Angioplasty is a medical procedure which involves dilation of a narrowed or obstructed blood vessel caused by blockage. All kinds of vascular interventions performed with in minimally invasive or percutaneous method are called angioplasty.
Coronary Angioplasty is a percutaneous procedure which involves a small puncture to be made in the arm or groin artery. The cardiologist passes a thin wire through the puncture siteacross the blocked artery. After this a catheter with a balloon is passed over the inserted wire to the blocked area. When the tube reaches the blockage the balloon is inflated which in turn widens the artery the increase the blood flow. In some cases plaque removers or thrombus extraction devices may also be used. Devices like stents are placed to keep the artery open.
Percutaneous coronary intervention usually takes about 2 hours. During the procedure, the patient is kept awake but feels drowsy due to the effect of medication given to him.
The Cardiologists at Hospitals have pioneered Coronary Artery Stenting in India. The latest advancement in Coronary Angioplasty in the form of Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) or Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is available in India too.
Coronary Angioplasty increases the flow of blood to the heart by widening the narrow arteries, which in turn decreases the risk of a heart attack and reduces the symptoms of angina.
