There's more LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Heart surgery- can give relief Dear Dr. Lamb read tons of literature on coronary heart disease, but not much can be found about the surgery. Last fall, my husband re- ceived two grails on tire left side of the heart from the sa- .phenous vein in his leg. Re- cent tests show one graft is supplying a lot of blood, and he is doing very well. The oth- er v-ollapsed. He did not re- ceive the mammary artery im- plant. Can you make any com- ments on the surgery? Dear Reader It is great that your husband is doing so well. Many patients have ob- tained relief from this opra- tion. The principle Is to cut out the clogged area in the artery .of the heart and sew in a piece of the patient's vein as a re- placement. There are varia- tions on this, like slitting UK artery and sewing a patch of vein on top ot the split to en- large the opening. This pro- vides an immediate relief to the symptoms of obstructed blood flow. Even improving the blood flow through one artery often helps, because tbe main ar- teries, to the heart are all con- nected into a fine-branching network of arteries. These caa open to detour the blood so that most of ttie heart muscle can get bfcod through one artery if these detour arteries are open. Some people Ere born .vith only one artery. It is too early to know just how successful this type of sur- gery will be on a long-term basis. It takes time and study to find cut if the new graft will stay open. Some studies show that in some patients the graft also develops atherosclerosis the same changes that blockei the artery originally and 'hen the difficulty is back. A similar problem has been observed in transplanting hearts. The arteries to the transplanted heart develop se- vere atherosclerosis in a shor time. Apparently the rejection problem or allergic reaction ti the new heart can also cause atherosclerosis. There are many ways atherosclerosis can be Influenced diet, exercise heredity, tobacco, toxins ant even tile allergicllke immune reactions seen in transplao failures. Hopefully ttiig prob- lem will be minimized in vein transplants taken from the pa tient's own body, but the prob- lem is not wived. Numerous methods have been devised to try to increase the blood flow to the heart ;nus cle. These have included at tadnng the open end of other arteries in the patient's body into tbe heart muscle. Each case different. None of the procedures have been so out- standingly successful over a pe- riod of years to become the an swer to the complex problem of coronary artery disease That is why they haven't been used on a mass scale. The vein transplants seem to offer the best outlook of a series of dif- ferent attempts. Its record Is far superior to the popularized heart transplants. Advice your husbanc should continue to do every- thing he can to minimize ather- osclerosis, that includes diet avoiding cigarettes and sensible activity under his doctor's su- pervision.
