asprin 81mg, betablocker, preferably Coreg, (carvedilol) ACE inhib, statin. This combo + heart healthy lefstyle ought to stave off heart disease and hopefully reverse low output
Yes: But very unusual. Congenital anomaly with atypical origin and ischemia. Dissection of aorta with coronary obstruction by flap. Coronary embolism with atrial fibrillation, or septal defect and paradoxical embolus. Cocaine, other cause of hypoxia (and also usually damages brain. Trauma with tear of heart or stab etc whew that' s enough bad news!See 1 more doctor answer
