Nowadays, people’s living standards have improved. They have cars to go out and meat to eat. However, unconsciously, high blood pressure, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and other [rich diseases] also follow, and these diseases are closely related to vascular health. If [rich diseases] are not well controlled, various vascular blockages may occur.
What if unfortunately the blood vessel is blocked? Is there a simple and down-to-earth way to what?
Different vascular blockages, different diseases
Hemiplegia, illegible speech and even loss of mobility may occur after stroke, and bedridden may occur.
Cardiac blood vessels are blocked-myocardial infarction
If the blockage is not serious, it may only affect the pumping ability of the heart, and serious myocardial infarction can kill people at any time.
The blood vessels on the foot are blocked-arteriosclerosis occlusion, venous thrombosis
Severe arterial blockage may lead to ischemia and necrosis of legs and feet and even amputation. However, if venous thrombosis falls off and enters pulmonary vessels, it may lead to pulmonary embolism.
The blood vessels in the lungs are blocked-pulmonary embolism
Pulmonary embolism is usually very urgent. When blood vessels are blocked much more, people may suffocate and die.
Those secrets of blood vessels that harm people but do not pay for their lives.
Most of the time, we all hope that there are some simple and easy treatment methods with good curative effect that can pass through blood vessels, but it often backfires.
1. Stroke self-help prick fingers? To the utmost absurdity
[Low threshold, small investment, high return and local materials] are often the common characteristics of all kinds of pseudo-health knowledge. Some people say that this is the treatment method of traditional Chinese medicine, but in fact traditional Chinese medicine does not think that [pricking fingers can cure stroke].
2. Pat your arm to save myocardial infarction? It’s just a joke
I really don’t know if this is a clever trick with that finger. What do they think of what?
3. Beat and cure diseases? Small cardiopulmonary embolism
If the swelling of the lower limbs is caused by the blockage of blood vessels in the thighs, the thrombus inside will be squeezed out with one pat and one pinch… Isn’t it good to squeeze out thrombosis?
Of course not. The nightmare just began. After the thrombus fell down, it drifted away along the blood flow. This walk could not be traced back. The next stop was the lung, which stayed in the pulmonary blood vessels. The blockage of pulmonary blood vessels was even more fatal.
To save blood vessels, doctors have [three axes]
1. Let the blockage disappear-anticoagulation, thrombolysis and thrombectomy
What blocks blood vessels is basically related to blood coagulation.
Anticoagulation can make thrombus dissolve faster. Thrombolytic drugs act faster. To remove an embolus is to insert a needle into a blood vessel, extend a small tube from the body surface along the blood vessel to the blockage, and remove the embolus. This is called interventional surgery.
STEP 2 Stretch the narrow blood vessels
This is interventional surgery, which is usually performed at the same time as embolus removal. After embolus removal, slender balloons or stents that can be folded like umbrellas are sent to the blocked part through pipelines, and then opened like umbrellas to open blood vessels.
The difference between the balloon and the stent is that the balloon opens the blood vessel and can be removed without leaving it in the blood vessel (in Guangdong and Hong Kong, this operation is called Tong Bo Zi, which is the mixed common name of the Chinese and English of the operation name). The stent needs to remain in the body and continue to open the narrow blood vessel. In order to prevent the recurrence of the disease, some stents are coated with anti-blockage drugs.
Step 3 Connect another blood vessel
This is the ultimate way. In other parts of the body, a less important blood vessel is taken to replace the function of blocking blood vessels, thus establishing a new lifeline.
Prevention is the best cure
There is no denying that thrombolysis, stent, balloon, bypass and other therapies have all played a very good role, but the best treatment is not to save the disease after it occurs.
The best treatment is always prevention.
