What is Angioplasty?

Angioplasty is a minimally invasive surgical modality that aims at restoring normal blood flow in clogged or obstructed arteries, so as to relieve the symptoms and ensure an undisrupted supply of oxygenated blood to different parts of the body post arterial occlusion. The obstruction can be caused by the narrowing of the arteries due to excess plaque accumulation. This is commonly referred to as stenosis and it indicates the prevalence of a serious heart condition known as atherosclerosis. 

The disrupted blood circulation is likely to give rise to various symptoms like:

  • Muscle weakness and pain in the lower limbs due to insufficient supply of blood
  • High blood pressure or hypertension, often resulting in kidney failure
  • Persistent chest pain and discomfort, which is commonly referred to as angina
  • Stroke accompanied by hemiplegia 

Things you need to know 

  • Angioplasty is performed under the influence of anaesthesia.
  • The procedure takes about 45 to 90 minutes.  
  • You will be required to stay in the hospital for about 2 to 3 days followed by a few more days of rest 
  • Your average length of stay will be around 3 days to a week.

How to prepare for the treatment?

  • You will be required to undergo certain screenings and tests to evaluate and assess your overall health.
  • It is important to refrain from smoking to ensure better results
  • You need to fast for around 6 to 8 hours prior to your surgery. Though you can take your medicines, make sure you consult your doctor before doing so. 
  • You might be required to stop taking anticoagulants, in case you are taking any. 
  • Patients who take insulin might also be required to change their dose

Procedure involved

  • Angioplasty is performed under the influence of local anaesthesia 
  • It involves the use of a catheter fitted with a balloon on one of its ends, which is introduced into the femoral artery by making a tiny incision on the patient’s thigh.
  • The catheter is guided towards the blockage using imaging guidance that involves the use of a tiny surgical camera and contrast dye.
  • Once the catheter is in the right position, the balloon is carefully inflated to push the walls of the narrowed artery. 
  • Once the artery is unclogged, the balloon is deflated to restore the normal blood circulation. In some cases, a stent may be placed inside the artery so as to prevent it from narrowing back. 
  • The catheter and the balloon are then removed and the surgical incision is closed. 

What to expect after the treatment?

  • It takes about 2 to 3 days to recover from the procedure, however, in case of stent placement, it may take a couple of weeks to recover completely. 
  • You need to take care of the surgical site to avoid bleeding
  • You will be prescribed certain medication to negate the risks of clotting
  • You will be discharged after a thorough post-operative evaluation 
  • Potential risks that you need to know about:
  • Allergic reaction to the contrast dye material used for imaging guidance
  • Bleeding at the site of catheter insertion
  • Myocardial infarction or stroke triggered by the removal of atheroma plaque
