This reduces blood flow to the heart muscles and decreases blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the heart. The reduced blood flow, in turn, leads to symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath. Sometimes a heart attack may also occur without any apparent signs or symptoms. If you feel that you are at high risk or have a family history of coronary heart disease, you should get a doctor at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla road. Your doctor will ask questions about your medical history, perform a physical exam, and order routine blood tests. He or she may suggest some other diagnostic tests such as electrocardiography, echocardiogram, exercise stress test, nuclear stress test, cardiac catheterization and angiogram. Treatment for coronary artery disease usually involves lifestyle changes and, if necessary, some medications and appropriate medical procedures. At Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla Road, your doctor will encourage you to make healthy lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, eating healthy food, and exercising daily. He will also prescribe drugs such as statins, aspirin, beta-blockers or calcium channel blockers, Nitroglycerin or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, and angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). Sometimes your doctor might do more aggressive treatment that can be life-saving and time-sensitive. These treatments include angioplasty and stent placement (percutaneous coronary revascularization) and Coronary artery bypass surgery. • CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING (CABG) Coronary bypass surgery is used to redirect blood from a section of a blocked or partially blocked artery in your heart. In this procedure, a healthy blood vessel is taken out from your leg, arm, or chest, and it is connected both above and below the blocked arteries in your heart. This creates a new pathway, and the blood flow to the heart muscle improves significantly. This improves the symptoms, such as chest pain and shortness of breath, and can improve heart function. At Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla Road, your doctor might consider coronary bypass surgery if you have severe chest pain caused by narrowing arteries supplying the heart muscle. This bypass surgery might also be performed in emergencies if you get a heart attack and other treatments are not helpful. If you are having elective coronary bypass surgery, you will be admitted to the hospital on the surgery morning. Before the procedure, the anesthesia team will give you general anesthesia to make you sleep and connect you to a heart-lung machine. Your cardiac surgeon will then perform the coronary bypass surgery. It generally takes around three and six hours to perform the procedure. After completing the grafting procedure, your cardiac surgeon will restore your heartbeat and disconnect you from the heart-lung machine. You will then be moved to an intensive care unit, where you will stay for one to two days. While you are still in the hospital, your cardiac rehabilitation will start, and if there is no complication, you will be discharged from the hospital in a week. • KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION A kidney transplant is a surgery in which a healthy kidney is placed in your body. It is usually done when both your kidneys fail and stop working. After the transplant, the transplanted kidney takes over the work of your two failed kidneys. This new kidney helps make urine and eliminate the waste from your body. At Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla Road, the surgeon will first set an appointment with you, ask questions about your health, perform a physical examination and assess if you are a good candidate for a kidney transplant. He or she will also perform some laboratory and radiological tests. Your name will then be put on a waiting list. The wait for a new kidney can be long as most transplanted kidneys come from a donor who has died. Once a donor with a kidney has been found for you, you will be called for transplant surgery. Before the surgery, you will be given general anesthesia to help you sleep, after which the procedure will start. During the transplant surgery, the surgeon places the new kidney in your lower abdomen and connects the new kidney's vessels to your artery and vein. After the transplant, you will be moved to an intensive care unit or transplant recovery area where you will be managed for few days, after which you will be discharged home. After you leave the hospital, your doctor at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, Okhla Road, will schedule frequent follow-ups as you continue recovering.
