Angioplasty

Coronary angioplasty or Per cutaneous coronary intervention is commonly used to open the arteries that are either narrowed or blocked in the heart. A stent (small, metal mesh tube) is inserted into the artery and a balloon attached at the end is inflated to crush the plaque that is clogging the arteries.

 

Know More About Surgery

The conditions in which an Angioplasty and Stent Replacement is required are:

  • Blockage of one or more coronary artery
  • Heart attack
  • Narrowing of one or more coronary arteries

There are several methods of diagnosis such as:

  • Stress echocardiography
  • Cardiac catheterization with angiography
  • CT coronary angiography

 A small incision is made in groin area or arm to access an artery, then a thin flexible tube called catheter is inserted through the incision to the coronary artery with the help of special X-ray called fluoroscopy.

A small wire is passed through catheter and a second catheter along with stent follows it with a small balloon attached to it; once it reaches the blocked artery the surgeon inflates it. Now the plaque is crushed and stent helps in maintaining the artery open.

The risks involved in an Angioplasty are:

  • Allergic reactions 
  • Blood clots
  • Blood vessel injury
  • Nerve injury
  • Heart attack
  • Kidney failure
  • Arrhythmia
  • Stroke

After an Angioplasty, the patient must keep in mind the following:

  • Recovery takes about a week
  • Drink plenty of fluids to eliminate the dye
  • Consult the doctor about the restrictions in physical activity
