Coronary Angiography is the procedure in which the cardiologists insert a catheter from the femoral or the radial artery and reach the coronary arteries. In angiography cardiologists find out the blockages in the arteries or other heart problems. The coronary angiography is done in a Cath Lab and takes about 30 minutes. The images are then studied to find out the extent of the blockages. In most cases the cardiologist will recommend to get the angioplasty done in the same sitting. The patient should be accompanied by a person who is able to understand the images of the procedure and take an informed decision on the spot.
Angiography is a very common procedure and is done at various hospitals with Cath Labs and good cardiologists in India. Medanta Medicity and Artemis Health Institute in Gurgaon, India are considered as Best Hospitals for angiography and Angioplasty in India. Metro Hospital is the best hospital for angiography and angioplasty in Noida, India, B L Kapur Hospital is the best hospital for angiography and angioplasty in Delhi, India and Fortis Escorts can be put up as best place for angiography and angioplasty in Faridabad, India.
The best cost for this procedure is USD 500 in a single room for one day stay.
Coronary Angiography is the gold standard investigation for diagnosing the heart problems and gives more accurate results as compared to less invasive CT Angio. The problem with this investigation is the judgement of the cardiologist about the blockages detected in the arteries and the line of treatment to be taken after the procedure. Most of the hospitals normally advise the patients to undergo Angioplasty in the same sitting. Health in India recommends to take informed decision regarding the same and the patient should get his CD examined by atleast one more cardiologist before going in for angioplasty.
