See How It Works

What is Coronary Angioplasty ?

Angioplasty, also known as coronary angioplasty or percutaneous coronary intervention is a minimally invasive procedure used to widen the occluded blood vessels or to relieve stenosis (blockage) of blood vessels to ensure proper blood flow to the heart. The procedure is done when a person develops Coronary Artery Disease or CAD.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) causes arteries to get stenosed or become narrow because of deposition of calcium and fat called plaque on the arterial walls. This build-up is called atherosclerosis, which if left untreated, can lead to heart attack.

Angioplasty can be performed for two main reasons:

  • During or after heart attack: Angioplasty is done to quickly open a blocked artery to minimize the damage to the heart. Due to complete blockage of arteries and absence of oxygen to heart muscles, heart muscles can get damaged or this can even lead to death.
  • Chest pain/Angina: The arteries of the heart are narrowed and this increases the stress on heart to meet the oxygen demand causing chest pain, shortness of breath also known as angina. Angioplasty can be done as a planned procedure when medicines have failed to work.

When is Angioplasty required?

Your doctor would recommend you to undergo an angioplasty if:

  • You suffer from chest pain or shortness of breath due to CAD and medicines have failed to help.
  • You have significant blockage in one or maximum two coronary arteries. If the number or arteries involved are multiple or blockages are multiple, heart bypass is the procedure of choice.
  • You underwent heart bypass and the graft is now closed or blocked.

Not everyone suffering from CAD or atherosclerosis is a good candidate for Angioplasty. If your heart muscles are already weak or if you have blockages in multiple vessels or if the narrowing is in the main artery bringing blood to the heart, you would need a Coronary Artery Bypass Graft, or CABG commonly called open heart surgery.

Types of Angioplasty

  • Balloon Angioplasty
    Balloon angioplasty is done by passing a catheter or thin tube through a small incision in the upper leg or arm and the catheter is passed through the artery to the place of clog. The balloon is expanded to push the plaque and expand the artery.
  • Stenting
    Stents are small and expandable metal devices for expanding narrow arteries and to prevent them from closing again. Stenting is most often combined with ballooning angioplasty for long lasting results, and thus prevents the problem of restenosis of the dilated artery. One, because they do not allow the balloon to collapse inside the artery and second, modern stents are medicine coated stents or drug eluting stents which reduce the rate of in-stent restenosis.
  • Rotablation
    Rotablation is done when the plaques are too hard to be cut or crossed by balloon or stents. A special guide wire is passed till the site of stenosis followed by a drill powered by compressed air that is advanced at a speed of around 140,000 to 160,000 rpm. The process of drilling cuts the plaques calcium deposits into small particles which are removed from the body naturally. This is followed by normal angioplasty- ballooning and stent placement.

How is Angioplasty done?

Step 1

The procedure is done under local anesthesia with sedation in a cardiac Cath lab. Groin or arm is prepared for catheter insertion. Blood thinning medicines are introduced.

Step 2

A needle is inserted into the artery and a guide wire is passed through it. The wire is manipulated to blockage and a catheter is passed over the wire to reach the blockage. The location of all tubes and catheters are checked for position with proper diagnostics.

Step 3

A balloon at the catheter tip is expanded and deflated to relieve the artery narrowing. A stent can be placed after expansion to maintain the expanded status or the artery and keep it patent. The incision is closed and dressed. The patient is monitored for blood pressure.

What is the Recovery after Angioplasty like?

Patients can be discharged after an overnight stay at the hospital. It depends on the condition of the patient's health and doctor's advice. After surgery the patient is advised a lot of fluid intake and advised to not do any heavy lifting, exercise or smoking for the next 24 hours.

What Results Can I Expect from Angioplasty?

Angioplasty increases blood flow through narrowed and blocked arteries. Angina is decreased and health improves with exercise. With proper changes in lifestyle and medications the improvement of health is good. No further surgery is usually necessary, such as bypass after a successful coronary angioplasty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Angioplasty cost in India starts from US $3500 for one stent and varies depending on many factors listed above.

Angioplasty has a 97 percent success rate, with 1 percent multivessel disease and a 2% incidence rate of myocardial infarction.

The average recuperation period for angioplasty is two weeks, however this can vary depending on your health. Stick to Your Medication Regimen: It's critical to follow your medication schedule. Stopping your medicine too soon can put you at risk for a recurrence cardiac condition.

It's possible that you'll feel pressure where the catheter is introduced. When the balloon is inflated and your artery is stretched, you may have some slight discomfort, but you should not experience any acute pain throughout the process.

A coronary angioplasty takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours on average, but it might take longer. On an X-ray table, you'll be instructed to lie down on your back. You'll be hooked up to a cardiac monitor and numb your skin with a topical anesthetic.

Angioplasty is generally safe, but speak with your doctor about the risks. The following are some of the risks associated with angioplasty and stent placement: Allergic reaction to the medicine in a drug-eluting stent, the stent material (which is extremely rare), or the x-ray dye. In the place where the catheter was put, there could be a rare chance of bleeding or clotting.

You should be able to return to work after a week if you had a scheduled (non-emergency) coronary angioplasty. If you had an emergency angioplasty after a heart attack, however, it may take several weeks for you to fully heal and return to work.

Long-term repercussions necessitate lifestyle modifications, such as maintaining a healthy body weight and eating a low-fat, high-vegetable diet. Control your cholesterol and cholesterol levels, and take antiplatelet medicines as directed. Exercise is also important.

It depends on your overall health. If you're being treated for angina, you'll usually be discharged from the hospital the same or next day once the procedure is completed. If you've already been admitted to the hospital for a heart attack, you would need to stay in the hospital for a few days after the angioplasty procedure. For patients coming from abroad, it is advisable to stay for 5-6 days in India after your planned angioplasty before you go back home.

Walking, climbing stairs, and performing normal tasks are usually safe. Your doctor will probably tell you that you can resume moderate activities after five days, but you should avoid overexertion that causes shortness of breath, weariness, or chest pain.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless.
