Alternatives to angioplasty surgery - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
Doctor : How can I help you?
User : My Father (Age 53) is complaining for little pain near heart while walking long distances (after half kilometer), after showing 3 cardiologists and having a angiography, doctors said bypass or angioplasty as early as possible, now i am searching for anything alternative to angioplasty, after some research i found some alternatives to angioplasty
but not sure if anything would be as suitable as angioplasty, plz give me advice as early as possible as doctors are asserting for angioplasty for the earliest
I found these alternatives : Atherectomy, AngioJet, Chelation or Chelation Therapy, Powerful clot-dissolving drugs and drugs to lower their cholesterol, Beta blockers and Ace inhibitors,Exercise-diet, Laser angioplasty
Also, can you say me if i want to consult, which doctors to see, i mean right now the doctors we showed them are MD (Medicine) and DM (Cardiology) degree holders, any higher than these medicine degree holders to see? if yes what should be their medicine degrees
PS. : My Grandmother died last year of the heart problems and my Dad's big brother died last month, my Grandfather is also complaining the same problems and doctors have asked him for angiography
WHILE RESEARCHING ON INTERNET I FOUND ANGIOPLASTY IS NOT EFFICIENT AND THERE ARE MANY COMPLICATIONS AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY FOR HEART ATTACK IN FUTURE, ITS JUST AS EFFICIENT AS SOME DRUG MEDICATIONS FOR LIMITED TIME
PLZ GIVE YOUR SUGGESTIONS
THANKS, GOD BLESS YOU !!
