Heart’s arteries can become blocked or narrowed from a buildup of cholesterol, cells or other substances known as plaque. This can reduce blood flow to your heart and cause a discomfort in the chest. Sometimes a blood clot can suddenly form or get worse and completely block blood flow, leading to a cardiac arrest.
Angioplasty (PTCA) opens blocked arteries and restores normal blood flow to your heart muscle. It is done by threading a catheter (thin tube) through a small puncture in a leg or arm artery to the heart. The blocked artery is opened by inflating a tiny balloon in it. DESUN Hospital performs successfully this balloon angioplasty at a lowest cost in Kolkata.
Why do I need it?
People with blockages in their heart arteries may need to undergo an angioplasty. Your Doctor will tell you exactly when you need to do one.
How is it done?
The doctor numbs a spot on your groin or arm and inserts a small tube (catheter) into an artery.
The catheter is threaded through the arterial system until it gets into a coronary (heart) artery.
Watching on a special X-ray screen, the doctor moves the catheter into the artery. Next , a very thin wire is threaded through the catheter and across the blockage. Over this wire, a catheter with a thin, expandable balloon on the end is passed to the blockage.
The balloon is inflated. It pushes plaque to the side and stretches the artery open, so blood can flow more easily. This may be done more than once.
In many patients a collapsed wire mesh tube (stent) mounted on a special balloon, is moved over the wire to the blocked area.
As the balloon is inflated, it opens the stent against the artery walls. The stent locks in this position and helps keep the artery open.
The balloon and catheters are taken out. Now the artery has been opened, and your heart will get the blood it needs.
Does Angioplasty hurt?
No, angioplasty causes very little pain. The doctor will numb the place with a local anaesthesia where the catheter will be inserted. You may feel some pressure as the stent is released.
You’ll be awake and alert but may be given medicine to help you relax.
