We have talked about the damage of hypertension to cerebral vessels and kidneys in previous articles. In this article, we will talk about the third complication of hypertension-heart damage. Why is hypertension [sad]? After hypertension occurs, There are mainly two kinds of [sad] conditions in the cardiovascular system: 1. After left ventricular hypertrophy and hypertension occur, When the heart contracts, In order to inject blood into the surrounding blood vessels, The pressure is greater than normal blood pressure. If we don’t try every means to help the heart [lighten the burden], The heart can only [find another way] to make itself [strong], Make yourself less struggling when ejecting blood. Medically, we call this pathological change [left ventricular hypertrophy]. This is a compensatory mechanism of heart muscles. Not all [strength] is a good thing. Left ventricular hypertrophy is not what doctors want to see. Weightlifters’ muscle exercise is stretched and relaxed. There is a detailed plan and a combination of work and rest. This is not the case with heart [weightlifting exercise]. As long as the heart is beating, This [weightlifting exercise] is going on, [The heart is full of flesh], Long-term overwork will one day make the heart too tired to compensate. Heart failure. So, When assessing the degree of heart damage caused by hypertension, We will also do an ultrasound on the heart, Look at the size of the heart and the thickness of the left ventricle. 2. Coronary artery stenosis or obstruction we already know. Hypertension is a promoter of atherosclerosis. Coronary arteries run on the surface of the heart, providing oxygen and nutrition for the heart to maintain its vitality. When atherosclerosis occurs in coronary arteries, coronary arteries will stenosis or blockage, angina pectoris, myocardial infarction and even sudden death. How to prevent [sadness]? Now that we know, If the problem of high blood pressure [sadness] is left unchecked, There can be serious consequences. To deal with it reasonably, Before and after [the grief] happens, Take appropriate measures. 1. Control blood pressure, Preventing heart failure Left ventricular hypertrophy is a change that the heart makes when it has to, To block the progression of left ventricular hypertrophy, The best way is still to keep the blood pressure within the ideal range. Some antihypertensive drugs such as ACEI/ARb (e.g.: XX Pully, XX Sartan), receptor blocker (XX Lolol), It can improve myocardial remodeling, Helps prevent the progression of left ventricular hypertrophy. 2. Active Treatment of Coronary Heart Disease If you suffer from coronary heart disease, Level 2 prevention must be carried out under the guidance of doctors. Prevent further cardiovascular events. The heart is an important organ of the human body. If myocardial infarction occurs, Emergency treatment is required immediately. There are two options: thrombolysis and interventional therapy: Thrombolysis refers to the use of drugs to dissolve thrombosis blocked in coronary arteries. Restore blood supply, Prevent myocardial necrosis. Interventional therapy refers to the detection of coronary artery stenosis through peripheral artery delivery guidewire. And use the stent to spread the narrow part, Realize vascular recanalization. If the stenotic part of the coronary artery is too long and there are too many diseased blood vessels to be treated by interventional methods, it is necessary to seek surgical help. A method called [bypass] is used to select small blood vessels from other parts of the human body to bypass the stenotic coronary artery and create other pathways to provide blood supply to the heart.
