Adult Congenital Heart Disease

Adult congenital heart disease (CHD) includes a population of two types of patients. One with a disease diagnosed during childhood and subsequently treated but need follow-up during adult years. The other category with the disease is diagnosed during adult years due to no show of symptoms. It is basically an abnormality in the structure of the heart that one is born with.

What is heart attack?

Heart attack, medically called myocardial infarction, is a serious heart condition wherein the blood flow to the heart gets blocked. Chest pain due to partial blockage of blood flow, commonly called angina, is a warning sign of a more severe heart attack, if left untreated. Complete blockage of blood flow due to a blood clot may cause serious results, including death.

What is Atrial Fibrillation?

The heart is made up of four chambers, two upper “atria” and the two lower “ventricles”. The heart beats in a rhythmic pattern due to triggering of electrical impulses generated in a bunch of nerve cells called sinoartial (SA) node located in the atrium. These impulses travel to the atrioventricular (AV) node located in the ventricle. An irregular and frequently rapid heart rate is called atrial fibrillation. It occurs due to chaotic electrical signals in the atria, so they quiver. Thus impulses are bombarded to the ventricles and they also may start to beat rapidly. As a result, the heart rhythm becomes fast and irregular. In atrial fibrillation, the heart beat may range from 100 to 175 beats a minute as compared to the normal 60 to 100 beats a minute.

Heart Valve Disease

Heart valve disease is a condition wherein one or more of the heart valves are not working as expected. The human heart has four valves which open and shut in sync with the heart’s rhythm. Heart Valves play a very important role in ensuring blood flows in the correct direction within and out of the heart in order to ensure that the human body receives proper blood supply.
The four valves of the heart are Aortic Valve, Mitral Valve, Pulmonary Valve, and Tricuspid Valve. Heart valve diseases are not uncommon and are seen equally in children, adults and the elderly. The values help in one-way blood flow through your heart. The heart ensures that the blood flows in the forward direction only.
Different valve diseases are Valvular Stenosis, Valvular Insufficiency, and Congenital Valve Disease.

Hypertensive Heart Disease

High blood pressure or hypertension is a common heart condition which features high pressure of the blood on artery walls. Blood pressure in the arteries is determined by two factors, the amount of blood the heart pumps, and the amount of resistance in the arteries. Significantly, there may be hypertension without any symptoms. Uncontrolled high blood pressure may have a disastrous fall-out as heart attack and stroke.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is a condition where the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart are damaged. Accumulation of plaque or cholesterol deposits is considered as the primary cause of coronary artery disease. The plaque build-up in the arteries decreases the blood flow to the heart. This condition leads to chest pain (angina). The condition where there is complete blockage of the artery may lead to heart attack. As it is said, prevention is better than cure, a healthy lifestyle can help to prevent coronary artery disease.

Enlarged Heart

Enlarged heart condition is also called as Cardiomegaly, which is not a disease but a signal for a possible disorder or health issue. An x-ray of the heart reveals a change in the shape of the heart, a little oversize than normal. A few other tests are also prescribed to study the heart’s enlargement. A heart may be swollen or enlarged due to medical conditions viz. weak heart valve problem and other heart conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions:

    A heart specialist or cardiologist is a physician who can diagnose and treat conditions related to the heart.

    You can consult a heart specialist if your primary doctor refers you because of symptoms such as shortness of breath, breathlessness, chest pain, etc.

    During your first visit, the heart specialist will evaluate your medical history and risk factors for developing cardiac conditions. You may undergo a cardiovascular examination. Your heart rate, blood pressure, and electrocardiogram, echo, TMT may be performed.

    A coronary angiogram is a test that uses X-rays to show how well your blood is moving in your heart’s arteries (coronary arteries), and to look for clogs in them. Your coronary arteries are important because they get blood to your heart’s muscle. A blocked coronary artery can lead to a heart attack, which is when the heart muscle dies.

    A coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (the main blood vessels supplying the heart).
    The term "angioplasty" means using a balloon to stretch open a narrowed or blocked artery. However, most modern angioplasty procedures also involve inserting a short wire mesh tube, called a stent, into the artery during the procedure. The stent is left in place permanently to allow blood to flow more freely.
    Coronary angioplasty is sometimes known as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). The combination of coronary angioplasty with stenting is usually referred to as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
