My dad has 2 major blockage in right coronary artery we want to avoid bypass surgery what we have to do please tell us.
If the heart function is normal, he can live with it. Otherwise, it is better to get treated. He needs to avoid any exertion or anxiety which would cause his heart rate to go up. In addition he needs to continue blood thinners and rate control drugs His diet wise, he needs to take less oil, salt, sugar and carbohydrates, and increase protein rich foods. God bless.

Is there any medical which a person can have always and while Facing situation of HEART ATTACK he can can take and it will help it out immediately. If yes let me know the medicine name.
The 2 best medicines given during angina are sublingual nitrates and oral aspirin. But they are given to prevent progress of attack and not treat. Best is to go to a hospital immediately without wasting time.

Observed slight discomfort in morning walk in 2015.``ECG & ECHO negative then.In 2017 although ECG & ECHO negative, TMT mildly positive for inducible ischaemia. CAG done in 2017 showed SVD (100% lesion from proximal LAD.}.Ranopill 500, GTN sorbitrate. Rosufit CV10. Taking regularly since then with periodic checking. Taking up morning walk for one hour regularly with ease. Recently consulted one cardiologist for second opinion. After analyzing all reports, He said natural bypass has already formed.&& there is no threat. When I asked why medicine then, he told the Dr. who has prescribed can stop the medicine. My question is how to know natural bypass has really occurred, how safe is natural bypass, can stroke stroke/heart attack still possible, how to know whether the plaque has been dissolved, any preventive measures advised, overall assessment of my case. Presently sometimes I feel fractional breathing discomfort, fractional pinning effect. Sugar & BP normal. REGARDS.
It would be better to review the angiogram images to know about collaterals formed. Ideally for proximal LAD block intervention by angioplasty or surgical bypass is advisable if there is any artery seen distal to block. Due to continue in symptoms despite medication, it would be prudent to intervene.

Can a heart patient be given tetanus injection in case of an injury especially one who has recently undergone heart bypass surgery and on medications like Deplatt to prevent blood clotting? Please advise.
After a bypass surgery one needs to take blood thinning medications which prolongs the bleeding time but without any prolongation if clotting parameters. During this time one needs to be careful of any external injury due to the risk of bleeding. But one can get an intramuscular injection without any problem provided his clotting profile is normal.
He is heart patient ,who has undergone bypass surgery in March 2017, for extracting the teeth need to stop Clopitab A75 or not.
Yes, you need to stop it for 5 days before the procedure and restart it the next day. One can stop clopitab after 1 year and only take tab ecosprin 150 for life.

I have read recently that cholesterol is no longer considered as a cause for coronary disease or heart attack. Is this true. Or just junk mail forwarded to people. I have a slight level of cholesterol and wanted to eliminate it. Please help me.
Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Its a myth that cholesterol alone causes the heart attack, in fact there is what is called as good cholesterol (HDL cholesterol) which prevents any coronary artery disease from forming. The causes for these are multifactorial age, hereditary, diabetes, hypertension, sedentary lifestyle, diet being some. So, in my opinion, its not necessary to get anxiety attacks that your cholesterol is high. In the initial stages it can be controlled with diet and exercise and FYI you can't eliminate cholesterol from your body altogether. Kindly contact the nearest physician with your cholesterol report and get right advise about diet and exercise and stay happy.

My husband 34 is heart patient got attack in Jan 2017 45% blockage was there in angiography clot buster was given in which blood flow got started again in Jan 2018 our cardiologist called us in Jan 2018 did 2d echo n stress test. Stress test was negative n even 2d echo was normal with lvef 55% now he is taking juprios gold 10 n met xl 25 in morning now from last few days he feels heaviness under his left chest which make him worry alot he goes to doctor he checks his bp which always 130/80 give him some acidity tablets our family Dr. is bhms is it to show some special doctor n y he feel heaviness ĺ0.
Hi, Given his previous history of heart attack and documented blocks in the artery, any subsequent chest pain should be considered to be from heart until proved otherwise. I would suggest you not to neglect this heaviness and get it checked by a nearby heart specialist and evaluate before it causes any further concern.
Asked for male, 82 years old from Hyderabad
I am 82 years. 58 kg weight. Walk 2 to 3 km daily. Recently experienced slight breathlessness. Not sever or regular. My doc on seeing ECG said I had a silent heart attack sometime past and suggested 2D echo, triponin test etc. My BP is 130/80. Total cholesterol is 156. I converted to zero oil veg diet. Some yoga and pranayam. Should I have to go for further tests.
Hi Sir, Let me first congratulate you to have such active lifestyle and be fit at this age. Its commendable. Now coming to the breathlessness you are experiencing recently, there is no harm in doing these non invasive tests and rest assured if its normal and continue on with your active lifestyle rather than worrying every day about any calamity. The cholesterol and BP is absolutely fine and more often we see patients with absolutely no risk factors with severe blocks which sometimes in unexplainable. I suggest you continue the active lifestyle and get these tests done and be stress free. Moreover these tests are non invasive one which could be done in less than half a day.
