Coronary heart diseases

Coronary arteries (vessels which provide the blood supply of heart muscles) of the affected patients are calcified and constricted. The constricted vessel is not able to provide enough oxygen for the supplied heart muscle zone. This way an oxygen supply disorder develops that can be symptomless, but usually it causes problems, predominantly characteristic chest pain (angina pectoris).

 

Ischaemia (myocardial infarction)

A severe form of coronary heart diseases is myocardial infarction which results in death of the heart muscle. The oxygen deficiency may cause heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias and sudden cardiac arrest.

 

Causes

High cholesterol or triglyceride level, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, smoking, lack of exercise. It is more common among men.

 

Treatment

Drug therapy, cardiac catheterization.

We examine both the stressed and the calm heart muscle and with this test we can discover the constricted vessels, the blood supply of the heart and we can estimate the degree and reversibility of the injury.

 

DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES:

Myocardial perfusion test
