Heart Healthy Tips & News

  • CABG superior to PCI for treating diabetics with heart disease

    Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) proves superior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for treating multivessel or left main coronary artery disease in diabetic patients, according to a study being published in Annals of Internal Medicine. Diabetes affects up to 400 million persons worldwide, with that number expected to increase significantly over the next two decades. Because patients with diabetes are more than twice as likely to develop cardiovascular disease, the optimal revascularization technique for these patients is an important unsolved question.

  • Dr. Vijay Ramanath performed the very first drug coated balloon angioplasty using the In.PACT Admiral device in Dallas Fort Worth.

    Dr. Vijay Ramanath performed the very first drug coated balloon angioplasty using the In.PACT Admiral device in Dallas Fort Worth. We have an exciting announcement! On Feb 4, 2015, our very own Dr. Vijay Ramanath of HeartPlace Plano West, performed the very first drug coated balloon angioplasty using the In.PACT Admiral device in Dallas Fort Worth at THR Plano. We are excited to be the first practice in the Dallas Fort Worth area to utilize this new cardiac procedure to treat Vascular Disease in Texas. Drug coated balloons are a brand new technology that will revolutionize how we treat arterial blockages in the upper legs. Current therapies including balloon angioplasty and stenting provide suboptimal long-term outcomes. Drug coated balloons provide delivery of a medication to the arterial wall that helps prevents re-narrowing of the previously treated blockage, without leaving any metal scaffolding in the artery which may limit future therapeutic options. Current data shows superiority of drug coated balloon angioplasty compared to conventional balloon angioplasty with regards to success in keeping the artery open post-treatment. Bellow are before and after pictures of this brand new procedure. You can clearly see the amazing results.
