Angioplasty Cost in Mumbai
Angioplasty is performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory, or “cardiac cath lab,” in a hospital. The physician who performs the procedure is called an interventional cardiologist, a heart doctor with additional education, training and experience in treating cardiovascular problems with thin, flexible tubes called catheters. Before the procedure, your interventional cardiologist will review any risks of the procedure and the anaesthesia that will be used, as well as obtain your informed consent, which gives your physician permission to perform the procedure.
A thin flexible tube called a catheter will be inserted into one of your arteries through an incision in your groin, wrist or arm. This is guided to the affected coronary artery using an X-ray video. When the catheter is in place, a thin wire is guided down the length of the affected coronary artery, delivering a small balloon to the affected section of artery. This is then inflated to widen the artery, squashing fatty deposits against the artery wall so blood can flow through it more freely when the deflated balloon is removed.
If a stent is being used, this will be around the balloon before it’s inserted. The stent will expand when the balloon is inflated and remains in place when the balloon is deflated and removed. A coronary angioplasty usually takes between 30 minutes and two hours.
