Frequently Asked Questions 


What is Angioplasty?

Angioplasty is a medical procedure that restores the normal blood flow throughout the arteries by widening the narrowed blood vessels and removing the blockages in the blood vessels.

  1. Peripheral Angioplasty
  2. Carotid artery Angioplasty
  3. PTA of the Femoral artery
  4. Stent Implantation
  5. Laser Angioplasty [Excimer Laser Coronary Angioplasty-ELCA]
  6. Renal artery Angioplasty
  7. Coronary artery stent
  8. Cerebral Angioplasty
  9. Valvuloplasty
  10. Balloon Angioplasty


What are the advantages connected with Angioplasty?

Following are the advantages of Angioplasty:

  1. Restores the normal blood flow
  2. Lowers the risk of recurrence of a heart attack
  3. Decreased blood loss
  4. Less invasive procedure
  5. Short hospitalization
  6. Widens the narrowed blood vessels or arteries


What are the indications of Angioplasty?

Following are the indications of Angioplasty:

  1. Angina
  2. Ischemia

  4. Discuss with the doctor about all the risks, complications, and benefits associated with Angioplasty.
  5. The patient may be asked to sign a consent form before undergoing this procedure.


What are the steps involved in Angioplasty?

Following steps are involved in Angioplasty:

  1. The patient will be sedated and then, a catheter or small tube will be inserted into the large artery.
  2. The catheter is slowly directed throughout the artery until the tip approaches the vessel that needed to be checked.
  3. Now, the contrast dye is injected into the blood vessel through the catheter, and the X-rays of the blood vessels will be taken.
  4. These X-ray images may be examined by the doctor and a small balloon at the end of the catheter will be inflated and widens the narrowed artery.
  5. After widening the artery, the balloon will be deflated. In a few cases, a stent will be placed in the obstructed artery for normal blood flow.


What is the Postprocedure care for Angioplasty?

  1. The patient may need to stay in the hospital for at least 4 hours.
