India may Lose Over $230 bn from Heart Diseases

was more than three times compared to the rural populace.

"Changing lifestyles, no focus on physical exercise and growing work pressure in urban setups are contributing to the spread of this menace," he added.

He said every year 25,000 coronary bypass operations and 12,000 Angioplasties were carried out in India. Nearly, 100,000 children were born every year with congenital heart diseases.

Notwithstanding the urban-rural divide, the consumption of tobacco persisted, and that is "bad news", he said. Youngsters in rural areas are taking to tobacco as a "hobby" while smoking has become a lifestyle statement in cities.

"The situation is really grim in India. As the number of deaths is growing gradually, the country is losing productive working days, which in turn is a loss to the economy," said K. Srinath Reddy, head of cardiology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

Upendra Kaul, chief cardiologist at the Fortis hospital, said that due to lifestyle problems nearly 10 percent of the urban population and around three percent in rural areas were suffering from coronary heart diseases.

"More shockingly, over 30 percent of these patients are young (below 40 years). The disease is certainly affecting their income by eating into the productive workdays. This indirectly has a negative impact on the country's economy," Kaul said.

Baba Das, one the doctors to perform the first open heart surgery in India, said the increasing incidence of heart diseases and deaths due to heart problems were causing major concern.
