Coronary Angioplasty

Coronary angioplasty is a medical procedure used to remove blockage in a coronary artery that is narrowed by atherosclerosis. It is one of the most common types of treatment for the heart. Coronary angioplasty usually takes 30 minutes to 2 hours for the procedure to be completed.

Procedure

  • Coronary angioplasty is performed using local anaesthesia
  • A catheter (with a balloon)  will be inserted into one of your arteries through your groin, wrist or arm.
  • The catheter is guided to the affected 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, and the balloon is inflated to widen the narrowed artery.
  • This pushes the fatty deposits or plaque outward, against the artery walls, which opens them allowing blood to flow through the artery more freely.

Benefits

  • Blood flow through coronary artery improves
  • Increases your chances of surviving a thrombolysis
  • Reduces chances of having another heart attack
  • Improves symptoms of coronary artery disease
  • Reduces the risk of death in some patients

Risks

  • Bleeding or bruising under the skin where catheter was inserted
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Damage to the artery where the catheter was inserted
  • Allergic reaction
  • Heart attack
