with Dr. Chawakorn Leampriboon

Mrs. Lay Chunn is a courageous 73-year-old woman who suffered from chest pain and angina. She decided to fly from Cambodia to Vejthani Hospital, where she found hope under the care of Dr. Chawakorn Leampriboon, a renowned thoracic surgeon with extensive expertise in open heart surgery. Mrs. Lay’s cardio angiogram showed severe narrowing of all three heart vessels. Dr. Chawakorn explained that off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting surgery offered the most suitable solution for her condition. Find out the result of Mrs. Lay Chhun’s treatment and witness her remarkable transformation after the surgery.

Coronary artery disease or myocardial infarction often affects men aged 55 and older, women aged 65 and older, or those with risk factors such as obesity, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, smoking, lack of exercise, and a family history of coronary artery disease. Notably, this disease may remain asymptomatic during its initial stages.
However, if a patient starts experiencing chest pain or a subtle ache in the chest, along with symptoms like fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, or loss of consciousness— it may indicate a vessel blockage exceeding 50%—it’s crucial to seek medical attention promptly. Screening for abnormalities or assessing the functionality of coronary arteries in individuals with risk factors can facilitate early detection, streamlining treatment and reducing its complexity.
