Coronary Angioplasty

Angioplasty surgery or Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) is performed to recover from chronic heart disease like Atherosclerosis. When your heart arteries get blocked or narrowed by a sticky substance called plaque, then coronary angioplasty is required. It is a procedure to open blocked arteries of the heart using a stent. After a week of angioplasty surgery, one can return to home.

Angioplasty surgery helps the person in recovering from the symptoms like chronic heart disease e.g. Atherosclerosis, severe pain in the chest, breathing problem, high blood pressure, immediately after heart attack, inflammation, high cholesterol level, diabetes, etc.

Before undergoing per-cutaneous coronary intervention, your cardiologist will ask you to submit the following test reports, which involves physical or clinical examination, Echo, ECG, blood markers, angiography, etc.

A common balloon angioplasty surgery is performed after inducing anaesthesia. A catheter is inserted to remove waxy substance called plaque from the blocked artery of the heart which helps in recovering from symptoms.
