Coronary artery disease


Coronary artery disease (abbreviated CHD) - It is a disease, uniting angina, myocardial infarction, and atherosclerotic cardio. IBS develops due to insufficient blood supply to the coronary arteries of the heart due to narrowing of the lumen.

Coronary artery disease today is one of the most common diseases in the world.

Unfortunately doctors, and patients, treatment of this "disease of the century" drugs under-performing. Because tablets are not able to "dissolve" cholesterol plaques inside the vessel of the heart. Over the years, the plaque grows, obstructing blood flow, and the prospect of a myocardial infarction can become dangerous. Required coronary artery bypass grafting - the hardest surgery. Unrest close, long months of recovery, frightening word "disability" ...

But do not despair. In our cardiology there is an alternative and tablets, and complex operations: High-tech catheter sparing intervention - coronary angiography and balloon angioplasty and stenting of the coronary arteries.

Judge for yourself: These procedures do not require anesthesia, to be safe and well tolerated.

The very next day after surgery you will be walking, and less than a week - go back to their normal work without any restrictions.

Why there is coronary heart disease?

With age, along the inner lining of the coronary arteries appear fat fatty substances, such as cholesterol. These fatty deposits called atherosclerotic plaques.

As a result, arteriosclerotic plaques impede blood flow to the heart muscle, what we signaled chest pain - angina. So developing coronary heart disease.
