Does part of your heart die after a heart attack?
Hello. Heart attack is myocardial infarction in scientific term. “Infarction“ is by definition “local tissue death”, which happens due to stopped blood flow in one of the heart arteries supplying blood (and therefore) oxygen to that tissue area. Depending on location and caliber of the artery blocked, damaged/dead tissue area can be very small or very large. That defines the effect on heart function and changes in electrocardiogram during and after heart attack. Hope this answers your question. Be well and healthy! Natalie Marks READ MORE
Can you recover from heart failure?
I am sorry about your health issue. In most cases, one can recover from some cases of heart failure if the reason for it was curable (infection that’s was treated, toxins that were eliminated and others). It also depends on failure stage (severity). I would recommend to see a cardiologist and ask for best opinion in your particular clinical case. Hope you feel better. Natalie Marks, MD READ MORE
What creams treat varicose veins?
Good evening. There are really no research-proven creams effective for treatment of varicose veins. Best treatments are sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, surgical excision (depending on veins sizes). There are some recommendations in the literature for use of creams and gels containing horse chestnut extract but at best they can soften skin over veins and maybe decrease discomfort (no good quality studies to prove if). No cream with actually make veins disappear. Natalie Marks READ MORE
What is the best treatment for varicose veins?
Good morning. There are several treatments for varicose veins, to best customize them for you personally, detailed venous sonogram “venous mapping” needs to be performed first. This sonogram will assess how well or bad your veins (deep and superficial) work, how small or large your superficial veins are, not only the ones you see and don’t like the way they look but other veins that bring blood to the ones you want to get rid of. Based on venous mapping results and physical examination, treatment plan will be developed which may include thermal or chemical ablation of main superficial veins and surgical excision or chemical ablation (foam sclerotherapy or esthetic sclerotherapy) of varicose veins you see and want to eliminate. I am a vein vascular specialist and would be happy to provide consultation for your veins. Feel free to call my office 718-438-3800 to make an appointment. Natalie Marks, MD READ MORE
