Nizamabad, November 6th, 2020: Doctors at Medicover Hospitals in Nizamabad save life of a 19-year-old student who suffered ‘heart attack’ at an unusually young age by performing thrombolysisand angioplasty to insert a drug-eluting coronary stent into the victim. The increase in young people having heart attacks is dramatically on the rise, andthe main reason is due to poor lifestyle choices such as lack of exercise and a bad diet.

 

A resident of Perkit near Armoor town in Nizamabad district, Mr. G Mahesh, who completed Intermediate (Plus 2) earlier this year, was brought to Medicover Hospital on October 29th after he complained of chest pain at home.The Emergency team at the hospital immediately started to ascertain the condition, and on noticing the boy sufferedmyocardial infarction (a condition popularly known as heart attack), the team also assessed the reasons for him to suffer this at such a young age. Thorough investigations and assessment of his family background revealed that in the past, the victim’s father too suffered heart attack twice at a young age of 33& 34 years and survived after a stent was inserted each time.

 

Commenting on the case and reasons, Dr. Anand Raj, Consultant Cardiologist, Medicover Hospitals said, “Witnessing heart attack cases among such young people is disturbing! In the case of Mahesh, we are assessing ‘hereditary’ causes for myocardial infarction; but many young people suffer similarly due to lack of regular physical exercise and poor lifestyle choices including unhealthy dietary practices. In these fast-paced times, when all of us are exposed to pollution and suffer from work-related stress, it is important we take time off to keep our body and mind in better shape to avoid such incidents.”

 

Mahesh was put through percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), a minimally invasive procedure to open the blocked coronary arteries; and this processfacilitates blood to circulate unobstructed to the heart muscle. Performing PTCA on such young patients is a rarity, but the victims condition necessitated the process. With the patient condition improving greatly, he was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, November 4th, and is advised to undergo regular check-up, along with following a healthy daily routine.

 

Expressing his gratitude towards Medicover Hospitals and Dr. Anand Raj, the boy’s father G Ramesh said, “I consulted Dr. Anand Raj once in the past, and when my son had to be taken to a bigger medical facility for care, Dr. Anand and Medicover Hospitals were obvious choice. I am grateful to the entire team at the hospital because of whom my son is alive today and is back with us, hale and hearty!”

 

Obesity among youngsters, poor diet, early Type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heavy smoking, and family history of cardiovascular disease are major causes for heart attacks even among those aged below the high-risk category. It is strongly recommended that people aged 20 to 39 years even without hereditary risks have their cardiovascular health assessed every three to four years to rule-out potential threats.
