Coronary Angioplasty


Coronary Angioplasty is the procedure in which the cardiologists insert a catheter from the femoral or the radial artery to reach the coronary arteries where plaque formation is causing blockage in the arteries. A baloon is used to inflate the artery and a spring like structure called Stent is placed to keep the artery open. There are two types of stents - Bare metal and Drug Eluting. The drug eluting stents are better but cost more. The major cost of this procedure is due to the type and number of stents used. The hospital should have a Cath Lab, Cardiac OT, experienced cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and cardiac anaesthetists to carry out the procedure. It is extremely safe if done at a proper place and by experienced doctors.

Health in India Opinion

Coronary Angioplasty is the most common of the heart treatment. There are many good hospitals doing this procedure routinely and successfully. While going for heart treatment take care to find out the reputation of the hospital and the cardiologist. Many hospitals tend to overdo the procedure and stent blockages which can be treated medically. Low quality stents are sometimes put in the arteries leading to restenosis (blockage occurring again).
