Myocardial Infarction

A healthy heart with all three coronary arteries working fine.  For most, I think there are only 2 main arteries.  This heart must belong to someone special. 

Myocardial Infarction (MI), otherwise commonly known as a heart attack, is caused by plaque build up in the arteries of the heart.  The plaque blocks blood flow to the rest of the heart causing all sorts of problems.    

Angioplasty and stenting is a process that tries to dislodge the plaque build up and permanently place a stent to the affected area to prevent the same area from narrowing again.  There by increasing blood flow to other parts of the heart again. 

Know more by watching this video.  The Angioplasty procedure undoubtedly has been brought to the limelight when Eraserheads lead vocalist Ely Buendia underwent the procedure thrice in recent years (2007 and 2008).

  1. oh no, who's that? anyway, he/she underwent angioplasty na?

    read this... or

    my dad takes that and he's an advocate with that. there's an alternative doc that prescribes that here, i can refer you. The science behind it is to strengthen the artery to prevent future blocks since the angio doesn't really cure it, it just stretch the artery walls to release what's blocked, so it can happen again. Which makes sense.


Thank you.
