At 3:20 a.m., Uncle Li, 62, was sent to the hospital for emergency treatment because of a sudden heart attack. After the operation, Uncle Li learned that the doctor had placed a stent in his body, and he began to worry: I heard that he would not live long after the stent was placed? Hearing Uncle Li’s question, the doctor replied: stents do affect life expectancy, but that’s an indirect positive effect and may extend the life span of patients with heart disease.
cardiac stent is to put stent in the area of coronary artery stenosis in the body to help open the narrow blood vessel, so that blood can flow smoothly from it, so as to improve the condition of myocardial blood supply insufficiency. It is no exaggeration to say that some patients with coronary heart disease are reborn because of the great technology of heart stent.
acute myocardial infarction: This is a kind of myocardial necrosis caused by acute and continuous hypoxia and ischemia of coronary artery. If the patients with acute myocardial infarction can not timely open the blood vessels, they can not survive. Therefore, it is very necessary to carry out heart stent surgery to maintain the life of patients, so that patients can increase the probability of survival.
angina pectoris: for patients with angina pectoris, if the pain has been unable to be relieved, it will seriously affect the daily life of patients, and most of the blood vessels in patients with heart pain are very narrow and nearly blocked. For them, the use of heart stent technology to open and expand the blood vessels in the body can effectively alleviate the symptoms of angina pectoris and improve the quality of daily life.
However, although cardiac stent surgery can alleviate the risk and symptoms, it can not solve the problem of coronary heart disease fundamentally. If you want to effectively extend life after cardiac stent surgery, you still need to pay attention to maintenance.
whether suffering from hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia or hypertension, we should actively control the three high levels. Hyperglycemia is easy to aggravate the blockage of blood vessels and even cause vascular rupture; and hypertension is also easy to affect the speed of blood circulation, resulting in insufficient blood supply; and high blood lipid is the main factor of coronary heart disease, especially the large number of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is more likely to have an impact. Therefore, these three types of hyperemia are several major hidden dangers in patients with coronary heart disease, even after undergoing cardiac stent surgery, they should be strictly controlled.
after cardiac stent surgery, patients with coronary heart disease should continue to take antiplatelet and statins, among which anticoagulant drugs can help prevent the recurrence of vascular stenosis and the formation of stent thrombosis; while statins can effectively help and solve the fundamental factor of coronary heart disease, that is, the effect of lowering blood lipid. It can avoid the accumulation of cholesterol on the blood vessels and cause the phenomenon of vascular stenosis.
cigarette and alcohol are independent risk factors for coronary heart disease. After smoking cessation, alcohol and other harmful substances in the blood vessels of the body will increase, even if the amount of alcohol in the blood vessel is increased, which will lead to the increase of blood pressure.
after the coronary heart disease patients have completed the heart stent surgery, they should also insist on returning for physical examination regularly, and pay attention to the blood pressure, blood lipid, blood glucose and blood viscosity. If these indicators are not properly controlled, they need to face the risk of coronary heart disease recurrence once every six months. If it contains three high patients, it needs to be reviewed every 2-3 months to prevent abnormal conditions.
