Heart procedures caused by reduced blood flow in the heart as a result of blockages (plaques) in one or more coronary arteries may be treated using coronary angioplasty. In this procedure, a hollow tube (catheter) is inserted through an artery (usually the femoral artery in the groin), into the coronary artery, and to the blockage. A small balloon is then inserted through the catheter and is inflated to open the blocked artery.

There is a slight risk for damage to the artery during angioplasty, but heart failure symptoms usually improve following the procedure.

Coronary Angiography/Angiogram reroutes the blood supply around a blocked coronary artery. In this procedure, the surgeon removes a healthy section of an artery from another part of the body and attaches it to the Cardiac MRI so blood can flow around the blocked section.

Other treatments, which often depend on the cause of heart failure, include the following: -

Cardiac Catheterization
Coronary artery bypass surgery
Implantable cardiac defibrillator(ICD)
CT Angiography
Aneurysm Repair
Valve repair
Valve replacement surgery

Heart procedures persists or worsens in spite of treatment. An ultrafiltration process called aquapheresis, which uses a mechanical system called the Aquadex FlexFlow™, may be used to remove excess fluids and salt in CHF patients who do not respond to lifestyle modifications and medication

Heart procedures (including nose jobs and face-lifts) may not score high on that last criterion, but E P Study may be considered more necessary.

The type of Cardiac evaluation package you're planning will also be a factor. Abdominal procedures (such as a tummy tuck) are among the surgeries considered to be a higher risk for heart patients

Heart diagnostic Procedures :

Heart diagnostic Procedures available today can show doctors if you have heart or vascular disease. Or, if you already know that you have heart disease, these Heart diagnostic Procedures can show doctors if your disease is getting worse. Many of these Heart diagnostic Procedures produce "pictures" of your heart.

Heart diagnostic Procedures are more reliable than others, especially for detecting coronary artery disease. Your doctor will decide which test is best for you, based on your symptoms, your medical history, and your history of disease.

If you have Heart procedures, those risks may be greater. Patients with heart disease have a higher risk of developing deep-vein thrombosis, a blood clot that can form after surgery and create a dangerous blockage in the bloodstream. The anesthesia used to keep surgical patients unconscious can also cause problems when your heart is not strong enough

Treatment :

In this treatment, blood is withdrawn using catheters (small tubes) inserted into veins in the arm, leg, or neck. The blood is then passed through a filter that removes excess fluid and is returned to the body. Studies have shown that ultrafiltration can remove more fluid at a faster rate than medication. The length of each treatment depends on the rate at which fluid can be removed from the body and the amount that must be removed.
