My mother is hypertensive Patient. She takes anti hypertensive drugs. Still her blood pressure doesn't comes to normal. What to do.
Hi, My 5 years 10 months son was diagnosed with a tiny PDA (measurements PDA at PA end 1.1 mm). He had a normal birth, he is a normal child, he has no history of any conditions. I wasn't able to identify this issue until now because none of the doctors in the past found he had a murmur in his heart. Two days back when I took him to get his 5 years vaccination, its was a general check up by the pediatrician before vaccine and she found this murmurs and directed me to a pediatric cardiologist, and he took a echocardiography and ruled out this issue. The doctor told me not to worry because its a tiny PDA and he didn't recommend any cardiac medication or intervention at the moment as there is no LA/LV volume overload or PHT. He told he will review in another 6 months to see it the PDA has closed by its own and if it haven't, then we need to do a non surgical PDA closure procedure. The diagnosis was structurally and functionally normal heart except a tiny PDA. The report says: Ductus: tiny PDA left to right shunt (measurement PDA at PA end 1.1 mm Apart from that the other areas are all normal. I am a very concerned mother and he is my only son. After hearing this I am completely depressed and going through a lot of pain, even though the doctor convinced me its nothing to worry, I am unable to be normal. After the diagnosis I have been researching day and night regarding this and found out a lot about this issue. I read in many places that a PDA usually closes by its own before the age of 5, and if it doesn't it need to be closed by that PDA closure procedure. Why did my doctor give another 6 months to see if it will close on its own because my son is now 5 years 11 months. I also read in another place that PDA less than 2 mm need not to be closed, and the only reason it need to be closed due to the risk of IE and some doctors are suggesting that PDA can be only closed by the arterial route, increasing the risk of vascular damage just for limiting the benefit regarding prevention of developing IE in case of a tiny PDA. I am now totally confused whether PDA closure procedure is a risky for a tiny PDA or keeping it open is a risk. Please give me your genuine opinion regarding this and give me some comfort.

In addition to pumping blood to various organs, the heart also has its own blood supply, through which it receives its oxygen and nutrient supply. In patients with coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis, there is a narrowing of the blood vessels which reduces the amount of blood flow to the target organs, including the heart.
When this happens in the heart, there is chest pain due to overexertion of the heart muscles. There could be two patterns to this chest pain. With regular exertion like exercise, there would be chest pain, and most patients are familiar with this pattern.
This is known as angina pectoris or stable angina. In some people or in some instances, chest pain occurs which is sudden and not of a predictable pattern. It could be related to extreme exertion or stress. This is known as unstable angina and can lead to heart attack and be life-threatening.
Stable angina or angina pectoris has a stable, predictable pattern which most patients get familiar with over a period of time and learn to manage. Read on to know more about the signs and symptoms and management techniques.
Signs and symptoms: Stable angina usually occurs after a round of physical exertion. The patient feels a feeling of tightness in the chest which feels like the chest being squeezed. The pain can gradually spread to the shoulder, arms and even the neck. The pain can also be induced by eating, exposure to cold, emotional stress. It lasts for about 15 minutes and is relieved by rest and sublingual nitroglycerin. The pain intensity does not change with position or coughing. In addition, the patient may also experience shortness of breath, fatigue, profuse sweating, nausea, and dizziness.
Treatment: Immediate treatment to relieve the pain includes resting and sublingual nitroglycerin. On an ongoing basis, the treatment would include 3 approaches – lifestyle changes, medications, and surgery.
- Lifestyle changes: Regular exercise, smoking cessation, reduced fat intake, reduced alcohol consumption, weight loss, and stress management are some lifestyle changes to be made to improve symptoms.
- Medications: A number of medications would be used depending on patient’s symptoms. Aspirin to prevent clotting, medications to control blood pressure and cholesterol and diabetes.
- Surgery: In patients with advanced coronary artery disease, revascularization methods may be required, which includes angioplasty and coronary bypass.
In a person with known risk factors, it is advisable to have regular checkups so that the disease progression can be controlled and symptoms managed with minimal intervention.
