Can Chelation Therapy avoid By Pass Surgery?

A few days back father in law of  Vipul Mody’s friend was admitted in a nursing home  at Kandivali, Mumbai due to severe chest pain fifteen days ago. The patient had suffered an attack in 1997 (thirteen years ago) and was undergoing normal treatment. The doctors  suggested for Angiography.
Blocked  Artery  - By Pass Surgery is one option

His Angiography was conducted  at Hinduja Hospital and the reports suggested that he has multiple blockages. The doctor told that he cannot undergo Angioplasty due to several  blockages but suggested 'By Pass Surgery'.  For that they were asked to wait for another two to three weeks as since the doctor suggested  that his heart is very weak. So the family members  brought him back to home.

The friends and relatives  kept on searching for the treatment and someone suggested to go for the  Chelation Therapy or Calation Therapy. They were told that in this therapy any patient who has to undergo by-pass surgery can be treated by giving medicated blood. Approximately 18 bottles of blood is required to be transfused.
The medicated blood cleans the system and removes all the blockages from the heart.The no. of bottles may increase depending upon the age factor and health of the patient. The cost of the blood per bottle would be appx. Rs.2,500/- ($ 55) The treatment takes of appx. 1 month. Total cost is less than $ 1,500. But is this really effective?

Chelation therapy is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. For the most common forms of heavy metal intoxication involves lead, arsenic or mercury. The history of this therapy goes back to World War I  when it was used to counter side effects of poison gas. The first widely used chelating agent, the organic dithiol compound dimercaprol (also named British anti-lewisite or BAL), was used as an antidote to the arsenic-based poison gas, lewisite. BAL had severe side-effects.

Administering Medicine with Blood
After World War II, ethylene diaminetetra acetic acid (EDTA) was introduced as a lead chelating agent. Paints had high amount of lead and workers doing the paint work had poisonous effect of lead. Unlike BAL, it is a synthetic amino acid and contains no mercaptans. EDTA side effects were not considered as severe as BAL.
Some common chelating agents are EDTA, DMPS, TTFD  and DMSA. Calcium-disodium EDTA and DMSA are only approved for the removal of lead by the Food and Drug Administration while DMPS and TTFD are not approved by the FDA. These drugs bind to heavy metals in the body and prevent them from binding to other agents. They are then excreted from the body. The chelating process also removes vital nutrients such as vitamins C and E, therefore these must be supplemented

Some alternative medicine practitioners administer chelating agents, usually EDTA, to patients with atherosclerosis cardiovascular disease. The use of EDTA chelation therapy as a treatment for coronary artery disease has not been shown to be effective and is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Several possible mechanisms have been proposed, though none have been scientifically validated.
It found that very small trials and uncontrolled descriptive studies have reported benefits while larger controlled studies have found results no better than placebo.  The American Heart Association states that there is "no scientific evidence to demonstrate any benefit from this form of therapy".The Mayo Clinic states that 'chelation studies have found that chelation didn't work as a heart disease treatment.’

The insufficient data on both sides to favour and oppose  warrants that before taking this option it is advised that  doctor should be consulted in detail and be asked about the side effects and the success rates  of the patients they have treated.

There are only a few doctors in India giving this therapy and one of them is Dr.Dhananjay Shah at Malad (Mumbai) another at Karnataka. He has a list of patients who had to undergo by-pass from Lilavati, Hinduja and other major hospitals but after undergoing the above treatment they are absolutely fine and leading a normal life.

Details of doctors I have received from my friend. Before proceeding reconfirm with the doctors.

YES, CHELATION THERAPY HAS BEEN PROVEN BENEFIT IN HEART DISEASES AND DIABETES IN RECENT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STUDY BY NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF HEALTH, U.S.A

DISODIUM CHELATION THERAPY PREVENT HEART ATTACK, REDUCE ADVERSE EFFECT AND REDUCE NEED FOR SURGERY AND ANGIOPLASTY.

DUE TO HUGE POLITICS, IT HAS BEEN STILL NOT WIDELY POPPULAR.

ALONG WITH CONVENTIONAL MEDICINES , IT IS BEST TO PREVENT BYPASS SURGERY
