Coronary angioplasty is a minimally invasive technique of abdominal artery angioplasty, which is used to treat coronary arteries that are obstructed or constricted and it is the most appropriate technique used by doctors for the treatment. In simple words, A treatment for the enlargement and opening of narrowed or blocked arteries which supply your heart muscle is coronary angioplasty and stenting.
Procedure of Angioplasty
The Coronary Angioplasty procedure done in various process:
Access artery, insert catheter in groin/wrist, apply anesthetic for comfort. Treats blockages/narrowing in arteries.
Imaging and Evaluation:
A contrast dye is injected through the catheter, and X-ray imaging is used to visualize the coronary arteries. This helps the cardiologist identify the location and severity of the blockage.
Balloon-tipped catheter advances to blockage, inflates, widening artery, restoring blood flow by pressing plaque against walls.
Stent Placement (if necessary):
Stent inserted after balloon inflation keeps the artery open, a wire mesh tube locks in place and pushes plaque.
Angioplasty’s crucial aspect is recovery, monitoring the patient’s ability to resume daily activities. Cardiac rehab can aid healing.
Why It’s Done ?
A medical procedure for the repair of restricted or obstructed blood vessels is angioplasties, also known as balloon angioplasty and coronary Angioplasty. It’s about placing a catheter in the artery and using it to draw your guide wire towards the site of injury. The narrowed segment is then advanced and inflated with a specialized balloon catheter, which forces the plaque or blockage against the arterial walls to widen the conduit and improve blood flow.
1. Minimally invasive procedure with smaller incisions and reduced recovery time.
2. Immediate relief from angina symptoms and reduces the risk of heart attack by opening blocked arteries and preventing blood clots.
3. Long-term benefits, including stabilization of coronary artery disease and potential life expectancy improvement.
Coronary angioplasty treatment carries risks: artery damage, bleeding, blood clots, infection, and allergic reactions to dye. Restenosis can occur, and rare cases may have heart attack, stroke, or cardiac perforation. Monitoring and quick medical attention can help reduce risks.

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the only and speediest tests utilized to survey the heart. Anodes (small, plastic patches that stick to the skin) are set at certain spots on the chest, arms, and legs.
A two-dimensional Echocardiogram or 2D Echo test is a demonstrative test that employs ultrasound waves to evaluate the working of the heart.
Holter monitoring measures your heart activity over an extended period, usually between 24 and 48 hours. Basically, a Holter Monitoring is a portable device which records the heart’s electrical signals.
Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into your arteries. A blood pressure measurement may be a test that measures the force (pressure) in your arteries as your heart pumps.
Coronary angiography diagnoses and evaluates coronary artery blockages. Contrast dye is injected into arteries, enabling X-ray imaging to visualize blood flow and identify narrowing or blockages.
Best Cardiologist in Nagpur
Introducing Dr. Chetan Rathi, a distinguished Cardiologist in Nagpur, whose eminence transcends the realm of medical proficiency.
An Electrophysiology Study (EP study) is a test utilized to assess the heart’s electrical framework and check for abnormal heart rhythms. The natural electrical impulses coordinate the contractions of different parts of the heart.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive medical procedure that uses high-frequency electrical currents to generate heat, effectively destroying abnormal tissue or cells.
Pacemakers are medical devices designed to support and regulate the electrical system of the heart, ensuring it functions properly. This medical procedure entails the insertion of a small device into the chest region.
An Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (ICD) is a life-saving device that plays a crucial role in monitoring and regulating heart rhythms. It consists of a pulse generator and leads implanted in the heart.
CRT_P & CRT-D Implantation
CRT implantation is a process in which technological instruments known as CRT-P and CRT-D where p stands for pacemaker and d stands for defibrillator.

Dr Chetan Rathi sir is good cardiologist. I visited him many times with my family and friends for consult about issues related with cardiology.
An Electrophysiology (EP) study is the test that examine the heart’s abnormal electrical activity while RF (Radiofrequency) Ablation is the treatment for abnormal rhythm. The heart’s electrical system produces signals (impulses) that control the timing of the heartbeats. During an EP study, electrophysiologists can create a very detailed map of how these signals move between each heartbeat.… Continue reading Know about EP Study and RF Ablation… A Novel treatment for ArrhythmiaRead More
An arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. If you have an arrhythmia, your heart may beat faster or slower than others without arrhythmia. There are several different conditions might cause your heart to beat abnormally, and treatment depends on the cause. What is an arrhythmia? An arrhythmia (also called dysrhythmia) is an irregular or abnormal heartbeat.… Continue reading Arrhythmia – Focusing SVTRead More
Managing high blood pressure is crucial for overall health. Here’s an overview of what it entails: What is Hypertension? Hypertension is a condition where the force of blood against the artery walls is consistently too high. It’s a kind of “silent killer” because it may not show symptoms but can lead to severe health… Continue reading Managing Hypertension: Understanding and Combating High Blood PressureRead More
