New vascular test in 20 minutes will reveal the cause of pain in the heart

For the diagnosis of various diseases, there are many ways. But there are times when manifested symptom not says absolutely nothing: it can be as minor muscle spasms, and signs of development of serious disease. One of the most dangerous localization of pain is the chest, because the heart is located there is one of those authorities, upon refusal of which human life can be completed. It is therefore right to identify the source of pain is an extremely important task and a group of scientists at the University of Glasgow have recently introduced a new 20 minute test that is 6 times more effective in comparison with existing methods.

According to the press service of the University, the new method can be used not only for monitoring the state of the body, but also to search for hidden disorders of the heart. New test (which does not yet have a name) based on the use of ultrasensitive flexible wire, which, through veins of the lower limb is placed in the cavity of the heart. This device is able to measure the flexibility of the vessels, their permeability and availability, impeding the flow of blood. The fact that chest pain can occur usually due to the fact that the heart is not getting enough blood enriched with oxygen. Most of these vessels are of such a small size, making them very difficult to detect with current methods.

In tests, the new test has involved 151 patients, each one suffered from angina. This disease is associated with impaired blood flow and the emergence of retrosternal pain. All of them were held standard for this disease is a procedure called angiography. After that, those same patients carried out a new test and it turned out that the definition of narrowing of blood vessels occurred 6 times more often when using the new method. At the same time, though, and requires more skill than the removal of the normal electrocardiogram is invasive, it still requires for its performance no more than 20 minutes. Researchers have developed a method to believe that I believe it must be included in standard clinical examination of patients who have complaints of chest pain.
