Mr. Shashikant Gujarati
A 58 years old male patient was admitted in hospital for complaints of breathlessness, cough and chest discomfort since 2 days in Mahavir Hospital at Surat. He was diagnosed as heart failure with known case of hypertension and diabetes mellitus type 2. On cath. Coronary Angiography it found that patient was suffering from Tripple Vessel Disease and on Cardiac MRI his ejection fraction was decreased to 15% so he was advised for surgical bypass. On history it was found that patient had done stenting in past for blockage in LAD post MI in 2015. This stent was completely blocked this time, so cardiologist offered him surgical bypass as first option and EECP as second option. As patient’s son selected that they will go with EECP treatment as their first choice. As per our standard protocol he was advised by our consultant at Saaol Heart Centre at Surat. As patient was very anxious about result of EECP, though he started treatment and in between the half way of treatment he decided to recheck pumping power of his heart (LVEF) which for his surprise was increased to 40%. He also adopted our lifestyle modification program. Now patient free from chest pain and difficulty in breathing on exertion and feels much more energetic than before.
