One non medicated stent was fixed in one of the arteries leading to heart nine years ago. Now there is no problem. Everything is all right. What is the life span of a non medicated stent? Whether let it remain inside or it should be removed out or it should be replaced? Please advise.

Dear sir, once a metallic stent is implanted inside your artery of heart it remains there for ever whether medicated or nonmedicated. How ever they do develop blockage over time. Which varies from person to person and other parameters such as diabetes, high bp, cholesterol, smoking etc. Some develop over a year some take 10 years but some never develop any significant blockage. It's less common with medicated stents. Once a stent is implanted it can't be and need not be taken out. It becomes part of your blood vessel. In the event of blockage repeat stenting or bypass can be done. If you are alright then you can carry on with your life and take your medicines regularly. Thank you.

Paroxysmal, non valvular atrial fibrillation no symptoms, tee showed sec.Do I need to go for angio?

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
If you are diagnosed by cardiologist, as it seems, he can say what are to be investigated. The advantage of tee over tte is usually clearer images, especially of structures that are difficult to view transthoracically (through the chest wall). I could not understand what you meant by" tee showed sec? if your cardiologist says you need an angiography you should trust. If there is any doubt you can take second opinion from a reputed cardiologist.

Concor contains bisoprolol which is a beta - blocker. They are known to cause erectile dysfunction. You can stop concor and start Tab Nevy 5mg once a day .It is also a beta -blocker but doesn't cause erectile dysfunction. Keep monitoring your BP and heart rate and give me feedback.

Hi Bed is not be used for eating and as a workstation. Bed is for sleeping purpose only. These issues are quite commonly seen with youngsters who are addicted to mobile ,tablet lap top etc. You are getting into problems because of wrong postures and neck flexion and this will cause stiffness of the neck and back. So change your habits and you should be fine. If you want specific advise about diet, nutrition and life style changes take a consultation.

Any schedule check up to catch any heart difficulty.
If one does not have symtoms of heart disease like chest pain or breathlessness on exertion palpitations any loss of conciousness or syncope one can takr it that he might not have any heart problem. But oatients with high blood pressure or diabetes can still have heart problem without much symptoms. An ECG is the first screening test that should be done. 2D Echo can be done if required on advise.

There are various dangers of smoking. 1) Worsening of lung function over a period of time leading to COPD. 2) Increased of lung cancer and other cancers like oral cancer, laryngeal CA. Etc 3) Increased rate of atherosclerosis and it's related complications like stroke (लकवा) and heart attack. These risks start decreasing the day you stop smoking. Repeat test after stoping smoking. For cholesterol stop high fat diet like butter ghee and start exercising. That should be enough.

Pls suggest any antioxidant tab which can help lower down cholesterol and any tablet which can do weight loss.
How are you. Friend, there is no good solution in medicines or tablets to lower weight and to lower your cholesterol. Better concentrate on exercises, diet habits etc. Medicines to lower cholesterol are called as statins. Antioxidant medicines come under nutritional products and they are not as effective as other activities that I suggested.

Hi. Blood pressure is something that keeps fluctuating. This shows that your body is capable of increasing bp when required and normalize it when required. So nothing to worry about this. Bp problem is when your bp is continuously high. Take care.

At 22, even if this is not heart pain now, chances of getting it in future are more because of smoking. Time to give up smoking, smoke is ruining your lung & heart health.

I am 33, having sinus tachycardia so taking tablet (telmisartan metoprolol) suggested by cardiologist since 2 yrs. BP absolutely normal 120/80 whenever I check it. Stil 5 months back I was feeling some needle type pain and reading about heart issues made me scared so done EKG. Which shows abnormal EKG with probably mi infarction but impression was no significant changes in the t-st wave. But doc said sometimes machine is at fault so done stress test which I ran well and completely normal. 2d echo was normal too except mild mitral valve prolapse but again doc said lot of ppl hv it. Now last 3 nights on finishing work had to wake till morning and sleep 4-5 hours but changed timings. Now some very small needle type around chest on off comes and goes but now really concern is once I lie down I get sleep quickly (since past a month). Once I am in deep sleep, I may hv strange dream which makes me suddenly wake up and even eyes open I can see that dream for mini seconds and heart is racing and it gets cool down in few min but once woke up not able sleep easily. Today afternoon while having nap, same thing happened, was very sleepy as earlier day not slept much, after few min of slept I murmur some string and found heart racing and woke up. After that I might slept 1: 45 am today and got up 1: 52 with hand thrown feeling and heart racing. Then I able to sleep like. 3 am and nd got up around 4 with palm of hand felt any, heavy,yellow in color but once I woke up it gone in Mili seconds and heart racing which cools down in few seconds. Now almost every time I sleep since 2 days it's happening. Guys please tell me anyone experienced or to whom should I consult.
