30% of stroke are due to cardiac arrhythmias,
Scientific secretariat of 21st International Congress of Cardiovascular Updates: 30% of stroke are due to cardiac arrhythmias, success rate of 80% in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias with new methods.
Dr. Massoud Eslami, on the eve of 21st International Congress of Cardiovascular Updates, said: "The congress will be held from 20-23 August, and the latest scientific advances in diagnosis and treatment as well as the prevention of coronary artery disease will be discussed.
Cardiovascular disease, cardiac arrhythmias, cardiovascular nursing, and new cardiovascular practices are the issues to be demonstrated with the presence of prominent scholars at this year’s event.
One of the most important cardiovascular diseases, cardiac arrhythmias, occur due to damage to the heart and generally divided into low and high risk categories.
He states: "Atrial arrhythmia is one of the main cardiovascular problems causing heart rate irregularities that due to the heart’s interrupted electrical system and causes beats to be higher than 150 per minute, that with age the risk of diseases also rises.
Referring to the fact that people over 75 years of age have an estimated 10% raised heart rate irregularity, Dr Eslami said: In addition to heart palpitations, heart rate abnormalities and stroke are the main topics of this congress. Stroke is one of the most common causes of atrial fibrillation, clot in the atrium that enters the bloodstream and eventually causes stroke.
Scientific secretariat of 21st International Congress of Cardiovascular Updates, argued that 30% of strokes are due to irregular heartbeats or so-called atrial fibrillation that increases with the higher the age. The pharmaceutical and non-pharmacological methods will be further considered as treatment options; if pharmaceutical solutions do not work, non-pharmacological treatments are chosen.
Anti-clotting and anticoagulant drugs such as warfarin have been used for patients with atrial fibrilation, which now other alternative drugs are also available on the market. However, if the person does not respond to the drug, an ablation technique is used in the angiography room through the leg valves, a 3D mapping of the heart valve is done and arrhythmia is identified. Then the problem would be dissolved by radio waves, which has been nowadays 70 to 80 percent successful.
