Angina pectoris or stable angina is temporary chest pain that occurs when the heart muscle needs more blood than it is getting as a result of decreased blood flow, which usually develops during physical activity or strong emotions. Angina pectoris may be treated with medications, angioplasty, and stenting, or coronary bypass surgery. The goal of angina pectoris treatment is to reduce the severity and frequency of the symptoms, as well as to lower the risk of heart attack and death.
One of the first steps to treat angina pectoris is with medication, your doctor may give you nitrates, clot-preventing drugs, statins, aspirin, calcium channel blockers, blood pressure-lowering medications, or beta-blockers. In some cases, your surgeon may suggest surgery, such as angioplasty (to insert a tiny balloon into your narrowed artery and place a stent to keep the artery open) or coronary artery bypass surgery (using a vein or artery from another part of your body to bypass a narrowed or blocked artery). Both of these procedures may be performed under general anesthetic.
If you undergo surgery, you may need to stay in the hospital for about a week. After you are discharged, you will need to stay in Ponhea Lueu for 7 to 14 additional days or until your surgeon allows you to fly home. During your stay in the country, you will attend scheduled follow-up checkups.
The recovery period can be different for everyone depending on your overall health before the treatment and the type of treatment you have. Some people may be able to gradually return to their normal activities within a week after angioplasty, while others need to wait for about two weeks. If you have coronary artery bypass surgery, the total recovery time until you can go back to your normal activities may take up to 12 weeks, but you should be able to return to work within 6 weeks if your job is not physically demanding.
If you undergo surgery, your surgeon will give you post-operative instructions, which may include exercise, diet, wound care, and restrictions. Changing your lifestyle to become healthier is very important after treatment. Make sure to eat a healthy diet, avoid smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke, maintain a healthy weight, exercise regularly, and limit your alcohol consumption.
Treatment for angina pectoris is generally safe and highly successful. Both medication and surgery may have some side effects and risks, such as swelling, bleeding, blood clots, wound infection, irregular heartbeat, kidney problems, pneumonia, breathing problems, and stroke.
If your symptoms are not severe, your doctor may ask you to simply change your lifestyle. If you do need treatment, it is best to talk to your doctor about the alternatives for your specific condition.
Before angina pectoris treatment, you may have symptoms like nausea, dizziness, sweating, fatigue, and chest pain that stops you from enjoying your life and performing your day to day activities. After treatment, you may be cured and you should not feel any symptoms.
