Your stent will not cause ecg changes. However the changes from an old heart attack or fibrosis will always be seen.

Gnarled, enlarged veins, most commonly appearing in the legs and feet. Varicose veins are generally benign. The cause of this condition is not known. For many people, there are no symptoms and varicose veins are simply a cosmetic concern. In some cases, they cause aching pain and discomfort or signal an underlying circulatory problem. Treatment involves compression stockings, exercise or procedures to close or remove the veins. And best treatment is medication.

And what is the procedure
How much time it may take to fully ...
DVT results in some permanent changes within the affected veins in the body. However these changes can be handled without causing any difficulties to lead a normal life. Regular disciplined life like consuming adequate drinking water, avoiding long distance travel without a break and regular use of compression stockings will be useful.

I am 50 years old I am a teacher I have varicose vein vascular surgeon told that no problem but you have to go for surgery is there any alternative without surgery it may cure.

Surgery is last option. You can use leg stockings. There are anothet methods such as sclerotherapy which is aminor surgical procedure but ultimately surgry is the only choice.

Shortness Of Breath - Can It Be A Sign Of Coronary Artery Disease?

Shortness Of Breath - Can It Be A Sign Of Coronary Artery Disease?

Coronary artery disease is one of the major killer diseases of the modern society. It is not a solitary problem but brings with it a multitude of issues including obesity, diabetes, stroke, and other metabolic disorders. A thorough understanding of what causes it and how to manage it can help save thousands of lives.

Causes: The circulatory system is mainly made up of the heart and a complex network of arteries and veins. The inner walls of these are lined with smooth muscles, allowing for free flow of blood. Gradually, over a period of time, given the density, the fat from the blood flowing through these vessels settles along the walls of these vessels. This attracts more fat, lipoproteins, and other inflammatory cells and so the process continues. This reduces the diameter of the blood vessels, therefore reducing the amount of blood supply to the target organs. If the target organ is a vital one like the brain or the heart, then it could lead to stroke or heart attacks.

Main causes for coronary artery disease include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, diabetes, and stress. Men are more prone than women, and family history and age puts them at higher risk.

Symptoms: Reduced blood supply to the target organ causes the following symptoms:

  1. Shortness of Breath: A person with coronary artery disease will feel short of breath and tired with most activities, even like walking a few meters.

  2. Chest Pain: A strong pressure sensation on the left side of the chest is an indication of coronary artery disease. Known as angina, it comes with stress and goes away once the stress is removed. It could sometimes radiate to the shoulder, down the arm, or up into the jaw also. These are classical symptoms of angina or heart attack and is considered an emergency. Of note, this is often mistaken for indigestion.

  3. Palpitations: A sensation where you are able to hear your heartbeat.

  4. Nausea and Excessive Sweating: Nausea and excessive sweating are also seen during angina.

Treatment: There are 3 modes to manage this.

  • Medications:

  • Surgical Procedures:  Surgical procedures including balloon angioplasty followed by placement of drug-eluting stents and coronary artery bypass surgery are done to manage more severe cases.

  • Lifestyle Change: Lifestyle changes including reduced fat consumption, decrease body weight, stop smoking, increased physical exercise, and reducing stress are highly important in preventing further damage.

Once suspected, coronary artery disease can be effectively managed and the extent of damage controlled using the above techniques.

Sir, I hve been suffering from varicose veins since 10 years at left leg. I am a man 24 years old. Now I feel pain. and its swelling. I want surgery hw much money cost sir?

If it is paining and swelling then it's definitely time for you to get treatment. Surgery costs approx 20-25000, but cost may vary between different centres. Laser treatment for varicose veins is the latest, but it's costly (approx 1 lakh)

What is the good treatment for varicose vain. What's the side effects of sclerotherapy.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Sclerotherapy can cause skin necrosis with scarring and also can cause thrombhophlebits or thrombhoembolism and nowadays laser ablation therapy treatment is the safest option for treating varicose veins.
