Coronary Angioplasty Procedure

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.
