Coronary means Heart and Coronary Angiography is done to check the blockage in the arteries which carry blood to the heart. There are 4 major Coronary Arteries. When a child is born these arteries are soft and clear of any kind of blockages. Over the years due to several factors which includes sedentary lifestyle, smoking, heredity, junk and oily food, obesity, there is fat deposit on the walls of the coronary arteries. This deposit narrows the artery and the blood supply to the heart gets reduced. Whenever such a person exerts a little bit there is pain in the heart and the danger of a heart attack becomes a reality. This disease is called Coronary Artery Disease and the test to diagnose the diaease is called Coronary Angiography. Every person would be having some amount of blockage in the arteries but the problem is not grave until the blockage goes beyond 60-70%. In such situations the person would start having symptoms of coronary artery disease like pain in the chest, arms or legs. Basic tests like ECG, TMT, Echocardiography also indicate the presence of the coronary artery disease but the best test to fully and correctly diagnose the disease is Coronary Angiography. This test can also be done on CT Scan machine but the results are not as good as those on a Cath Lab.
Coronary Angiography is available in only 100 odd cities of India and Moradabad is one of them. The test can be done only on a special machine called Cath Lab. This machine costs in excess of 2 crores of Rupees and therefore very few hospitals have installed the machine. The test is done by Interventional Cardiologist who specializes in the treatment of heart disease. After MBBS one has to do MD (Medicine) for 3 years and then do DM in Cardiology which is again a course for 3 years. The total study done by a Cardiologist is atleast 11 years. There are very few good interventional cardiologists in the country and this is also one of the reason for the low availability of the Cath Lab. In this test the patient lies on the table and the cardiologist gives local anaesthesia to the patient. The test can be done through the femoral artery of the leg or the radial artery of the hand. The cardiologist inserts a very thin wire into the artery and pushes it further till it reaches the coronary artery near the heart. X-Rays emitted by the machine produce live images of the coronary arteries on the computer screen and the cardiologist is able to find out the extent of blockage in the arteries. If any artery has more than 70% blockage then the next procedure for reducing this blockage called angioplasty can be done in the same sitting which saves time and money for the patient.
Dr. Anupama Bansal is one of the best DM Cardiologist in the entire state of Uttar Pradesh for doing EP Studies. The test is done on state of art 16" Flat Panel Cath Lab imported from Philips, Netherlands. Dr. Anupama has more than 17 years of experience in the treatment of all heart problems including interventional cardiology procedures like Angioplasty. Dr Anumpama Bansal has done her post graduation (MD) in Medicine and Superspecialization (DM) from the prestigious King George Medical College, Lucknow. Coronary Angiography requires the patient to get admitted in day care and is discharged within few hours from the hospital if the angiography has been done through the hand which is called Radial Angiography. If the angiography has been done through the thigh, called Femoral Angiography then the patient has to be in the hospital for one night. The cost of Coronary Angiography at our hospital is Rs. 10,000. The cost in metro towns for the same procedure is close to Rs. 20,000. If Angioplasty is done in the same sitting then only 50% cost of the Angiography is charged from the patient. If the patient is on blood thinners then those medicines have to be stopped for two days before angiography can be done. Patients who are suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease are at high risk during this procedure because a dye is injected which can harm the kidneys.
