The conventional methods of heart surgeries are currently being challenged by a new federal study. Many of the dangerous operations like the bypasses are found to be less beneficial in reducing the risks of heart attacks. The expensive traditional surgeries are unwarranted in terms of long-term benefits. The drug therapy is found to be enough as the people having undergone surgeries are also at the same risk of having a heart attack like the ones who have not had any surgery. Many people found the surgeries to be helpful for the people having chest pain or angina. According to Dr. Glenn Levine from Baylor College of Medicine, the use of stents and bypasses are found to be increasing. The new study named Ischemia is found to focus on the overuse of traditional cardiac operations.
The stents and bypasses are found to be life-saving for the people having severe chest pain and blockages. The new study suggests that it is important to understand heart diseases first before starting any medical therapy. The entire arterial system needs to be cured instead of just targeting the narrowed areas which the stents and bypasses work on. According to Dr. David Maron from Stanford University, the people having chest pain and who have not had angina in the last few months do not have to go through the invasive strategy.
Likewise, recently a team from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found a cheap drug that is usually used for centuries to treat gout could possibly help keep the heart attack survivors safe from future heart crises. The drug named colchicine was found to help reduce heart attack chances in the survivors by almost 34%. The management of inflammation in the chest using the drug is a new application for the generic drug.
