In the management of heart disease, treatment for the underlying cause is very important. Deprivation of blood in the heart due to heart disease is counted by the minutes and the outcome of the disease also depends on how early management was put in place. For example, if the individual has high cholesterol, then statins may be given to lower the level. Most people who have hypertension will have a cardiovascular disease over the long run of the disease. For these people, early control of the blood pressure is necessary. The management of heart disease is very important for the quality of life and survival of the affected individual. There are benefits and risks associated with select diagnostic tests and all treatment options which you should fully investigate and review with your physician before making a decision about the right options for you, with the exception of an emergency whereby 911 is likely your best resource. Having a Q and A with Your Doctor session may be beneficial to help enhance your understanding of options and how to arrive at a decision with reasonable expectations.
Irregular Heart Beat, also known as Arrhythmias
An irregular heart beat may be treated through a variety of methods, depending upon the cause and nature of the condition. Under select circumstances, medications may manage an irregular heartbeat, such as for beta blockers and anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy. A Pacemaker or ICD may be part of an appropriate treatment plan. Heart surgery is another option for select conditions.
Atherosclerosis of the Aorta or Carotid Artery Blockage
In Atherosclerosis of the Aorta or Carotid Artery Blockage, an invasive traditional cardiology procedure may be performed, known as cardiac catheterization. In this procedure, a stent will be placed in the affected blood vessel to regain its diameter and support its walls from tearing. Many people improve with Cardiac Catheterization, but there are risks associated with all medical procedures. Learn more about this option, as well as, less invasive and non invasive Atherosclerosis Treatment Options!
In people diagnosed with aortic aneurysm, two aspects must be controlled to prevent a dissecting aneurysm from occurring. The first aspect is the blood pressure (BP). Maintaining the BP to the normal range may prevent tearing of the aortic aneurysm. The second aspect is the change in the lifestyle and diet.
