Intervention is essential at the initial stage to save lives which is why we have compiled a comprehensive guide on the causes and treatments of cardiac disorders.

The process of a cardiac arrest  

Unhealthy eating habits and increased stress levels take some time to reach the maximum limit leading to heart disease or heart failure. When a person's coronary arteries are blocked, the blood flow gets disrupted. The deposit of fat and cholesterol further creates plaques in the blood vessels. The plaques rupture if there are excessive deposits and form a blood clot in the blood vessels. Blocked arteries may lead to heart attack, if not treated in time.

Treatment methods

Angioplasty, and open heart surgery are well-known treatment alternatives. Doctors use a method called angiography to study the blood vessels and understand the condition of the heart. If a portion of the blood vessels is blocked, it is widened by the process of angioplasty. In the case of angioplasty, a stent is inserted into the artery, and a balloon is used to widen the space inside the artery where there is a blockage. Angioplasty is required if the blockage is greater than 50%. If you have various blocked arteries or if one of your larger arteries is blocked, you must opt for bypass surgery.

Cost of the treatments

The average cost of Angioplasty in India is between Rs 1,20,000 and Rs 1,60,000. However, the treatment and cost depend on the condition of the patient and the number of blockages in the blood vessels.
