Coronary Angioplasty Treatment Cost in India


Angioplasty, also known as a balloon or coronary angioplasty is a procedure done to expand the blocked or narrowed arteries of the heart. It is generally done to treat a type of heart disease known as atherosclerosis in which fatty plaques develop in coronary arteries (vessels supplying blood to the heart) narrowing them, thus restricting oxygen-rich blood to the heart.

Angioplasty for whom and why

Angioplasty is suggested only if the medications prescribed, quitting smoking, or getting more physical activity does not improve the Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) symptoms. The doctors taking into account a number of factors suggest the treatment options which include angioplasty and coronary artery bypass, also known as open-heart surgery. Angioplasty is generally done when the blockage in arteries is less and it can be reached during the procedure. In cases where multiple coronary arteries are blocked, open heart surgery is prescribed. 

 

Side effects and risks of coronary angioplasty 

  • Although it is a commonly done medical procedure for CAD and considered safe,  it carries little risk of some side effects or complications.
  • You feel faint or weak.
  • Pain in the chest or shortness of breath.
  • Allergic reaction to the dye being used. 
  • Damage to the blood vessels from the catheter.
  • Change in physical appearance like change in temperature or color of the leg or arm that was used for the procedure. 
  • The place where the catheter is inserted starts bleeding or swelling or feel to develop pain or discomfort.
     

Procedure 

Before surgery 

  • The doctor shall review the medical history and do a physical examination of the patient. 
  • The patient has to observe fasting for 6-8 hours before the surgery and maybe instructed to stop taking medications as per the directions of the physician. 
  • The patient would have to get the routine blood tests, ECG, coronary angiogram done. A coronary angiogram helps doctors determine if the arteries to the heart are narrowed or blocked.
     

During surgery         

  • Before angioplasty, the doctor may give blood-thinning medicines to prevent blood clots and the operation is performed by giving local anesthesia to the patient.
  • A thin elastic tube (catheter) is threaded through a blood vessel, by making an incision in the wrist, groin or arm.
  • The catheter with a balloon at the tip is guided to the artery with the help of an X-ray video until it reaches the blockage in the heart. 
  • At the blockage, the balloon is then inflated to widen the artery, wraps the fatty deposits of the artery wall so that blood can flow through it more easily.
  • In the case of stent placement, the stent which is collapsed around the balloon is also guided to the blockage. At the blockage, the balloon is inflated and the spring-like stent expands and gets locked inside the artery. 
  • When the stent is placed properly, the surgeon deflates the balloon and takes out the flexible tube and balloon.
  • A coronary angioplasty procedure can take up to 35 minutes to 3 hours.
     

After surgery 

  • The catheter is removed and pressure applied to the puncture site for 10-15 minutes to ensure no bleeding occurs from the artery.
  • In a non-emergency procedure, the patient is monitored in the recovery room, checked for bleeding or chest pain and medications are adjusted. However, if the procedure is done in case of a heart attack, the stay in the hospital could be longer.
  • Patient in non-emergency procedure is able to resume normal activities in a week.

Frequently Asked Questions About Coronary Angioplasty 
 

Q. What are the precautions to be taken after angioplasty?

Patients who've gone through the procedure are advised to take blood-thinning agents and maintain a healthy lifestyle including keeping weight in control, performing regular exercises, avoiding oily and fatty foods, controlling diabetes and high blood pressure, amongst other specific directions given by the physician.

 

Q. When can the patient return home after the surgery?

In case of pain in the chest caused due to restricted blood flow to heart, the patient can return on the same day or the day after the procedure. However, in the case of angioplasty with stent placement and heart attack, stay in the hospital is generally for more than a week.

 

Q. How safe is it?

Coronary angioplasty is the most common type of treatment in the case of heart problems. It is a minimally invasive procedure (doesn't include making large incisions in the body). 

 

Q. What is the prognosis and benefits of a coronary angioplasty?

 

Coronary angioplasty greatly increases blood flow through the previously narrowed or blocked coronary artery. It also increases the chances of surviving after the heart attack. It doesn’t mean that the CAD goes away permanently; the patient will need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and take proper medications as advised. 

 

Q. Is coronary angioplasty suitable for diabetes patients?

The doctors may suggest coronary artery bypass surgery even if you have diabetes and multiple blockages. However, it is decided on the basis of an overall medical condition and the extent of heart damage.

 

Q. Is it suitable for older people?

Coronary angioplasties are normally performed in people aged 60 or older because they're more likely to have heart disease.

 

Q. Can angioplasty be used to treat a heart attack?

Yes, angioplasty is also used to treat heart attack, and the good thing is that it increases the chances of surviving. Angioplasty also reduces the chances of reoccurrence or having another heart attack in the future.
