Common Questions and Answers about Heart catheterization mortality rate

Avatar n tn All I read is the high mortality rate from CAD It,s rather depressing,are there any new meds,procedures,vitamins anything posative for someone in my condition. And are my arteries going to get worse or can they be stabalized?I am 37 and there must be something to look forward too than angina pain and mortality from this the rest of my life.
Avatar n tn For elderly patients with aortic stenosis undergoing nonemergency valve replacement in recent years, the perioperative mortality rate is reported to be as low as 4 to 5%, and the surgical mortality rate is 5 to 10%, even if heart failure is present. The perioperative mortality rate is higher for patients undergoing aortic valve replacement combined with CABG than for those undergoing aortic valve replacement alone (4 to 6% for patients in their mid-70s, 10% for patients in their 80s).
Avatar f tn It depends on which form of supraventricular tachycardia someone suffer from, and more important, if someones heart is healthy or not. A healthy heart can usually tolerate supraventricular tachycardia without problems, and usually even ventricular arrhythmias without problems. An unhealthy heart can get problems with a rapid heart rhythm, through different mechanisms.
Avatar n tn At the Cleveland Clinic, we do thousands of stress tests per year and our mortality rate is 1 in 10,000 tests. Our patient population is sicker than the average patients who undergo stress tests because we have many sick patients referred to our institution for a second opinion. Unfortunately, your brother-in-law had no symptoms to indicate he had such severe coronary artery disease to alert his physicians prior to the stress test.

Avatar n tn Hi, Firstly, CHF is usually associated with elevated heart rate and not a low heart rate. The CHF can possibly due to the arterial disease as poor perfusion of the heart muscle can lead to CHF. Since his echo and cardiac catheterization doesn’t show any significant abnormality, I don’t think it’s due to a poor perfusion of the heart muscle. The possibility which needs to be ruled out is an electrical problem and not a mechanical problem of the heart.
Avatar n tn The Lipitor, coreg and lisinopril are all medications that had been shown to improve mortality in patients with heart dysfunction like your husband's. If he feels worse two years after the bypass surgery, it may be time to have a repeat heart catheterization to make sure that the bypass grafts are not occluded.
1101326 tn?1421682634 She had a heart catheterization a few hours ago and it's not her heart! Something is wrong, we still have to find it now.
Avatar f tn I would like to know the rate of mortality is with cardiomyopathy,with an EF of 40%, This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Heart-Disease/Re-COREG-SIDE-EFFECTS-FATIGUE/show/880855">Re: COREG SIDE EFFECTS-FATIGUE</a>.
Avatar n tn A cardiac catheterization sounds reasonable. If your low heart rate causes symptoms, a pacemaker is indicated also. It would be useful to also check your thyroid function tests (blood work) now. A stress test could possibly be performed before a catheterization, but even if it were normal, your doctors would probably still worry that you had coronary artery disease that the test missed. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back.
Avatar f tn 6 weeks ago, I had a ct of the chest to determine why I was becoming increasingly winded when walking short distances. my heart rate was also elevated. My normal resting rate of the mid 80s was n the mid to upper 90s. It turned out that I had a large pericardial effusion which was confirmed by an echo. I had a liter of blood drained. Three days later the symptoms returned and a repeat echo showed that fluid was reforming and the aortic chamber was collapsing. I ended up having a window.
Avatar m tn Went 9 minutes Achieved 85%maximum predicted heart rate. Stable blood pressure.131/86 No EKG changes. No chest pain. The report says 1. mild to moderate posterior lateral wall ischemia. 2.EF 76% 3. No wall motion abnormality Could you explain this. What next a heart cath?
Avatar m tn 23 mins,acheiving a work load of MAX METS 10.60.The resting heart rate was 75bpm rose to a maximal hear rate of 169bpm.This value represents 94% of the maximal.The resulting blood pressure of 110/80 rose to a maximal blood pressure of 160/80 mmHg. The excercise was stopped due to THR achived. Summary : Resting ECG:normal.Functional Capacity:normal.HR response to excercise:appropriate.
Avatar n tn If it does not, this may be an indicator of mortality. Should I be concerned about the difference between my heart rate of 60 to 100 bpm hours after exercise?
Avatar m tn The risk of alcohol ablation include a 2%-4% procedural mortality rate and a 9%-27% incidence of patients requiring permanent pacemakers. Like septal myectomy (open heart surgery), alcohol ablation has not been shown to improve survival due to the lack of randomized controlled trials and a suitable control population.
Avatar f tn I get Angina-like chest pain upon exertion, in cold weather and from extreme stress. Nitroclycerin helps to alleviate the pain normally. I have been evaluated thoroughly and have recently (2006) had a R&L heart Cath. and my Coronary Ateries clear of any plaque. My congenital heart doctor is guessing that the Angina is caused from Coronary Artery Spasms (variant angina). My Questions: 1) is there a way to determine this definitively? 2) is CAS dangerous?
Avatar m tn I read about a French study that showed that men that had a resting heart rate of more than 70 bpm were at a higher risk for mortality. I also read that if 10 minutes after exercising the bpm hadn't slowed 20 bpm it was also an increased chance. My heart rate seems to fluctuate throughout the day. Sometimes it is around 70, but usually it is higher. And after exercise it takes quite a while to slow down. Should I be freaking out about this?
Avatar n tn It is difficult to predict the exact prognosis, as this depends on other co morbid conditions like diabetes and hypertension and the cause for the low ejection fraction values. Patients with heart failure have a 5-year mortality rate approaching 50 percent in some studies. Regards.
Avatar n tn I am assuming he had a positive stress test ( with dye?) and not a catheterization. If so then he needs a left heart catheterization to further define the amount of blockages, and see what treatment needs to be initiated. Sure medical therapy can be started now and this should include a full dose aspirin, and a statin such as lipitor or crestor in addition to his metoprolol. His blood pressure should be well controlled with goal of systolic of less than 135 mm Hg.
Avatar n tn Are these episodes or your normal heart rate? If I have a rate at 110-120 when I am walking around daily, will this cause heart damage in the future? I try to assure myself by the 2 echos done 12 years apart. Both normal! I am tired of being anxious over this.
Avatar m tn Hello my mom is considering catheterization to address aortic valve stinosis. She is healthy but struggling with severe fatique And lack of energy. She can't seem to get clarity from the doctor as to whether this has a direct relationship on her fatique. She is willing to undergo the procedure if it will improve her quality of life. Does anyone have any similar experience or insight?
