Can I run after a heart stent

It mainly depends on the function of the heart.

If the cause is acute myocardial infarction, although the stent is implanted, the necrotic myocardium is not easy to recover, the necrotic area is small, the relative cardiac function is better than that after surgery, the exercise tolerance is relatively good, and the cardiac function with large necrotic area is poor. Some patients may have shortness of breath and difficulty in breathing during normal activities. Such climbing and running are definitely not good.

If it is a simple angina pectoris patient, the treatment is relatively timely, the degree of coronary artery stenosis is more than 75%, the heart stent is placed, the blood vessels are not completely occluded or there is no cardiac muscle necrosis, the treatment effect of stent placement in this patient is the best, the possibility of myocardial infarction is effectively prevented, and many people can recover without difference from normal people.

After surgery, routine oral anticoagulants and ester regulating drugs can be taken. Just 1-3 weeks after the operation, proper aerobic exercise can be carried out, and the normal exercise level can be gradually restored. After 6 months, running should be OK.

If there is no myocardial infarction, but the patient may be coronary heart disease combined with hypertension, diabetes and other diseases that lead to cardiac insufficiency, the exercise intensity is determined in combination with the patient’s postoperative cardiac function. You can see the doctor’s advice, as well as your body’s reaction and tolerance.

precautions after cardiac stent surgery

1. Postoperative examination: patients undergoing cardiac stent surgery need to have ECG examination after operation to observe the situation of myocardial ischemia and whether there is bleeding at the puncture site.

2. After surgery, stents can only alleviate symptoms, but can not fundamentally inhibit atherosclerosis. Most patients still need to be treated for coronary heart disease after surgery to prevent coronary artery restenosis; In addition, patients also need to take antiplatelet drugs for antithrombotic treatment.

3. Daily life also needs to pay attention to: control blood sugar and blood fat, prevent diabetes and hypertension; Quit smoking, drinking and exercise, and develop healthy living habits; Light diet, less meat, more vegetables, etc.

4. Postoperative follow-up: patients should cooperate with doctors to do regular follow-up after surgery. It is recommended to have angiography nine months to one year after surgery to see how effective the treatment is.
