Vejthani Hospital Announces ‘Radial Artery Approach’ the New Age of Cardiac Catheterization

BANGKOK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cardiac Catheterization through the wrist (radial artery): an easy and faster way to recovery. A new technique for patients who are afraid of Cardiac Catheterization through the groin area.

Dr.Punkiat Topipat, an Intervention Cardiologist of Vejthani Hospital revealed that in the World Health Organization survey, it showed that the rate of heart diseases and deaths from heart diseases in Thailand is close to the rate of Western and other developed countries. An increase from 0.5 million in 2005 to 0.7 million in 2007 was noted. This could be related to the sedentary way of living, lack of exercise and eating of fat-rich foods as an influence by the western countries. However, some predisposing factors cannot be changed, such as but not limited to, age, gender, Diabetes Mellitus and genetic factors.

Common symptoms of a heart disease include difficulty of breathing, chest pain, dizziness, sweating and tiredness. If you are experienced, you must consult a physician. If the test results show a coronary arteriosclerosis, the doctor would recommend the treatment personalized for each one, depending on the disease and health condition of the patient. Treatment of choice for CAD is Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI); it is done by inserting a balloon and stent through a catheter from the groin area into the blocked artery of the heart and expanding it to allow patent blood flow into the arteries. Also, a coronary artery bypass may be advised if necessary.

Advantages to this method include shorter recovery time (4-8 hours), possible lesser number of days for admission and immediate test results. Patients does not have to lie still in their backs for quite a long time as compared to the cardiac catheterization through the groin, after the procedure, the patient is allowed to sit or stand up.

Dr. Topipat, concluded that heart diseases can be dangerous. He emphasized the need to know the cause, symptoms and effects of the disease. A change to a healthy lifestyle is deemed important to avoid having a heart disease. Vejthani Hospital provides more information that you can talk to doctor online for free.
