All You Need To Know About Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (Heart Surgery)

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist
Ask Free Question
Coronary artery bypass surgery is a surgical procedure wherein blocked coronary artery or arteries (blood vessels that supply blood to the heart) are bypassed with blood vessels taken from the legs, arms or chest area. The procedure is performed to re-establish normal blood flow to the heart and is mainly used to treat coronary heart disease or coronary artery disease (cad). 
A person suffering from coronary heart disease receives less supply of oxygen to the heart as his coronary arteries get blocked by fatty material. This accumulation of fat within the walls of the arteries causes these blood vessels to become narrow, leading to problems like chest pain, abnormal heart rhythms, and shortness of breath, among other things. 

Where do these bypassing blood vessels come from?

Depending on the extent and location of the blockage as well as size of your coronary arteries, different types of grafts (blood vessels) may be used for the procedure. The grafts that are employed during the procedure are the following:

Internal mammary arteries: these arteries are the most common grafts used for the procedure. They are located in the chest area and are kept in their place of origin so as to not disrupt the flow of oxygen through these blood vessels. They are known to provide the best long-term outcomes and better rate of survival compared to others. 

Saphenous veins: these blood vessels are taken from the leg area and are attached from the aorta to the coronary artery, below the place of blockage. Generally, these veins are inserted using minimally invasive procedures to prevent scarring and to ensure quicker recovery.

Radial artery: situated in the lower part of the arm, radial arteries are removed for use as grafts. But this graft option is not prescribed for people suffering from conditions like raynaud's disease (a rare disorder characterized by the numbness of the fingers and toes in times of stress or cold temperatures), painful fingers during winters or carpal tunnel syndrome (a medical condition of the hand and fingers brought on by the compression of the median nerve travelling through the carpal tunnel of the wrist).

The different procedures for heart surgery:
Open heart procedure is the most preferred surgical option for bypassing blocked coronary arteries. During this procedure, the heart is stopped for some time and is put on a heart-lung machine so as to enable the surgeon to perform the necessary bypass. Beating heart bypass surgery or off-pump procedures, wherein the surgeon carries out the surgery without stopping the heart is also increasingly being used. 

Apart from these traditional procedures, minimally-invasive procedures like robotic procedures (a surgery in which a mechanical device is used) or key-hole surgery (surgery that sees very small incisions being made) are also performed to restore blood flow to the heart. These procedures are becoming increasingly popular as they provide a shorter recovery time and hospital stay alongside less scarring issues.

Why is Coconut SO good for you?

MS (Psychotherapy and Counselling), Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda
Ask Free Question
Apart from its use in many Indian homes for traditional reasons, coconut has several health benefits to offer -

1) Helps diabetics by slowing sugar release into the bloodstream.
2) Boosts metabolism and increases energy because it is more likely to be burned as fuel than stored as body fat.
3) Helps treat malnutrition because it is easy to digest and absorb.
4) Kills disease-causing bacteria, fungi, yeasts and viruses because of the antimicrobial effects of its fatty acids.
5) Prevents strokes and brain disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
6) Prevent tooth decay - coconut oil fights bacteria responsible for tooth decay and could be a healthy, non-chemical additive in toothpaste and mouthwash.

She can eat healthy food without starving. No fats or sugars , lots of salads minus salt , fresh fruits , a glass of toned milk & curd , an egg (if she can take ) Remember dieting after a certain age is difficult because one cannot exercise as much as a young lady , secondly digestion gets weak with time , bones hollow due to less calcium. Something advised for young may not work and be practical for her , but oats as you have mentioned she is taking are good for all age groups. She may not loose weight so quickly and it is not wise to wait for heart valve surgery ,it should be done at the earliest. simultaneosly make dieting a habit for her.

Hi, practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body. Exercise more. To help lower your blood pressure, you should incorporate more exercise into your daily routine. You can try both aerobic exercises such as walking, jogging, or swimming and resistance or strength training. The american heart association recommends that for overall cardiovascular health, adults get at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity at least 5 days per week for a total of 150 minutes. You can also get at least 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity at least 3 days per week for a total of 75 minutes and moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity at least 2 days per week. If you feel that this is more than you can manage, the aha insist that you do as much as you can to start. Any activity is better than no activity. Do your best to get as much exercise as you can. Even if it is going for a short walk, that is better than sitting on the couch. This can have the added benefit of helping you lose weight. Both a healthy diet and exercise should result in weight loss, which can lead to significant falls in blood pressure. Cut down on alcohol: heavy drinkers who want to limit their alcohol intake should slowly lower intake over the course of several weeks. Heavy drinkers who suddenly cut back alcohol intake put themselves at risk to develop severe high blood pressure quit smoking and limit caffeine consumption. Use herbal remedies. Although not scientifically verified, there are several herbal remedies which are thought to help hypertension. As a rule, however, don't substitute these unverified herbal remedies for proven scientific advice. Instead, supplement your diet with them if they are approved by your healthcare provider. Try holly leaf extract, which is used as a tea in china and is supposed to help blood vessels enhance circulation and blood flow to the heart. You can also try hawthorn berry extract, which is supposed to improve the supply of blood to the heart and help to support the metabolism of the heart. Taking garlic extract is supposed to help prevent heart disease. High blood pressure and cholesterol are also rumored to be somewhat controlled by garlic. Hibiscus, which you can get as a supplement or drink in tea, can act like a diuretic and may have actions that mimic medications such as ace inhibitors and hypertension medications. You can also try ginger-cardamom tea, which is used in india to naturally reduce blood pressure. Drinking coconut water, which contains potassium and magnesium, can help with normal muscle function. Taking fish oil, which is a concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, may help with fat metabolism and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke include lots of fruits and seeds in your diet. All the best.

What happens to your Body when you Quit Sugar

MD - Diabetology, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS
Endocrinologist
Ask Free Question
On an average a person consumes nearly 800 calories daily from added sugar. This does not just include natural sugar found in fruits or milk but the processed sweet sugar as well, that is added to cakes, tea, coffee, confectionery and even pasta sauce and salad dressing. However, it is possible that you can limit your sugar intake or even quit it to get some truly amazing benefits.

When you take this hard decision, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as mild depression, anxiety or restlessness. But if you remain adamant and continue with your decision, your body will soon show some incredible results that you couldn't have imagined.

Here are a few of them:

1. Your heart will beat happily

Sugar raises insulin levels that activate the responses of sympathetic nervous system thereby elevating your bp and heart rate. When you cut down on sugar, your ldl cholesterol will decrease by 10% and triglycerides will reduce by 20-30%. And your risk of heart attack will reduce manifold.

2. Your weight fluctuations will be gone

With the exception of fruits, sugar is mostly present in processed or high-carb foods that contain loads of other unwanted constituents like fat etc.

So when you quit sugar, your body has to no longer worry about those unwelcome calories and your weight will stop moving right and left across the scale.

3. Digestion will become efficient

When you quit sugar, the digestive system becomes more efficient. Since your stomach and intestines have to no longer worry about those difficult to digest processed foods, their abilities and functioning improves. Even your colon begins to work better, may be you take more trips to the restroom, so things get even more on track.

4. No more acne troubles

Sugar triggers acne troubles. When you cut it down, you will no longer be troubled by those zits that dampen your looks. Your skin will actually clear up, cracks will disappear and you will get a healthier skin.

5. You will no longer have sweet craving

With sugar, there is a huge negative, as you enjoy sweets, you crave for more sweets. But if you quit sugar, slowly you will begin to avoid foods that contain sugar and as a result, whenever you will eat anything that has sugar, it will taste over sweet and you will not be able to have large portions. This means no more cravings for sugar!
