Reduced Anticoagulation for a Mechanical Heart Valve
Просмотров: 166 American College of Cardiology Video Archive 2
When i had my heart operation done about 10 years ago, i had a st judes mechanical valve replacement, i was told to try and avoid food high in vitamin K because it will have an effect on my INR levels. I now eat leafy green vegetables all the time i just make sure i eat them on a regular basis to help keep my levels in the same range all the time. I test my own INR about every 2 weeks and my levels stay pretty much within the correct range. To keep fit and healthy you need to have a good healthy balanced diet and that should also include leafy green vegetables. If you have any worries or questions about your levels or anything to do with you new valve replacement you should consult your own doctor for the best advice. I'm now fitter than i have been in years and do a lot of cycling and some weight training, so you don't have to give up everything in life just because you've had open heart surgery. You should consult your Doctor before doing any strenuous exercise or workout, if you have any dizziness or pain you should stop immediately, you do this workout at your own risk. Please be reminded i am not a personal trainer this is just my workout routine you should consult a personal trainer to obtain a proper workout for what you want to achieve.

The Boston Scientific Stroke-Bleed Risks Calculator will help you easily balance the risk of stroke against the risk of bleeding prior to decide the best treatment option for your AF patients; and consider the LAAC therapy for your AF patients who are at high risk of stroke & bleeding. In addition to the calculator, the App contains a patient profiles tab with several medical profiles giving examples of patients who might benefit from LAAC with the WATCHMAN device as an alternative to OAC.

Dabigatran versus Warfarin in patients with mechanical heart valves.
Просмотров: 280 Andrea Jaramillo Bajaña
Specialist Dr John Worthington explains that many medical procedures don't require you to stop taking warfarin beforehand (e.g. dental procedures, skin cancer removal). If you do stop warfarin, another type of anticoagulant should be used. "The shorter the time without an anticoagulant, the safer you are" says Dr Worthington.

Cardiac surgeons and interventionalists at Penn Heart and Vascular are performing aortic valve repair in patients younger than 50 years of age. Wing to the difficulty of AV repair, these patients would formerly have received AV replacement with mechanical or bioprosthetic valves. Aortic valve repair and replacement are often performed to address bicuspid aortic valve disease with dilated aortic annulus, conjoined cusp prolapse or valve cusp perforation in the absence of stenosis. Aortic valve replacement is identified with a number of concerns, including the need for life-long anticoagulation therapy, an elevated risk of infection, chronic pain and the potential for the artificial valve to fail with time. Aortic valve repair has been demonstrated to have a number of advantages by comparison to valve replacement. Perhaps most prominent among these is that the native heart valve—with all of its hemodynamic benefits—is preserved. This means that the valve can be repaired again, if need be, or replaced at a later time. The durability of AV repair is comparable to that of replacement; moreover valve repairs are associated with a lower rate of infection, and preclude the need for blood thinning medications. For younger patients, the durability of valve repair and the lack of blood thinner therapy are key advantages. Blood thinners must be used with artificial valves to avoid the risk of blood clots and stroke, but are notorious for their risks, side effects and potential for interaction with foods with other drugs. Patients may also have contraindications to anticoagulation that prevent the use of these drugs.

Steve from Utah is calling in to talk about his father who is on Coumadin who has had several heart surgeries, he has an artificial valve that is mechanical and the doctors tell him that he has to take Coumadin every day. The MDs have told his father that if he takes the nutrients he will have complications. Dr. G explains that this is where the MDs are wrong and that the MDs know nothing about medical nutrition. As a matter of fact they know nothing about nutrition. Fortunately there are some places such as Washington state that the MDs and the Naturopathic doctors are working together and forwarding the practice of good clinical medicine. Most MDs unfortunately don't know about applied holistic medical nutrition and the MDs have no understanding whatsoever of what Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9 can do or understand the essential nutrients that the body needs. Trying to convince the MDs that Steve's father is a candidate for medical nutrition is like trying to convince a communist that people should be allowed to vote. Medical nutrition to an MD is just not in their world view, so Steve's father is up against a rock and a hard place. Doctor G suggests giving Steve's father the appropriate nutritional supplements by body weight each month and suggests not telling anyone that he is taking these, then see if his blood tests start to normalize. If his blood tests start to normalize they should start taking him off of the Coumadin and any other kind of drugs that he is on. Dr. G talks about the commander who he had on the show earlier and when he first met the commander he was over 300 pounds and on more Coumadin that a person should be able to tolerate. He has now lost over 100 pounds, he had over 17 or 18 blood clots, they are now all gone, his blood sugar has normalized, and he is now off of the Coumadin. He did it all in a step down process while he was replacing the essential nutrients that his body had lost. Because the MDs have no practical experience in this that are going to tell you that Vitamin K is dangerous and this that in every other thing they can think of because they don't know anything about medical nutrition. It's not the MDs fall but they just don't know that they are practicing old outdated medicine. Steve says that the real problem is that his father believes what the MDs are telling him. Dr. G says there is nothing you can do if that's what he believes. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink it. An option that Steve might have is to hook him up with a couple of bottles of plant minerals, this will give him about 66% of his nutrient needs. Often times when we can get them just on the plant minerals the folks will feel better and this will give a foot in the door to show them the other options to nutrify the body.

Aortic valve replacement is a procedure in which a patient's failing aortic valve is replaced with an artificial heart valve. The aortic valve can be affected by a range of diseases; the valve can either become leaky (aortic insufficiency / regurgitation) or partially blocked (aortic stenosis). Current aortic valve replacement approaches include open heart surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) and minimally invasive, catheter-based (percutaneous) aortic valve replacement. A catheter-based approach (percutaneous aortic valve replacement or PAVR) may eliminate the need for open heart surgery in select groups of patients. As of October 2012, in the USA there is an FDA-approved percutaneously implantable aortic valve system for high surgical risk and inoperable patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis with other catheter-based devices on trial use.

Obesity is tied to many health issues, and new evidence suggests that obese patients may face another health risk when taking a common blood thinner. Obesity may make patients more prone to bleeding problems while taking warfarin (brand name Coumadin), a new study found. Many patients are given warfarin after developing a blood clot or related condition, such as a heart attack. Warfarin thins the blood so it is less likely to clot. Bleeding is a commonly reported side effect of this medication.

Atrial flutter (AFL) is an abnormal heart rhythm that occurs in the atria of the heart. When it first occurs, it is usually associated with a fast heart rate or tachycardia (beats over 100 per minute), and falls into the category of supra-ventricular tachycardias. While this rhythm occurs most often in individuals with cardiovascular disease (e.g. hypertension, coronary artery disease, and cardiomyopathy) and diabetes, it may occur spontaneously in people with otherwise normal hearts. It is typically not a stable rhythm, and frequently degenerates into atrial fibrillation (AF). However, it does rarely persist for months to years. Atrial flutter was first identified as an independent medical condition in 1920 by the British physician Sir Thomas Lewis (1881–1945) and colleagues. This video is targeted to blind users.
