Angioplasty Surgery
I would like to consult in the matter of Angioplasty Surgery of my father. After angioplasty surgery he caught with a blood infection for some unexpected reason and was on antibiotic for 10 continuous days. Angioplasty has been conducted at Apple Sarswati Hospital Kohlapur. Today, almost after 1 month of surgery he is feeling comfortable. As per recently conducted reports, Heart EPF is still coming 50% which tells us that heart is not functioning properly. I would like to take second opinion on this matter. Is this condition normal?
