What are the steps involved in Angioplasty?

Angioplasty involves the following steps:

  1. The patient will be sedated and after sedation, a catheter or small tube will be inserted into the large artery.
  2. Later, the catheter is slowly directed throughout the artery until the tip reaches the vessel that needed to be examined.
  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 finds blocked/narrowed blood vessels.
  5. Then, a small balloon at the end of the catheter will be inflated and widens the narrowed artery.
  6. After widening the artery, the balloon will be deflated. In some cases, a stent will be placed in the blocked artery for normal blood flow.

What is the recovery care for Angioplasty?
