Suggest treatment for blockage in renal arteries

My question is: how soon will stem cell researchers find a way to grow new heart muscle and the blood vessels to feed them? Several years ago a cardiac surgeon butchered me, blocked blood flow to two parts of my left ventricle and robbed me of an active life. I would like to return to a normal existence.

Hi welcome to HCM.
I understand your query and concern.
Blocked renal arteries can be due to elevated blood pressure.This needs adequate timely investigative protocol.Curative stenosis can be due to inbuit stenting procedures.I advise you to have a baseline 2 dimensional echocardiography,ECG and lipid profile to assess the basic cardiac reserve of your heart.Restrict the intake of salt to less than 6g/day.Regular physical exercise in the form of brisk walk for 20 min a day for 5 days a week is pretty useful.Drugs like antihypertensives and antiarrhythmics will help.Reduce the intake of fatty and fried food.One pomegranate a day will help to keep your heart at good pace without clot formation. Stem cell procedures are still under research.Stent insitu will be curative in your case. Consult a Cardiologist for further expert management.
Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
