What is coronary heart disease treatment?

Consultant cardiologist Ahmed Elgahamaz shares information about coronary heart disease treatment.

The treatment of coronary heart disease starts with diagnosing heart disease, whether you have heart disease and how bad or advanced it is. The treatment depends on these factors. The coronary artery disease is really narrowing in the artery supplying the heart muscle that’s defined simply as coronary artery disease. The treatment varies greatly from whether there is minor narrowing, the start of narrowing or quite severe advanced almost blockages of the arteries and whether one or several arteries are blocked and the treatment varies greatly according to these.

The most simple thing in very early stages is a simple lifestyle management and simple dietary changes where patients take charge of what they have so that they can alter the course of the disease, reduce or even stop the progression of the disease to the point where they may need physical intervention to reverse the blockages or narrowing…

The other end of the treatment, we offer the physical unblocking of the arteries using techniques like angioplasty, which is essentially a little bit of plumbing to the arteries to improve the blood flow to the heart muscle. That’s can be done very safely and easily. But we are aiming more to hopefully avoid the progression of the coronary artery disease to the point where patients actually do require that kind of intensive or interventional treatment.
