Different types of heart diseases and their treatment
Heart valve repair surgery: Heart valve surgery is performed when a person is suffering from heart valve disease. This disease involves the non-functioning of at least one of the four heart valves. In heart valve repair surgery, the doctor repairs the valve or it replaces it with an artificial valve. In many complicated cases the best cardiologist doctor in Indore prefers biological valvesmade from pig, cow or human heart tissues.
Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG): CABG is performed when the person is suffering from narrowed and hardened coronary arteries due to the build-up of fatty deposits. In such a scenario either of two arteries is not able to supply blood out of the heart properly. CABG is the most commonly used heart surgery. In this procedure, all the renowned doctors in Indore choose a vein or artery from any part of the body and connect it past the blocked coronary artery into the heart.
Insertion of a pacemaker: The patients who are suffering from irregular beating of the heart i.e. a heartbeat too fast or slow heartbeat. Such a patient is advised to use a pacemaker insertion to regulate the proper rhythm of the heart. A pacemaker is an electronic device connected to a battery that regulates the rhythmic motion of the heart. Even the best cardiac surgeon in Indore implants the pacemaker under the skin of the chest. The pacemaker is connected to the heart chamber with the wires and sensors. The sensor detects any irregularity in the heart beat and then sends electric pulses to the heart to control the rhythmic heartbeat.
Heart transplant: In severe heart diseases, where the medical or any other surgical procedure is not expected to perform well and save the life of the individual, in those conditions a heart transplant is performed. In a heart transplant, the diseased heart is removed and replaced with a healthy heart from a diseased donor. This procedure is used for patients whose condition has not improved by any medication or treatment. It is done in cases of weakened heart muscles, coronary artery disease, congenital heart defect, heart valve disease or if the previous heart transplant failed.
