Heart blockage can be cleared with this surgery that is best suggested by Doctors.
Pulmonary Endarterectomy (PEA, also known as PTE) is a surgical operation to remove old blood clots from the pulmonary arteries in the lungs (chronic pulmonary embolism). Only few people with pulmonary hypertension have blockages caused by blood clots. It is also possible that people with pulmonary hypertension may have blockages that are not appropriate for pulmonary endarterectomy. This procedure is technically very complicated as it is very hard to get access to the arteries of the lungs. So it is very important to thoroughly evaluate the patient before undergoing this surgery. Pulmonary endarterectomy is probably the finest treatment for patients suffering from chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. It may be a complete cure in some patients as it can restore almost normal blood flow to the lungs.
Endarterectomy procedure is a major operation involving a ‘heart-lung bypass’ machine. During the surgery, the surgeon opens the pulmonary arteries and removes the artery lining to clear the obstructions. Patients who suffer from pulmonary hypertension might need to take pulmonary hypertension drug therapy before undergoing surgery. All those who have undergone pulmonary endarterectomy operation will need to have warfarin for the rest of the entire life so as to prevent clots from coming back.
Therefore in order to rectify the complications of the heart, Carotid artery endarterectomy is performed, which in turn restores proper blood flow to the brain.
Carotid endarterectomy procedure is done in order to remove the unwanted plague or particles that block the blood flow to the brain. Once the particles are removed, the artery is then closed.
Pulmonary endarterectomy is a high-risk surgery. However, if the surgery is a success it can improve the symptoms and ensure a better quality of life. But, the risk factor of the operation is always on the higher side. A successful surgery can completely change a person’s life even though some people might need lifelong treatment.
