Since the last couple of years, has appeared on the map of India as one ofthe fastest growing cities. With the high paced life, comes many challenges and stress. This has given birth to a multitude of diseases related to heart. The 

Cardiologists

 are of the view that in the past decade the rate of heart diseases has grown to almost double that it was. We talked to some of the 

best heart specialists

 and they were able to provide us with an update on as to what kind of heart diseases were on a rise.

Restrictive Cardiomyopathy is one of the rarest heart conditions in which the walls of the ventricles tend to become rigid and lack the flexibility which is needed by the heart to extend. This leads to the loss of the heart to pump the blood properly and leads to heart failure. Doctors dealing with 

Restrictive Cardiomyopathy treatment 

are of the view that though the treatment of the condition is quite difficult, they focus on working on the cause behind this disease. Most often, the doctors recommend major lifestyle changes for the patients along with medications in order to deal with heart failure. 

Another common condition affecting a large number of people is the hole in the heart or Atrial Septal Defects (ASD). Though there is no signs or symptoms related to this disease, a person might experience signs such as tiredness, shortness of breath, buildup of blood in the lungs and swelling around the ankles. Doctors dealing with 

Hole in the heart treatment and surgery

 are of the view that a catheter or a surgical procedure maybe needed in order to close the hole. Apart from that, surgery may also be needed in order to cover the defect with a special patch that can cover the hole in the heart.

Cardiologists

also rate Hereditary Angioedema as one of the major diseases affecting people. Though this is a rare disease, it causes serious damage to the immune system. The disease is hereditary in nature and passes from one generation to the other. Some of the majorly known symptoms of the disease are swelling – around the face and the airways along with the abdominal cramping. Doctors specializing in

Hereditary Angioedema Treatment

 are of the view that one of the most effective ways to treat the condition is by using the C1 Inhibitor Concentrate. A newer version of the medicine, known as Ecallantide may also be used. Androgen medications such as Danazol can also be used in order to lessen the frequency and the severity of the attacks. Pain relief and other fluids can also be given to the patient via an IV Line.

Coronary Artery Disease affects a large portion of population across India. People above the age of 40 years are more prone to suffer from this condition. The

Heart Specialist Doctors for Coronary Artery Treatment

 are of the view that Coronary Artery Disease can be treated with a combination of lifestyle changes, drugs as well as medical procedures. Drugs such as Cholesterol modifying medications, Aspirin, Beta Blockers, Nitroglycerin and Angiotensin – converting enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors and Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARB’s) can be used effectively in treating Coronary Artery Disease.

Apart from these, the 

Cardiologists dealing with Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura Treatment

are of the view that though the disease is fatal and can cause a lasting damage – such as brain damage or stroke if it is not treated in the right way. In most cases, doctors recommend patients to go in for Plasma Therapy for the treatment of the condition. For the treatment of the condition with Plasma Therapy, the doctors can introduce:

  1. Fresh frozen plasma in the body for patients who have inherited the disease
  2. Plasma exchange therapy for people who have acquired the disease from another source

Plasma Therapy is a lifesaving procedure for patients suffering from TTP. This procedure helps to remove the antibodies from the blood that are known to damage the ADAMTS13 enzymes in the body. This procedure is done as soon as the condition is diagnosed in the patients. Certain medications such as Glucocorticoids, Vincristine, Rituximab and Cyclosproine A can also be used for the treatment of this condition.

With an increase in the number of heart patients across India, Cardiologists are able to provide a valuable insight for the people in general. They are of an option that if lifestyle changes are implemented on an everyday basis along with changes in the diet, weight loss and exercising every day, the rate of developing heart diseases can be decreased by 40%. Not only that,

the best heart specialists

 also recommend that if you develop symptoms such as shortness of breath or fatigue, you should check in with the doctor for immediate detection and prevention of the condition.
