Q: 

What Are The Cause And Risk Factors Of Having A Left Anterior Fascicular Block?

A: This is caused by a defect in the anterior half of the bundle. This could be caused by your lifestyle or eating habits. It is associated with hypertensions of the heart. The left anterior fascicular block is caused by defect in the anterior half of the bundle of His. The risk factors are - it is associated with hypertensive heart disease, cardiomyopathies and degenerative fibrotic disease of the cardiac skeleton. It can be seen in some cases of acute myocaridal infarction. This sounds like some sort of artery or nerve blockage. My best guess is this would result in a heart attack if it is an artery that is blocked toward the front of the heart or maybe a stroke. This blockage would be from an accumulation of factors, including poor diet,...


Q: 

What is ischemic heart disease?

A: Caused by cholesterol deposits, which block arteries, ischemic (is-KEY-mic) heart disease, also called coronary artery disease or coronary heart disease, is still the single biggest cause of death in the United States, killing nearly 500,000 Americans each year. An estimated 14 million people in the United States have ischemic heart disease. Of these, as many as 4 million have few or no symptoms and are unaware that they are at risk for angina (angina pectoris), heart attack (myocardial infarction), or sudden death. acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) is a common complication of ischemic heart disease. Over time, the arteries of the heart narrow from a build...


Q: 

What is the difference between a stroke and a heart attack ? Which is more serious ?

A: a stroke is a verry little heart attack sometimes not noticed heart attack, because it can kill muscles in your heart and due to it being most of the time fatal. stroke only impairs movement of what part of your brain has been damaged and or the affected sides of your body. A stroke is either a clot or hemorrhage which causes ischemia ( area which dies due to lack of blood flow) in the brain. A heart attack is a (usually can be other causes) clogged coronary (blood vessel that supplies the heart muscle) artery which causes ischemia in the heart muscle. If there is a big enough area of ischemia the heart can not work. Both CVA (cerebral vascular accident, stroke) and MI (myocardial infarction, heart attack) can cause death. If enough areas...

Q: 

Anyone know what pains that are similar to a heart attack might also be related to (chest, back, jaw pain)?

A: Suggest you go get checked out when the pain is occurring. Could be acid reflux (indigestion). The pain of a heart attack radiates out from the chest through nerves to the head, back, arms...so does pain caused by indigestion. You can also begin to sweat heavily, same as a heart attack. Discuss it with your doctor. I''m surprised it''s not the first thing they mentioned to you when your heart checked out OK. First thing I want to ask is what have you changed in your lifestyle in the last 6 to 9 months? Could this have anything to do with what you ask? Such as physical activity, sleep and dietary habits included. Do you smoke? Cigarettes or marijuana or more? Do you drink alcohol? All of this factors in. You need to be more specific with your question. Thanks. BTW I do hope you have...

Q: 

Pacemaker surgery. How many deaths?

A: No documentation is done/publicized because of security reasons. I would think it would be very low, its not at all like open heart surgery. I have a pacemaker and the surgery was easy, the not putting your arm above your head for 2 weeks not so easy. if I was to quess, not very many. They use a local, not general anesthesia.
