Can a patient suffer from cardiac arrest after undergoing angioplasty?

Tell Dr. Amit Patel, a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Indianexpress.com That the person revived after a Cardiac arrest through immediate medical intervention such as CPR (CPR) He could go into cardiac arrest again.

“In fact, people who have survived arrest once are more likely to have sudden cardiac arrest again,” he said, adding that having sudden cardiac arrest after catheter Depends on the patient’s condition.

“As is the case in Raju SrivastavaIn this case, if he is in ‘cardiogenic shock’, then even after the angioplasty procedure, there will be a 50 percent chance that he will have cardiac arrest. Only in 50 percent of critical patients are there chances of survival. Dr. Patel explained that only in stable patients – or those without comorbidities – catheterization can achieve a good result with very low chances of sudden cardiac arrest.

In addition, Dr. Praveen Kahali, Consultant Cardiologist at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, Mumbai said cardiac arrest is a “sudden and sudden loss of heart function, resulting in loss of consciousness due to disruption of the heart’s electrical system”.

He told this outlet that heart patients develop cardiac arrest in two scenarios: A big heart attack While the heart function is normal, or due to a blockage in the heart.

“Patients who have undergone angioplasty or Bypass surgery For heart blocks, you can experience cardiac arrest due to the frequent occurrence of the block or the poor pumping of the heart. A heart that shows less than 35-40 percent pumping capacity has a 10-15 percent chance of cardiac arrest. This is due to the presence of dead tissue causing electrical disturbances and sudden cardiac death. He explained that even after angioplasty and surgery, poor heart pumping and sudden heart attack can increase the risk of sudden cardiac death.

What is a catheter and when is it required?

As mentioned earlier, the comedian underwent a procedure called ‘Angioplasty’ which, according to Dr. Anish Chandarana, Interventional Cardiologist at Marengo CMS Hospital, is a procedure performed to widen the opening of blood vessels or arteries that have become narrowed or blocked by plaque. , to enable normal blood flow in the heart.

When is it required? “When a patient has a severe heart attack or severe angina pain during physical activity – and collapses – an angioplasty should be performed. If there are large blocks in the arteries of the heart that obstruct the normal flow of blood, and the patient’s anatomy is appropriate for the operation, it is done,” he said. performed”.

Dr Chandarana added that normally, if a patient has a planned (non-emergency) coronary angioplasty, they can go back to work after a week. In the case of emergency angioplasty after a Heart attackIt may take several weeks or months before the patient fully recovers.

He agreed that if the patient’s index was recorded as “severe heart muscle disease, or an acute heart attack that results in severe damage to the heart, it can lead to death.”

“Even after angioplasty, there may be re-narrowing of the artery, which can lead to severe cardiac arrest again leading to fatal results.”

He concluded with a warning, explaining that a heart attack patient could be saved during the “golden hour” period of one hour if he was taken to hospital.

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart rhythm is abnormal (Arrhythmia) and your heart’s electrical system is not working properly. The system controls your heart rate and rhythm. Dr Chandarana said cardiac arrest gives a person no time to survive and is 92 to 95 per cent fatal.
