A 63 years old lady with a heart issue was put on the road to recovery by doctors at Midland Healthcare using advanced technology and care to treat her from a near-fatal condition as she had a history of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
People often ignore telltale signs of heart trouble because of a lack of awareness and put their symptoms down to exertion or acidity. Mrs. Maya Saxena did not pay attention to the *frequent episodes of pressure or tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, and sweating that she was experiencing for the past few weeks.
She came to Midland Hospital, complaining of chest pain. Investigations revealed that she was suffering from a condition called anterior wall myocardial infarction, which results from occlusion of the left anterior descending artery (LAD)- the largest coronary artery in the heart. In simpler words, a heart issue which if left untreated, could be fatal to the patient.
The cardiologists at Midland responded swiftly and took her for primary angioplasty. Her’s was a high-risk case, as the patient was suffering from chronic kidney disease, and such issues complicate any cardiac procedure as the dyes used for the procedure could have caused further renal deterioration. However, early angioplasty within an hour (in this case, within half an hour) would cause complete cardiac recovery.
