Non surgical Procedures to open blocked arteries. Sibia Medical Centre, Ludhiana - Dr SS Sibia is working on preventing and reversing heart disease.
What is Artery Clearance Therapy (ACT)?
ACT is non-operative treatment of angina chest pain to increase blood flow to the heart to avoid bypass and to treat post bypass angina pain with Chelation Therapy along with Lifestyle management, antioxidants and nutrients.
How is ACT done?
ACT prevents and reverses heart disease. It includes EDTA chelation therapy which is safe, comfortable intravenous drip medication as recommended by American College for Advancement in Medicine. In ACT medicines are given in intravenous drip each lasting 2½ to 3 hours. Usually 20 to 30 drips are given two or three times a week in 6 to 15 weeks. Patients can also have two drips on consecutive days every week.
Which patients can benefit by ACT?
Heart patients of Angina chest pain and Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack) -
* With failed angioplasty or bypass
* Who are not fit for angioplasty or bypass
* Who do not benefit by medicines.
* Who do not want angioplasty or bypass
ACT is also beneficial in:
* Pain legs due to Peripheral Artery Disease
* Cerebral ischaemia with memory/mental deficiency
* Cerebral thrombosis /embolism caused paresis
* Chronic Fatigue (Tiredness) Syndrome
* Decreased sexual functioning
* To increase sports performance
* For detoxification and anti-ageing
How does the patient know he has improved?
Patients have improve quality of life. They feel better, and test better, have less frequency and intensity of chest pain and discomfort, breath better, can walk longer distance and require less medication. They have increased energy, work capacity, memory, mental ability, sexual performance, less fatigue and pain legs and improved general looks and skin colour.
Will angiography, Cardiovascular Cartography and Stress Thallium show the improvement?
Improvement with ACT and ECP can be assessed with Cardiovascular Cartography (CCG) or Stress Thallium as they document the blood flow. Please note that blood flow is not proportionate to the degree of stenosis in blood vessel as is usually presumed. Angiography assesses the patency and stenosis in three big blood vessels and their major branches but is not suitable for visualizing the millions of smaller blood vessels and capillaries, nor for assessing the overall blood flow to the heart muscle which is what ultimately matters.
