Coronary Angioplasty


Coronary angioplasty is a procedure to open an artery in the heart that has become narrowed. This allows better blood flow through the artery and to the heart muscle. It is often done with a balloon that is passed through a special catheter.

The success rate of coronary angioplasty surgeries in selected Indian hospitals is comparable to the best in the world with over 99.9 % success rates. This success rate coupled with the best possible price around the globe has prompted patients all over the world to take advantage of a replenishing and a lifesaving experience.

Atherosclerosis is a disease of the arteries. Cholesterol and fatty deposits build up on the walls of the arteries. This restricts blood flow. When this build up occurs in the heart, it may lead to a heart attack. Lifestyle changes and medicines can be used to treat atherosclerosis. If they are not enough, an angioplasty may be done.

A short note on how your angioplasty would be done

The area of the groin or arm where the catheter will be inserted will be shaved, cleaned, and numbed. A needle will be inserted into the artery. You will receive blood thinning medicines during the procedure. A wire will be passed through the needle and into the artery. The wire will be very carefully guided through until it reaches the blocked artery in the heart. A soft, flexible catheter tube will then be slipped over the wire and threaded up to the blockage.


The doctor will be taking x-ray pictures during the procedure to know where the wire and catheter are. Dye will be injected into the arteries of the heart to enable a better view of the arteries and blockages.


Once the blockage is reached, a small balloon at the tip of the catheter will be rapidly inflated and deflated. This will stretch the artery open. The deflated balloon, catheter, and wire will be removed. The surgeon may also insert a small mesh tube called a stent into the artery where there was a narrowing. A stent acts to keep the artery open by providing support inside the artery. After the procedure is done and the blood thinning medicines have worn off,

the catheter will be removed. Pressure will be applied for 20-30 minutes to control bleeding. The entire process will take a maximum of three hours.


Will it hurt? …

The anesthetic will numb the area where the catheter is inserted. You may feel a very slight burning sensation when the anesthesia is given. You may also feel pressure when the catheters are moved. Some people have a flushed feeling or some nausea when the dye is injected. You may feel some slight chest pain during inflation of the balloon.

Surgery procedure in India is comparable to the best in the world, and what makes it the best is not only the technical expertise and experienced pool of surgeon but also the comprehensive post operative care that ensures your fast and comfortable revival post surgery. A team of experienced doctors will be there for your care after the surgery. A vascular closure device or a pressure dressing will be placed over the area where the catheter was inserted to prevent bleeding. You may be given a blood-thinning therapy. You will be given healthy motivation and tips to follow a good life style including healthy foods and exercises.
