When the arteries carrying blood to the heart are found to be blocked more than 60% during a Coronary Angiography test then the procedure to open the arteries is called Coronary Angioplasty. There are four major arteries which supply blood to the heart which is then pumped by the heart to all parts of the body. When these arteries are partially or fully blocked then the heart does not get sufficient blood to pump and the patient can suffer a heart attack. During a heart attack, the heart muscle gets damaged and this damage to the heart cannot be reversed. A patient who is suffering a heart attack should be rushed immediately to a hospital which has a Cath Lab and an Interventional Cardiologist, so that the procedures to restore blood supply to the heart can be carried out at the earliest before much damage has been caused to the heart. If the patient has 3 or more arteries which are partially or completely blocked then there are two options - either to go for Open Heart Surgery to replace the blocked arteries or to go for Angioplasty to open up the arteries.Since open heart surgery is a major surgery and not all patients are fit enough to survive such a big surgery, angioplasty is the preferred choice for such patients. If one or two arteries are blocked then it is ideal for the patient to undergo angioplasty to open up the blocked arteries.
Coronary Angioplasty is available in only 100 odd cities of India and Moradabad is one of them. The procedure 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. Angioplasty 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. In this procedure the patient lies on the table and the cardiologist gives local anaesthesia to the patient. The procedure 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 monitor 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 cardiologist will use a balloon to inflate the artery at the point of the blockage and then place a stent which is a metallic spring like device which keeps the fat deposited in the artery suppressed and opens up the artery. The balloon is then deflated and the wire inserted inside the artery is withdrawn.
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 Angioplasty requires the patient to get admitted to the hospital and the stay is for 2-3 days. On the day of the procedure the patient is kept under observation in CCU where the team of doctors keep a close watch on the recovery of the patient. The cost of Coronary Angioplasty is Rs. 1.20 lacs for the procedure plus the cost of the stent which is approximately Rs. 30-35 thousand per stent. If Angiography 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 angioplasty 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. Our cardiologists at Brightstar Hospital have a very good and extensive experience of doing these procedures with a very high success rate.
