What is Angioplasty?

Angioplasty also called balloon angioplasty and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA).  Coronary angioplasty is a nonsurgical procedure that is used to open a coronary blockage of arteries and to improve blood flow. The blood flow to the heart is improved after coronary angioplasty. Coronary angioplasty helps to improve chest pain, discomfort, and breathing. It’s also helped in preventing the chances of heart attacks.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF ANGIOPLASTY?

  • Coronary Angioplasty
  • Peripheral Angioplasty
  • Carotid Angioplasty
  • Renal artery Angioplasty
  • Venous Angioplasty

 

Coronary angioplasty sign includes:

  • Chest pain (angina),
  • Heart Rate
  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations (irregular heartbeats)
  • A faster heartbeat
  • Weakness or dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Excessive sweating

Coronary angioplasty risk factor includes:

  • Age & Gender 
  • A family history 
  • Smoking & stress
  • High blood pressure & Sugar
  • Physical inactivity & Obesity
  • 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 angioplasty or not.
  • Before the angioplasty, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.
  • After Angioplasty patient should stay an overnight at the hospital.

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

Step 1 – Anesthesia:  Angioplasty angiogram takes usually take several hours by giving sedation with the use of local anaesthesia.  

Step 2 – The incision

  • Coronary angioplasty is mostly performed in a catheterization lab.
  • A small incision is made in the patient’s wrist or groin.
  • The doctor will insert a catheter through the incision through an artery  in the groin or wrist to enlarge a narrowing in a coronary artery
  • 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.
  • The cardiac surgeon will decide to perform angioplasty and stenting to open the blockage with the help of a small balloon or stent.

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The Incision area will be sealed with an angio seal and put the dressing on your wounds.

The doctor will advise you for follow up by some investigation,   blood test echo every six months, to start blood thinner medication and to make lifestyle changes, Quit smoking, Improve your cholesterol and might include your diet changes.  The patient should contact the doctor immediately if the following symptoms are detected, Fever, Weakness, Breath shortness, Chest pain.

The success rate of Angioplasty is very good its help over 90% of patients. There is recurrent of angioplasty is Up to 30% to 40% of patients.

  • Are you a board-certified Cardiac surgeon?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform Angioplasty?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this Angioplasty procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What are the risk factors for Angioplasty?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend? Why?
  • When can I go for normal activities, including exercise after Angioplasty?
  • Do I have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Do I have a scar or other permanent effects from the Angioplasty?
  • Do I need to go to another surgery in the future after Angioplasty?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
  • Why do you have a stent put in your heart?
  • Which is better stent or bypass?
  • How serious is having a stent put in?
  • How long do you stay in the hospital after having a stent put in?
  • How long does it take to put a stent in an artery?
  • How long does it take to do an angioplasty?
  • What is the percentage of blockage of a stent?
  • What is a drug-eluting stent (DES)?
  • What is stent thrombosis?
