Often Causes Death, Here’s the Danger of Coronary Heart Disease and Heart Attack

Merdeka.com – The name coronary heart disease and heart attack may have been heard by many people. Not a few also know, if the disease can cause death. However, how aware of the dangers of this disease? Maybe only a handful of people really understand it.

dr. Kabul Priyantoro, SpJP (K), FIHA from EMC Hospital Cikarang explained that coronary heart disease manifested as a heart attack is the main cause of death in the productive age group. Based on RISKESDAS (Basic Health Research) data, coronary heart disease is included in the top five causes of death in Indonesia.

The Dangers of a Heart Attack that Must Be Recognized


Talking about the dangers of a heart attack that must be recognized, dr. Kabul revealed that acute myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation (IMA-EST) or heart attack was defined as the onset of symptoms and signs of ischemia of cardiac muscle tissue acutely in the form of chest pain typical of infarction accompanied by changes in electrocardiographic (ECG) images in the form of persistent ST-segment elevation. New left bundle branch block (LBBB), or the formation of a pathological Q wave, accompanied by signs of cardiac muscle cell damage such as an increase or decrease in troponin biomarker levels at least above the 99th percentile of the top reference value.

A heart attack is evidenced by imaging techniques in the form of loss of new heart muscle cell tissue marked by changes in regional movement of the heart muscle, the presence of a thrombus in the coronary arteries detected by angiography or autopsy. In general, patients with AMI-EST experience total blockage of the epicardial coronary arteries. The goal of treatment in this group of cases is to quickly restore coronary blood flow so that distal blood flow can return to normal by mechanical reperfusion in the form of primary percutaneous coronary intervention (IKPP) or by pharmaco-reperfusion, namely fibrinolytic.

Can Be Overcome With The Installation Of A Heart Ring

Although deadly, coronary heart disease and heart attacks can be overcome with the installation of a heart ring. dr. Kabul explained that primary percutaneous coronary intervention (IKPP) or cardiac ring is the main choice of mechanical revascularization therapy in treating patients with acute myocardial infarction with ST-segment elevation (AMI-EST) or cardiac arrest. The mortality rate for AMI-EST patients in the world shows a decrease in line with the development of modern medicine, and the increasing use of IKPP or cardiac rings.

Along with the existence of national health insurance services (JKN) and other health insurance, the installation of an emergency heart ring or primary percutaneous coronary intervention (IKPP), has become a common thing in Indonesia. At EMC Healthcare, percutaneous coronary intervention (Heart Ring) services are available. Where patients who come to the EMC Hospital will be treated directly by a Cardiologist and Interventional Cardiologist Consultant, one of them is dr. Kabul Priyantoro, Sp.JP(K), FIHA who practices at EMC Hospital Cikarang.
