 What to a keep in mind for good heart health post angioplasty

Poor lifestyle and dietary a choices are two of the primary  a causes of a coronary heart a disease. While Covid-19 has an impacted healthcare a delivery across all a specialties, cardiologists and heart surgeons have been a cautioning a regarding the virus' impact on a person's heart a health, with or a without surgery.

According to a Sanjeeb Roy, senior an intervention cardiologist, Jaipur, cases of a poor heart health are increasing rapidly in the country. If the patient sees symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, fatigue, then the patient is at a risk of a cardiac arrest or heart attack, if there is a severe blockage in the arteries, it is treated by angioplasty or bypass surgery.

An angioplasty is an interventional procedure in which a stent is implanted in the patient without a surgery. But sometimes even after having a stent implant, the a patient may have to a face some complications. According to an  one study, a after implanting a normal metallic a frame stent, there is a 15 to 30 per cent chance of it a coming back. Apart from this, the a patient has to take blood a thinning medicines for life, which also an affects their a quality of a life.

However, to a reduce all a these a complications, new technology like implanted stents will dissolve in the artery after two to a three years. Biodegradable scaffold stent a technology is very effective in a reducing the complications after angioplasty. This stent will dissolve in the artery two to a three years after it is an  implanted and the a patient's artery a will return to its a natural position, says the doctor.

"The biggest an advantage of this toa  the patient is that there is no problem of affecting the a functionality of the artery due to the placement of the stent. On the other hand, if there is a blockage back in his artery, then he can a have angioplasty again. The a biodegradable a scaffold stent is a technology that does not use a metallic a frame. This stent is made of polymers that will automatically a dissolve in the body after two to a three years of implantation."

"Advantages of a biodegradable scaffold stents are: After the stent has dissolved, the patient will not a need to a take blood thinners for a long time; If there is a need to doa  angioplasty back in the same artery in the future, then there are no a problems related to having stents already; Due to a metallic stent implant, there will be no problems in tests a like MRI, CT scan in this stent; The patient will feel psychological relief that there is no an  implant in his a body," says Sanjeeb Roy, while a mentioning a new a technology.

Here's what to keep in mind for good heart health post angioplasty:

* Avoid driving for a few weeks, and an even riding in the car for long distances. As your body needs time to a  recuperate, make sure you're using pillows to a prop yourself up and are a supporting the delicate parts of your  a chest a post-surgery.

* Do not be in a rush to a head back to an intense, high-stress life. Make sure your a day has periods of an activity interspersed with adequate periods of a rest. Make sure you are working in an environment that can a allow a you to lie down, an if need be.

* Shortness of a breath may be an  experienced for a few days. Avoid exerting an exercises and a climbing stairs, and if this a continues, speak to a family a member and your doctor or a surgeon.
