Coronary angiograms are part of a general group of procedures known as heart (cardiac) catheterizations. It is an investigative procedure that uses imaging to see your heart's blood vessels. The test is generally done to see if there's a restriction in blood flow going to the heart.
An angioplasty is a surgical procedure needed to open up the blocked arteries that supply blood to your heart muscle. These coronary arteries get blocked due to accumulation of plaque from increased levels of cholesterol. Doctors often perform this procedure where the blockage has space to be opened up. The procedure is also called a percutaneous trans luminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or percutaneous coronary intervention. In many cases, doctors insert a coronary artery stent after an angioplasty. The stent helps keep the blood flowing and prevents the artery from narrowing again. This procedure, also done at DESUN’s Cathlab, entails a dilatation of the narrowed coronary arteries with a balloon or stent, which may sometimes be permanently placed at the site of the blockage or narrowing. DESUN Hospital for Coronary (Heart) Angioplasty uses Top American company manufactured high quality FDA approved cardiac stents at Government of India Regulated cost. Honest pricing, high quality and good for heart.
