Major insurance company BUPA recently invited Dr Chai to review their health information page on coronary artery disease. In the era of information overload on social media and on the Internet, it is increasingly important that you have up-to-date expert health information you can trust.
In this article, Dr Chai will discuss the causes of coronary artery disease including its risk factors, such as untreated high blood pressure, high cholesterol level in the blood, diabetes mellitus, as well as cigarette smoking and other lifestyle factors. He will also explain the many options we have to investigate possible coronary artery disease including cardiac CT coronary angiogram, stress perfusion imaging, and invasive coronary angiography - all of which can be arranged via CardioQinetics Heart Clinic.
When it comes to treatment, there are different options including tablets (medicine), percutaneous intervention (stenting), as well as surgery (coronary artery bypass grafting). Dr Chai will go through these treatment modalities in the article - however if you suffer from coronary artery disease, it is best to get expert advice tailored to your individual circumstances.
