What is Coronary Angiography? 

Coronary angiography is a procedure in which a special X-ray to see your heart's blood vessels (the coronary arteries) are narrowed or blocked by using special contrast material. The resulting images are known as coronary angiograms.

 

Coronary angiography symptoms include:

  • chest pain (angina)
  • congenital heart disease
  • heart attack

Coronary angiography risk factors include:

  • Heart attack or Stroke
  • Irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias)
  • Allergic reactions
  • Damage of  kidneys
  • Kidney damage
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection

 

  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for Coronary angiography or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the cardiac surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The cardiac surgeon should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital one day before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

Before surgery, the surgeon and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about benefits and risk factor of Coronary Angiography.

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Coronary angiography usually takes 30 to 60 minutes by giving of local anaesthesia and intravenous sedation on the groin or wrist.  

Step 2 – The incision:

  1. The cardiac surgeon will give a small incision on the groin or wrist. A flexible tube called a catheter is inserted into an artery and up to the heart by Using X-ray images as a guide.
  2. Fluoroscopic guidance and radiopaque contrast dye are injected into the artery through the catheter to visible on x-ray or video to see where your arteries are blocked.
  3. After the procedure catheter will be removed.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The Surgeon will flap the skin with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions and put the dressing on your wounds.

Step 4 – Result: After coronary angiography, the surgeon will advise the patient will go for medication, coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft depending on the results.

The doctor will advise you to avoid having a bath for a day or two and to do hard physical activities. The patient should contact the doctor immediately if the following symptoms are detected, unusual bleeding, Fever, Weakness, Breath shortness, Chest pain.

 The success rate of Coronary angiography is more than 97% depending on the cardiac surgeon experienced hands.

  • Are you a board-certified cardiac surgeon?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform angiography surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this angiography procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What are the risk factors of angiography?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend? Why?
  • What are my options if I am not satisfied with the outcome of angiography surgery?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of angiography surgery?
  • How will long time take this angiography surgery?
  • How long I have to say in the hospital and outside the hospital?
  • How long will it take to recover?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the surgery?
  • Do I need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
  • What are the symptoms of a blocked artery?
  • What percentage of blocking of an artery is dangerous?
  • What are the symptoms of a blockage in your heart?
  • What is better angioplasty or bypass surgery?
