Coronary Disease Symptoms

Typically, angina is a symptom of cardiac muscle ischemia that occurs with increased oxygen demand. It is generally defined as a feeling of pressure on the chest wall, which occurs in activities or situations that increase myocardial oxygen demand. Not all patients have chest pain. Some may only have pain on the neck, jaw, ear, arm or stomach. Other symptoms, such as difficulty breathing and fatigue, may occur. Recognizing angina for the first time can be difficult because the symptoms often resemble other diseases (indigestion, anxiety). There may be a patient who does not have pain, only breathing difficulty, weakness, nausea and vomiting, sweating.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Today, advances in the diagnosis of both congenital and acquired heart diseases and their treatment are carried out successfully. As a result of these advances, it has become clear whether the baby has a heart disease before it is born. From the fifth month of pregnancy, the baby's heart can be visualized by fetal echocardiography. Such congenital anomalies can be detected immediately by making routine examinations and examinations performed immediately after birth. If urgent intervention is required, the patient can be operated immediately, even for 1 day. At the same time, diagnostic and surgical approaches have been modernized in diseases of the vascular and valve systems of the heart.
