Guidance for CAD, Heart Patients undergoing CABG

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Guidance for CAD, Heart Patients undergoing CABG

What is CABG?

CABG or Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting is a surgery done to improve blood flow to the heart. In most instances there is a fatty plaque (CAD or Coronary Artery Disease) in the vessels of heart which reduces the blood flow required for normal function. The plaque may grow or harden with time and reduces oxygen-rich blood reaching the heart. Lowering of the amount of oxygen reaching the heart may result in Chest Pain - called Angina. The plaque may even rupture and form clots on its surface. The clot formed may mostly or even completely block the blood flow - leading to Heart Attack or Myocardial Infarction.

In CABG, a normal vein or artery from the patient's body is connected to the blocked coronary artery. Thereby bypassing the obstructing plaque and creates a new path along which blood can now reach the heart.

What are other options for Treatment of CAD?

Other than CABG options for treatment of CAD include - Lifestyle changes, Medications, PCI or Balloon Angioplasty.

PCI is a nonsurgical option where the blocked artery can be opened and generally a stent is placed at the point of blockage to keep the blood flowing.

Goals of CABG

CABG is done to achieve the following

1. Reduce the symptoms (Chest Pain, Breathlessness etc)
2. Improve quality of Life and helps to resume a more active Lifestyle
3. Improved pumping action of the heart
4. Reduce chances of Heart Attack
5. Improve chances of survival

Who needs CABG?

CABG is a surgical treatment for CAD.

Your doctor may recommend CABG if other treatments have not worked or he judges it good in his clinical opinion.

Decision will be based on factors such as -

1. Severity, Location and number of blockages
2. Response to other treatments
3. Your quality of Life and severity of symptoms
4. Other Medical conditions that you might have
5. Your Age and Medical History

Medical Tests that may be required to determine the need are -

1. ECG
2. Echocardiography
3. Coronary Angiography

THE SURGERY

Outlook


CABG is a relatively safe Surgery. The safety of the procedure will depend on your age, existing heart function, and experience of the Doctor.

What to expect before

You will need to undergo a few tests to prepare you for CABG such as - Blood tests, Chest X-Ray, ECG, Echocardiography or maybe Coronary Angiography. Doctors that perform CABG are Cardiothoracic Surgeons.

Things to ask your Doctor at this Stage -

1. What you can eat or drink
2. What activities are you allowed to do (e.g. smoking)
3. What medicines to take (Share all the medicines that you are taking for any other conditions)
4. As the outlook for surgery is heavily dependent on the number of procedures a Doctor has performed - it will be a good idea to get information about his clinical experience.

If you have already undergone all the tests - surgery may be done on the same or a day after the admission.

What to expect after

You will require admission into ICU typically for 1 or 2 days, to monitor your progress better after the surgery. You will be given oxygen therapy while hospitalized. You may also be asked to wear Compression Stockings while your movement is limited.

After you leave ICU you will require admission in the hospital for about 4 - 6 days.

Recovery at Home

Things to ask your doctor before leaving the hospital.

1. How to care for incision wounds and stitches.
2. How to identify signs of infection
3. How to identify conditions for which you need to call the Doctor right away.
4. When to make follow-up appointments

Common side effects of CABG wear off within 4 - 6 weeks but may include.

1. Discomfort in area from where the vein was taken
2. Itching and swelling at incision wounds
3. Fatigue, Loss of Sleep, Loss of Appetite
4. Constipation

Full recovery from CABG takes 6 - 12 weeks.

Your doctor will advise you when you can resume specific activities. If your work is not too demanding physically, it is common to return to work after 6 weeks. You can resume sexual activities after 4 weeks and drive after 4 - 8 weeks.

Ongoing Care

At you follow up visits you will require to undergo tests such as ECG, Echocardiography etc. to see how much your heart has improved. CABG is not a cure for CAD. A complete Treatment will always involve Lifestyle changes, Reducing weight, Medications, and Cardiac Rehabilitation Exercises. Your doctor will prepare a treatment plan for you including these things. Be sure to pay attention to them as religiously as your Surgery.

Mr. Lybrate-user, all the values shown are within normal limit. This shows good blood sugar control as well as hypothyroidism control. You should continue the same treatment and once 3 to 4 months check hba1c% and tsh levels. The oral anti diabetic drug that is being taken is a well known established drug giving specific results. Where as tab bgr - 34 so called ayurvedic anti diabetes drug, is a combination of some herbal medicines, considered to be useful in reducing sugar. It has not been tried in any human beings. There is no clinical study at all. According to the originators of the drug it was only tried in mice, where it showed 67% success rate, which is just as good as a placebo. Plus since there is no human study, I will not be able to recommend that drug to any person.

The symptoms that you are experiencing is not related to Thyroid problem. Cough after exercise can be due to what we call as air way hypersensitivity. 2nd possibility is that you may be having higher blood pressure. 3 rd you may need a thorough cardiac evaluation in particular TMT. Take care.

I hv diagnosed HyperThyroid since 2 year Taking the medicines mentioned below Are harm full?

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Mr. Lybrate-user, usually for hyperthyroidism, anti thyroid medicines are given 18 months to 2 years and stopped. Some times thyroid function returns to normal. If not, if hyperthyroidism continues then other means of treatment are looked at. Which include taking radio active iodine or getting surgery done. There is no mention about medicine or the dosage of it in your query. If you are looking for specific advise, then please give details like current thyroid test details and drug being taken with dosage and come in a private conversation, then I will be able to give specific instructions. Thanks.

Barking cough with vomiting is said to be due to pertussis i. E kali khansi. I am sure she must have been properly vaccinated including pertussis. Even then pertussis cough may occur. It is better to consult pediatrician in person.

Are the above due to hypothyroidism. Male 46, Weight 90 kgs, Height, 177 cms. BP 150/100 Medicines taking: cilnidipine 10 mg twice daily. Do I need further medical evaluation.

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. Usually with TSH < 10 mU/L, no treatment is advocated. However, if there are troublesome symptoms are present then treatment is given. In your case symptoms like constipation, fatigue and cold intolerance as well as weight increase are indicating that there is a need for treatment. Your BP is also not in good control (ideally with treatment it should be 120 to 130 / 70 to 80 mmHg). Thanks.

Diet and exercise is key for weight loss. Thyroid issue can cause max weight gain of 2-4 kgs. Rest weight gain is due to faulty eating pattern and lack of exercise. Imo lifestyle modification will help a lot. Consult any dietitian for weight loss diet plan.

Hi Anam Numbness of your hands could be related to thyroid problem. There might also be deficiency of vitamin B-12. You should start exercising daily for 30 minutes. simple aerobics will be enough. Start taking calcium, vitamin-D and Vitamin B-12 supplements. One tablet of calcium daily and One for Vitamin B-12 daily For vit.-D take cholecalciferol sachet weekly for 6 weeks. This solution is for now but it wont be permanent. For a permanent solution your thyroid problem needs to be treated and that is POSSIBLE with HOMOEOPATHIC medicines; you will be cured and there wont be any need of taking thyronorm. Your migraine will also get cured. For this a proper consultation is required so that your case can be analysed and treatment given accordingly. For this you can consult any good homoeopath or me as you are in Delhi only. Otherwise you can make good use of Lybrate.

Multi vitamins re useful in any situation. However, it is more beneficial to rely on natural fresh foods rich in natural easy to absorb and digest vitamins than rely on chemical based un-natural supplements.

Foods to Eat Nutrient-rich foods that improve your health may also benefit your thyroid gland, including: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables: Blueberries, tomatoes, bell peppers, and other foods rich in antioxidants can improve overall health and benefit the thyroid gland. Eating foods high in B vitamins, like whole grains, may also help. Selenium: Tiny amounts of selenium are needed for enzymes that make thyroid hormones to work properly. Eating selenium-rich foods, such as sunflower seeds or Brazil nuts, can be beneficial. Tyrosine: This amino acid is used by the thyroid gland to produce T3 and T4. Taking a supplement may help, but ask your doctor beforehand.

lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism causes a number of symptoms of which hair fall is a very common and one that resolves very slowly. It is not because of thyroxine, it is due to lack of it. Unless you control TSH value between 3 to 4 mU/L, most symptoms will reappear or remain. Thanks.

Hello, Eltroxin should not be stopped now, at the most the dose can be reduced. If Eltroxin is stopped now the TSH will rise again. Please consult your doctor so that he can look at your T3 and T4 results in addition to your TSH results and advise you about the dose of your eltroxin. Thank you .
